buy the cone!

bought this to enhance my shetland stash for making haps. the 900yd cone is easily the best deal and works up just like the shetland skeins after washing and blocking.

I purchased this Shetland for a practice piece on my loom and for another project to be planned. I was disappointed in the plying of the product. At some points while warping it would actually break with too much tension. My handspun has more ply than this yarn and does not break.

Comments about 24.00 Shetland:

Gorgeous yarn! Bought a cone to knit my first shawl as a gift for a friend. The color was spot on and just beautiful. Knits well with size 8 needles. Generous cone size means I can knit the whole shawl with one cone! Have already chosen another color for my next shawl. Will look into more of Harrisville's yarns. I'm very impressed with their product.

        Comments about 24.00 Shetland:

        The yarn seems very rough and course but a good wash to get all the spinning oil off made a world of difference. It fluffs and softens up quite a bit. It dyes well and despite accidentally being boiled it didn't felt, but I feel it could felt extremely well.

            I am using this in my woven art … combining this with non-traditional materials (aluminum, paper, monofilament). It's the perfect size for what I was searching and performs as expected.

              Comments about 24.00 Shetland:

              The Harrisville Shetland (and, I presume, the Highland though I haven't use it) has a notable characteristic: it adheres to itself. Hooky, if you will. Is this good or bad? Well, that depends on what you make with it. That self-adhesion makes it ideal for anything which involves color patterning, such as Fair Isle work, or felting, as the discrete strands get chummy with one another easily--they don't slide or pick up.

              On the down side, it's a bit prickly for anything worn next to the skin, especially if you're sensitive to touch. Baby clothes, scarves, hats for those lacking hair, that sort of thing.
