Spun and dyed in Maine exclusively for Halcyon Yarn, this stylish 3-ply yarn is a fun and unique fiber combination. One ply of a gentle slub cotton lends a rustic homespun look, a ply of rayon adds sheen, while a third ply of a linen/hemp blend provides extra body and strength.

Each fiber takes the dye color just a little differently so the yarn has rich tonal and textural dimension. Block Island Blend yarn is both rustic and elegant making it terrific for a broad range of projects from sweaters to woven yardage.

The care given the spinning of this yarn in Springvale, Maine, by Jagger Brothers, is a testament to New England’s best textile traditions. The same is true of the dyeing, which takes place at the Saco River Dyehouse, in Saco, Maine.
