Thanks to the Weavers

Halcyon Yarn does an amazing amount of business with all types of fiber artists: rug hookers, rug punchers, rug braiders, needle felters, wet felters, tatters, bobbin lace makers, knitters, crocheters, spinners and hand-dyers. What a list!  Am I leaving anyone out? Wait – What about the Weavers! It might seem to a lot of you that we are a knitting business but long before the knitters, this was a weaving business. For those of you who don’t know, Halcyon started this business out in Denver Colorado and it went by the name Halcyon the Weavers Friend. So this portion of the newsletter is a big fat Thank You! to all the weavers who keep us going strong month after month.

As part of the Thank You, here are 3 classic Halcyon Yarn Weaving Patterns free with any purchase:

Zephyr Woven Scarves In Halcyon’s own words: These scarves are “Luxurious, fast, fun and they make beautiful gifts!” She should know – she designed them… Here’s what it takes: Two mini cones of Zephyr wool/silk (one for the warp and one for the tabby weft), a skein of Soft Twist Gemstone Silk, one skein of Sari Ribbon and one skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn. You use the Gemstone and Sari in the first scarf and the Noro in the second scarf. Want to cut costs? Use the Silk Garden for both scarves.

Log Cabin Baby Blanket… This blanket uses Halcyon Signature Casco Bay Cotton Sport and Signature Casco Bay Cotton Worsted. Try substituting the Casco Bay Worsted Chenille for the Casco Bay Worsted: For one pound of chenille and 2 minis of sport weight cotton, you get two blankets on one warp and an extra smooshy result!

Casco Breeze Woven Scarves This is simplicity at its finest! 2 mini cones of yarn in too many colors to choose from for up to three scarves. Order up the Casco Bay Sport and the Casco Bay Cotton Eyelash today for quick holiday gifts…

Just let us know which ones you want in your order and we will throw them in!
