Merry Christmas! Gift Certificates & Elf Notes right up to the last minute…

As we put the last bows on gifts and labels on boxes we are grateful for yet another beautiful holiday season here in Maine. There’s no snow yet, but plenty of twinkle and cheer! With the shortest day behind us now we have a lot to look forward to in the year ahead, and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Even amid the hectic holiday rush so many of you have taken an extra moment to drop a kind message in your order comments and even a delicious treat left on the curbside shelf when picking up an order. We appreciate your endless creativity and your choice to shop with an independent family-run business. Your choices and small acts of kindness truly matter in a world that can sometimes feel so rushed and impersonal. We can’t imagine a more thoughtful and sincere group of people than our customers. Thank you for making Halcyon Yarn a part of your fiber art journey!

Merry Christmas, from all of us at Halcyon Yarn!
