        I am looking for recommendations for yarn to use for this project. I have always wanted to use Harrisville’s wool and this seems like a good application, assuming I do a close epi and ppi to strengthen the fabric. Does anyone know how this yarn holds up against pilling? Anybody have first hand experience with upholstery applications?

        Any other suggestions? About the only limit I have is I’d prefer a natural fiber.

        Thanks in advance…..

          Hi Ed,
          I have never used Harrisville for upholstery but if you used a linen warp and a closer sett (than say for a blankie) I’m sure it would work. The linen would add some extra strength. I have woven many a blankie with Harrisville at more open setts so I could add the softness of fulling and they have not pilled.
          Hope this helps.
          Cheers,
          jane
