This distinctive Aran weight yarn was originally created for weavers by Halcyon Yarn. Over 35 years later, this 100% US made yarn is still spun in the same family-run mill.

Halcyon Yarn’s Signature Botanica wool yarn is a unique 100% wool yarn for knitters and weavers. Botanica’s lush and vibrant color palette is a favorite for knitting, felting and weaving. The hard to find colors make it especially interesting for knitting intarsia and stranded or other Fair Isle designs. The unique spiraled 2-ply twist creates a distinctive yarn with a shadowed or corded appearance that looks fantastic in every stitch and lends great texture and definition to any piece.

A hearty New England classic.

100% US wool, spun in Maine.

Botanica’s smooth, uniquely pearly twist creates a delightfully squishy but durable fabric that is very resistant to pilling. Its warmth, softness, and long-lasting wear make it a great choice for sweaters, jackets, and winter accessories that will last season after season.
