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 wanted to hand knit w/this yarn but the color is so off (pinky-purple, not reddish as shown. Our monitor is usually extremely spot-on for color renditions.) and it's very scratchy. Washed & dried a very small sample and it's still rough-textured.
Also, being coned yarn (usually meant for machine knitting, it has no elasticity and is very very hard on my (arthritic) finger joints. So sorry to have to return......

I anticipate using this yarn for a colorwork sweater. It was just as described and therefore just as expected.

Comments about HARRISVILLE DESIGNS Shetland:

The yarn is easy to work with. The colors were true to the chart in the catalogue. One skein had more knots to cut out than I would have liked, but the others were fine.

Comments about HARRISVILLE DESIGNS Shetland:

Color is beautiful! Yarn is exactly as described. While it is initially a bit scratchy (I haven't finished it yet to see how it feels after blocking), it is also luxurious to the touch.

Comments about HARRISVILLE DESIGNS 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 HARRISVILLE DESIGNS 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 HARRISVILLE DESIGNS 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.
