Harrisville Designs Wool Yarn and Carded Fleece from Red Barn Farm
Harrisville yarns are 100% virgin wool, available in several yarn styles, there is a yarn for every need whether you are a knitter or a weaver. Go here to see a color chart, click onto the picture to see a larger view all the colors are rich and heathery due to blending several colors in each yarn.
You can knit with any of our yarns, but we especially recommend the Highland Style skeins, because unlike the yarn on cones, they are washed. The majority of knitting yarns are spun first and then skein dyed. During the dyeing process they achieve a degree of fulling or fluffing up that our dyed-in-the-wool yarns on cones do not have. They skein the Highland Style yarns and then wash them to give them that special, softer knitting finish. Click onto the pictures below to see a larger view.
