From its inception, Halcyon Yarn has been an ardent supporter and fan of Wild Fibers Magazine. Often referred to as “The National Geographic of Fibers”, Wild Fibers is an extraordinary blend of photography, culture, environment and FIBER. With each issue editor and publisher, Linda Cortright, magically transports you around the world, introducing you to extraordinary people and practices.
Linda (above, right) has made the decision to change from publishing four issues a year to just one single expanded issue. The latest magazine, [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] is the first annual issue. Beyond being double in size you’ll notice stylistic changes too. Linda’s words describe it best “I have chosen to write this issue in a tone that might typically be more reflective of a book. In some – not all – of the articles I have shared some intimate moments, which have made the experience so much richer for me, and I hope, for all of you as well.” Linda is a dedicated explorer and dynamic storyteller. The change in format stems from her desire to devote more time and effort to the Cashmere Center, as well as being due to some health issues. The format suits the depth of the content, and the stories and photos are unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere.
