Tapestry Yarns


BIG  Sale on Harrisville Highland Yarn!

I am selling out of the rest of my Harrisville Highland (worsted weight) yarn.  All the cones are listed.  Some colors have 2 cones.  Just go to the Tapestry/Weaving Category and select your colors! 

HURRY while they last!!

Washing Instructions

You NEED to wash your wool before weaving a tapestry, as you will not be washing it after the tapestry is created.  Also, Harrisville uses an oil in the spinning process for all their cone yarns.

  • I use Seventh Generation Dish Soap — it is mild, pH neutral and biodegradable.
  • Put like colors together and fill your kitchen sink with moderately hot tap water.
  • Add the Soap — you can also use any wool wash that you prefer!
  • Swoosh around and let set about 10 minutes.
  • Empty the water from the sink, squeeze the water out of the yarn and set aside.
  • Fill the sink again with the same temperature water and place the skeins in again to soak for around 10 minutes.
  • You can put them in net bags and spin them out in your washer, or roll them up in towels and stomp on the towels to get the water out.
  • Hang to dry.
  • Now your tapestry yarn is scoured and fluffy — you’ll really enjoy weaving with it now!
