I ordered some yarn for last-minute Christmas presents on the evening of Monday the 14th. The morning of Tuesday the 15th I got a notification that most of my order had shipped, but one color would be back-ordered and would most likely arrive in 2-4 weeks. Yesterday was Wednesday the 15th, and I got notification that the rest of my order had shipped. The USPS website informs me that the first parcel is out for delivery and the second will arrive tomorrow.
This is why I order from Halcyon Yarn. Ordering yarn on Monday and being able to cast on on Thursday is a level of service that MAYBE two other online yarn stores I know of can hope to achieve. And Halcyon does it right, every single time, even at the peak of the Christmas crazy season, and the warning that this time one of the colors might not arrive in time only added to my delight.
About the only way Halcyon could improve would be to send me the yarn before I knew I wanted it. I will keep an eye out for unexpected parcels just in case.
