…the one with even more nature, some yarn and a big thank you. ;o)
I brought home some yarn from a little trip to Halcyon Yarn:
Jaggerspun wool/silk DK^
ETA: I had a couple of requests for a review of Halcyon Yarn so I decided to add it to this post.
Halcyon was a nice experience. It is housed in an older building in Bath, ME in the middle of a commercial district right off of the highway. It’s pretty easy to find if you have a GPS. ;o) When you first walk in, you are hit with the visual smack of a wall full of Lamb’s Pride and the usual racks of books and some racks full of skeins of Noro and Noro sock yarn. There is a small rack of Malabrigo, also which fascinated me for a few minutes. (I can’t resist a pettable yarn and Malabrigo is infinitely pettable) R and I wandered around looking at everything they offered – I thought they carried Koigu but I was mistaken. If they had, it would have been a much less expensive visit. ;op Behind the wall of Lamb’s Pride there are ceiling-high shelves full of cones of their signature yarns and Jaggerspun. We spent the better part of an hour in there, most of which I spent trying to decide on colors. There are so many choices, it’s a bit overwhelming. RR definitely gets points for patience!
Overall it’s a nice space of which they use every inch, it is packed full of fiber and yarn (mostly yarn). It struck me as a very traditional shop that has tried to move into the 21st century with some of their yarn choices (the Noro and Malabrigo) but mostly carries yarns that would work best on a loom.
Last but definitely not least, thank you all SO MUCH for all your good wishes!! You guys made my week! I’m totally on cloud nine and not coming down anytime soon and it’s all your fault. ;o)
Have a great weekend everyone! For those of you who are interested in shop updates, you might want to click over there on Monday nightish…just sayin’
