Harrisville Turbine

TURBINE was created by combining two ends of flyWHEEL on the spinning frames. This technique is known as ‘mock-twisting’. By doing this, the yarn comes off of the frames more puffy and soft, but also more delicate than tightly spun singles. To add strength and durability Harrisville aggressively combined three plies together on the twister to create a ropy and more durable yarn. In addition, they developed TURBINE to create exceptional textures and stitch definition in the knitting. If you look at the yarn closely, you’ll see the effect that the three ends plied gives the yarn. It looks like water spiraling through a pipe, hence the name!
