Halcyon Yarn, as far as I am concerned is a wonderful supplier of a great variety of many fine Yarns for Kniting and Weaving and if you are in need of new equipment or books or tools Halcyon is the choice. I have been a customer since the early 1980's and enjoy interacting with this Company by Phone or Internet for my yarn orders.
Whenever I am asked where I purchase my weaving supplies, Halcyon Yarn automatically is my first choice and I recommend them highly.
Thank You Halcyon!
