I have been purchasing yarn, equipment, and books from Halcyon Yard since the late seventies. When I finally started to visit Maine regularly to see a friend, I always made sure I landed in Bath, Maine to stop at Halcyon and see how the business was progressing. The result: I have been continuously pleased, staff has always been pleasant and helpful.
After a hiatus from weaving due to the passing of my parents, I am again trying to put together my studio. Most of weaving life has been primarily with wool of all types, but I decided I needed a special project for a gift for a friend. I had a number of cones and some hanks of the 2/12 Gemstone silk, but decided to start over with new 2/12 Gemstone silk. When it arrived, quickly and Halcyon's special packaging, I was thrilled with the quality, the touch, and information provided where it spun and dyed and efforts were made to make it more environmentally friendly. This is an exquisite line you have created, and I urge its continuation. I have ALWAYS loved Halcyon from the time I received my first sample box, possibly in 1979 or 1980. Since then I have watched great ideas and great management create new lines of private label yarns, with exciting colors, and reasonable prices. Halcyon is top-notch and will always be my store, my partner in essence, for yarn, books, and equipment. Yes, I love Halcyon and highly recommend this innovative and caring fiber supplies store to every weaver, knitter, and spinner. Go Halcyon! You are impressive!
