Current Operations


Our retail shop remains closed to in-person shopping.

Dear Halcyon Yarn Friends & Customers,

We miss seeing you all in person, however until we can again offer the safest and best possible shopping experience we remain closed to in-person visitors. Due to the many operational changes we have made over the past two years we can’t just open back up, like we were flipping on a switch. If only it were that easy! We will resume an in-person experience again, but at this time there is no scheduled date for doing so. We appreciate your understanding!

  • Curbside (contact-free) orders available for pick up M-F, noon – 5pm, except for holidays.
  • Shop Online 24/7! Orders ship out M-F and in-stock items typically ship out in 1-4 business days.
  • Telephone Customer Service, Monday – Friday, 11am – 5pm (EST).

We are glad to prepare a curbside order for you quite quickly if you happen to be in the neighborhood. More details here.

  • Many delivery carriers are experiencing delays due to staffing and safety limitations in certain areas. Likewise many of our vendors are experiencing delays, thereby lengthening wait times for certain items. We sincerely appreciate your patience. If you would like your order expedited, would like to pre-order/back order items, or have questions about availability please call and we’d be glad to help with your order.

We continue to offer the same great products and dedicated customer service you can always count on from Halcyon Yarn. We appreciate your understanding and continued support – thank you!

Happy Mother’s Day!


Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Halcyon Yarn!

Searching for the perfect last minute gift for a special mother or mother figure in your life? Whether it’s your mom, grandmother, the mother of your child, or someone wonderful who nurtured you (maybe you have a weaving or knitting “mom” who taught you the craft?) we’re here to help with a Gift Certificate for that special someone!

How many of you learned your craft from a mother, grandmother, or other mother figure? Or maybe it’s your turn to share and there’s someone you’re teaching your favorite fiber art? A Gift Certificate for them and the opportunity to spend time on a project you plan together could be just the right way to connect!

That’s what being a mom is all about, sharing what you know, having fun together, instilling skills in another generation, nurturing traditions, and making the time to spend with someone you love. For many of us fiber arts are at the heart of skills shared and time well spent!


We are happy to email the recipient a colorful digital Gift Certificate with your personalized message in plenty of time to celebrate Mother’s Day this Sunday, May 8th!

Or, we can email it to you directly to print at home and deliver in person. Flowers, brunch, and a Gift Certificate to Halcyon Yarn, now that sounds like a perfect Sunday!

Halcyon Yarn Gift Certificates never expire and they can be used for any purchase at Halcyon Yarn. You can order online and specify your message and delivery method, or call 800-341-0282 and let us help you place an order and celebrate mom!

For your Gift Certificate to be emailed in time please place your Gift Certificate order no later than 4pm (EST) Saturday, May 7th. Telephone service is available until 5pm Friday, and email orders will be processed until 3 pm Saturday, if you need further assistance outside of telephone hours you may contact us here.
