Cascade 220 Superwash Wool Yarn description:
Silky soft and superwash! Your care worries are over, because the durable feature of this yarn will make your colorful projects “oh-so-practical” for babies, children, teens and adults. The fiber is treated by smoothing the scales to prevent felting rather than coating the barbs, making this a lifetime superwash protection and not a temporary fix that wears off over time. Knits to a DK gauge.
Weavers: This is a perfect non-fulling pattern weft for home furnishings project.
A friend brought me my first Halcyon Yarn catalog from her visit to Maine and I'm so glad to have found such a wonderful resource.
Firstly, Halcyon Yarn has excellent product selection for weavers, knitters, crocheters and spinners, and the website is easy to navigate. I found the customer service person (Susan?) very knowledgeable and helpful when I called with a question, and email replies to questions I had about a back-ordered item were fast and very helpful. I placed an order online and it arrived within two days! I do live in the Northeast, but was still amazed at the rapid order fulfillment and delivery.
The yarn sample cards are terrific. Being able to see the actual color and feel the texture of a yarn you're considering makes all the difference.
The yarn and equipment catalogs I requested arrived with my order and, of course, I'm drooling over them. All in all, I find Halcyon Yarn an excellent resource for needlework hobbyists and have no doubt they will continue to be my first choice in shopping for weaving and knitting supplies.
