Including additional font weights in Debut

Is there a way to include additional font weights for use in the Debut theme?  I am using the Helvetica font family but the only font-weights seem to be 400 and 700 -- specifying 500 appears as 400 weight, and 600 defaults to 700 weight.  I see in the typography section of the theme.scss that 'bold' and 'bolder' are both set to 700, changing the values doesn't seem to make a difference.


Thank you,

Hello Ketan, thanks for your reply, I have found a remedy. 

For anyone with a similar issue, the font stack when Helvetica is selected in the Theme Settings generates: Helvetica,"Helvetica Neue",Arial,"Lucida Grande",sans-serif.  Helvetica seems to only supports 4 weights, but Helvetica Neue has more available.  The solution seems to be to edit the css file to flip Helvetica Neue and Helvetica, so it is used first.  Hope that helps.
