Homestead Cotton Gamp Detail

Temporarily Sold Out! (Wow, that was fast!)

We’re so glad you like the project and apologize that we ran out of these kits faster than expected. If you would like to place a back order for this item we are glad to put you on the list and ship or contact you as soon as they are back in stock. We do not yet have an ETA, but we’re working on restocking as quickly as possible and will keep you updated! Please call or email with any questions or to place a back order.

NEW! Homestead Cotton Gamp Kits – special introductory price for a limited time!

Color Gamps give weavers a wonderful opportunity to better understand the interactions that happen when you blend colors. They’re both playful (yay rainbows!) and practical, plus you’ll create a set of functional items to provide both a color study reference and a pop of fresh hues in your home or studio.

Our newest color gamp project uses a simple 8/2 unmercerized cotton and the colors are more muted than many traditional primary color gamps. We love the softer palette and we’re eager to wind up our bobbins and roll out a picnic with these cheerful and instructive pieces.

Annual Sunshine Report!

 
Sunshine Report Newsletter Header

Each year as we revel in these longest days of summer we like to share an update with you about some of Halcyon Yarn’s non-yarn environmental and social initiatives. Especially after the months of challenges and ongoing hardships faced by many it feels important to celebrate the power we each have to make our little corners of the world a little better, and also to reflect on how we can continue to improve. We believe business can – and must – be a vehicle for creating a better future. We appreciate that it’s your purchases that help make these initiatives possible, and we welcome your ideas for how we can continue to be a better company. Thank you for being a part of our journey and our sunshine!

Our retail shop remains closed to in-person shopping.

We miss seeing our wonderful customers in person and we are glad to prepare a curbside order for you quite quickly if you happen to be in the neighborhood. More details here.

  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Due to recent changes in delivery processes and VAT policies most international shipping remains suspended at this time.
