Chase away those winter chills with [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] . This multi-shade, super bulky yarn works up so quickly you’ll have “ready-to-wear” in a flash. Its unique construction of a roving style fiber being wrapped with a thin black thread creates a super soft and lofty yarn. Great for quick weekend projects. Think cowls, scarves and hats. Try using Grand Rapide for the lining of an Alpine Topper hat pattern.

Halcyon made three different colored toppers for her daughters in the two weeks before Christmas from one ball using 3 different solid color Brown Sheep Bulky as their MC and still has enough left for two more. As an added bonus the label includes directions for a 1 skein faux entrelac cowl. Eileen was gracious enough to model. Looking for a bigger project? The [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] , the [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] or the Weekend Neck Down Pullover by Knitting Pure and Simple are great choices for Grand Rapide. We’re very excited about this addition. Give Grand Rapide a try and let us know what you think.

    As I just replied to Amos, we opened Halcyon Yarn, as Halcyon the Weavers’ Friend in Denver before he was even born. The store was in the heart of downtown Denver in a renovated SRO building for about 10 years before we decided to move to Maine to be near the ocean and to have a large, affordable, historical building from which to pursue our goal of a “mail-order” pivot for Halcyon. It was the spring of 1981 when we bought the 77 year old empty post and beam warehouse building, packed everything into a 40 foot trailer and took ourselves, our baby (Halcyon Yarn’s current co-owner) and out dog out to Bath, Maine. The rest as they say…. Here Halcyon Yarn still is almost 50 years from that founding and still going strong with new stewards at the helm, navigating this latest turn of events and twist of fate. Looking forward to working for decades more with fiber makers from all over the world. I feel so fortunate to be able to continue as an advisor and weaving resource for all the friends we’ve made along the way.

    Years ago I bought some natural alpaca yarn and pattern from a small knit shop in Berkeley or Oakland. Can’t remember which.
    The owner of the shop was a brilliant knitter.
    Was that you? Did you ever have your own knit shop in one of those cities?

      Thanks for the question! Halcyon Yarn started out in Boulder, but has been in Maine for almost 40 years. Cheers!
