We are glad to prepare a curbside order for you if you happen to be in the neighborhood! Please allow an hour for curbside orders to be ready and let us know if you need to pick up outside of regular business hours.

  • Many delivery carriers are experiencing delays due to staffing and weather limitations in certain areas. Likewise many of our vendors continue to experience 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 contact us and we’d be glad to help with your order.

We miss seeing you all in person, however ongoing labor and supply chain issues, 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 as soon as that is possible and we will keep you posted as plans evolve.

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!

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

  •    1,150 yards/0.5 lb. spool • Price/spool: $15.20 • Price 2 (8+): $13.75
  •    275 yards/mini • Price/mini: $7.65 • Price 2 (8+): $6.95
