About us


Distinctive yarns for independent retailers.

Kingfisher is a wholesale distributor of fine knitting and weaving yarns to independent retailers. We emphasize high quality natural fibres, and lines with a distinctive product and design story. Our team has decades of experience in retail, design, marketing, and customer service. Kingfisher Yarn & Fibre is located in Maine. Kingfisher began as the wholesale division of Halcyon Yarn to support the distribution of Halcyon Signature Yarns, many of which have been in continuous production and stocked by independent retailers for decades. We’re delighted to now offer the Jo Sharp Collection of fine knitting yarns.
Coming from a retail background, Kingfisher understands the challenges and joys of the retail yarn seller and we strive to make the process of selecting, stocking, and selling our products as easy and profitable as possible. We believe the fiber arts industry benefits from thriving LYS’s and inspiring brands that customers come back for year after year. We share a passion for beautiful materials, thoughtful presentation, and for helping independent retailers succeed.
