Is this the year to splurge? A Spinning Wheel or a Loom… or the incredible Wooden Ball Winder & Cherry Swift combo!

The new Flatiron Spinning Wheel by Schacht spins like a dream. It comes flat-packed and is easy to put together, with a great price and fresh looking design.

If a more traditional style appeals to you, the Kromski Symphony is a masterpiece of fine woodworking and fantastic function, in your choice of finishes. To learn more and select just the right wheel see our Spinning Wheel Guide.

Remember – Spinning Wheels ship FREE to the lower 48!

Rigid Heddle Looms are a great way to get started weaving. They’re portable, quick to learn, and affordable, and you can make so many things on even the smaller models – think scarves, shawls, table linens or yardage for home decoration. We recommend the Schacht, Kromski, and Ashford models. To learn more about the different features, check out our Rigid Heddle Guide.

Gift Certificates

Give the gift of creativity, with a Halcyon Yarn Gift Certificate. It can be hard to choose materials for the creative folks in our lives – or to expect your loved ones to know just what colors (or yardage!) you’d like to receive… Well, there’s nothing generic about a Gift Certificate from Halcyon Yarn, it’s the perfect way to make sure the recipient receives something creative, enriching, and in just the right color! Gift Certificates are good on all merchandise, as well as classes at Halcyon Yarn, and they never expire.
