Flight of Stitch Markers – NEW!
For anyone who’s not sure which style of Cocoknits stitch marker to try first, here’s a handy sampling. Just like a wine or craft beer tasting ‘flight’, the Flight of Stitch Markers offers a wide variety of styles and sizes to experiment with!
Each of the five types are in rainbow of colors, made of nylon coated steel – they cling to magnets. They come in their own little kraft paper tubes of 24 markers each for easy storage and transport. Perfect for gifting, beginner knitters, or anyone curious about branching out in their marker array – you can never have too many!
Each delicious style includes 24 markers – 4 each of 6 colors.
Maine Made Cherry Swift and Wooden Ball Winder Combo
A great swift and ball winder are an indispensable part of every fiber artist’s studio, and our sturdy and beautiful wooden versions are simply the best. No more having your partner stand with their arms up for hours or wrestling skeins around the back of a chair! You’ll be proud to display these functional works of art in your home or studio.
Made in Maine, Halcyon Yarn’s hand-crafted cherry swift features simple Shaker styling and a hand rubbed oil finish. It stands 32 inches tall and accommodates up to a 72 inch skein. The furniture grade construction means this beauty can handle even the heaviest rug wools, yet the smooth joints and finely finished wood assure that this swift won’t snag or damage even the most delicate silks or handspun yarns.
The maple hardwood jumbo ball winder can wind up to 1 lb balls in style. The steel commercial grade Swiss gears assure a long and productive life. The yarn guide arm swivels 180 degrees to allow for 5 different angles. Includes 2 heavy duty table clamps for mounting.
Each item is great on its own, but together you will be amazed at quickly and easily you can tame unruly skeins. Plus you’ll save money when you get them as a set, available exclusively at Halcyon Yarn!

Sparkling Scarves (knit or weave)
Treat yourself to a little bit of glamour with either of these slinky, soft and sophisticated wraps! (Both available in kits too!)
The All Through the Night Wrap - Pattern Download is knit on the bias with a repeating lace motif that gradually drifts across the fabric, this wrap is extra long so you can wear it a hundred different ways. Katia’s Air Lux is a blend of merino and viscose. It knits up into a fabric that looks and moves like liquid metal with an intriguingly fuzzy finish.
This project uses 3 skeins of Air Lux, or approximately 984 yards of your favorite fingering weight yarn.
Dancing on the Ceiling Woven Shawl - Pattern Download is a shimmering and lofty woven shawl. Created in a simple twill variation, the result is a smooth, drapey, and oh-so-soft shawl you’ll never want to take off!
The unique shine and texture of the twill pattern made us think of a hammered tin ceiling, and the name stuck. Warped in Tencel for extra smooth drape. Finished size: 11.25″ x 63.75″ plus a 5″ fringe. The project is suitable for advanced beginner to intermediate weavers.
Knitty Gritty Project Bags
Knitty Gritty Project Bags are thoughtfully handcrafted in the USA. Made with the adventurous knitter (or weaver) in mind, they will last a lifetime.
The cinch top design allows for secure storage. The all natural, vegetable-tanned leather carry handles can be used to hang from your arm and knit on the go and the clever design features three brass grommets to allow for tangle free knitting on the go.
One main pocket is sized to hold a folded pattern. Five smaller pockets (1 zip pocket) on the other side of the bag provide for storage of needles, scissors, and other small accessories. Dimensions: 10 in. Wide, 10 in. Tall, 6 in. deep, 15″ wide mouth opening when fully open.
The sturdy waxed canvas has a unique feel and look that will age and patina similar to leather. The wax provides a bit of weather resistance as well.
