We miss seeing you all in person, thanks for your patience! Ongoing local labor and housing shortages, as well as the many operational changes we’ve needed to make in recent years, have caused us to pause on re-opening the retail portion of Halcyon Yarn until we can again offer the best possible shopping experience. We look forward to seeing you in-person again this summer and we will keep you posted as plans evolve and dates are confirmed.

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