Halcyon Yarnâ€¦a field trip, an oasis, a little bit of heaven on earth. Several years ago, while walking around Peaks Island a perfect (and I mean perfect) stranger noticed the sweater I was wearing and asked where I got the yarnâ€¦I told her, "Halcyon Of Course!" She laughed as she had come from "away" to stay on Peaksâ€¦and most especially make a trip to Halcyon. She was going the next day.
I've enjoyed over the years bringing so many friends from away to Halcyonâ€¦and stop every time I drive through heading north from Sanford. The yarns are exquisite, fiber for spinningâ€¦just right for a beginner like me. And when I spent a day with a friend learning to make twig structures for our gardensâ€¦we had so much funâ€¦and icing on the cake was a good shop with baskets full for a summer of knitting.
