Cherry Swifts

Cherry Wood Swift

A holiday favorite for every fiber artist! Our Maine-made cherry swifts are the ultimate luxury equipment for any fiber artist’s studio. Carefully handcrafted and built to last (mine is over 20 years old and still works perfectly!) it makes managing your skeins a pleasure.


Wide Bow Scissors

Sharp, jet black, and wonderfully precise. These will look great on your craft table and there’s no thread too fine for these little snips.


Stocking Hooks

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care… and without leaving a mark! Sturdy wood or wrought iron sock hooks are made in Maine and are a great way to display your family’s stockings. These clever hooks will hold your stockings (fully stuffed with goodies!) without the need for nailing into anything. Plus, they make a great gift themselves!

Current Operations


Our retail shop is currently closed to in-person shopping.

Dear Halcyon Yarn Friends & Customers,

We miss seeing you all in person, however until we can again offer the best possible shopping experience we remain closed to in-person visitors. Due to the many operational changes we’ve made over the past two years we can’t just flip a switch and resume in-store sales. If only it were that easy! Ongoing labor and supply chain issues mean we have to wait to re-open the retail portion of Halcyon Yarn. We look forward to offering an in-person experience again and 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!

  • 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!

New! Cotton Bouclé Yarn


New Weaving Yarn – Cotton Boucle

A favorite for weavers, Cotton Boucle by Maurice Brassard is now available in 36 colors. On its own or combined with 8/2 Homestead Cotton or Cottolin, you’ll want to try it for kitchen towels, adding texture to woven yardage, or as a great lightweight scarf yarn. 100% Cotton, the look only improves with washing. It’s available in either half pound spools or convenient mini-cones so you can enjoy the full range of colors without breaking the bank.

At about 34 WPI (wraps per inch) it can easily be substituted in many projects calling for an 8/2 Cotton, or Cottolin. The texture gives you a little extra wiggle room to experiment with a tighter or looser sett and still achieve an attractive and stable cloth.

Keep your eyes out for new kits coming soon, and in the meantime the printed copy of Handwoven’s A Dozen Projects in 8/2 Cotton, offers some starting points for trying out this great yarn!


Cotton Boucle:
• Fiber content: 100% Unmercerized Cotton
• Wraps/inch (WPI) 34
• Weaving, tabby sett 12-18
• Weaving, twill sett 14-18
• Yardage: 2,300 yards/lb
