New from Harmony Farm Candles.

We are delighted to announce the newest addition to our gifts section here at the shop: a brand new scent from Harmony Farm Candles, custom made for the Hillsborough Yarn Shop!

Harmony Farm Candles is run by our friend Erin in nearby Mebane, North Carolina. She hand-pours her candles in small batches using 100% US-sourced soy wax and essential oils, with no added dyes. Their scents are fresh and bright, but not overwhelming – “delightfully fragranced,” as she puts it. We asked her to concoct a custom scent for our shop, one that evokes woolens but would be pleasing year-round, and after a thoroughly enjoyable period of testing, she delivered to us the scent you see here: Lavender Eucalyptus.

It’s everything we hoped it would be, herbaceous and calming, smelling exactly of its namesake. Come by the shop and give it a sniff!

We offer a rotating selection of other Harmony Farm Candles, as well, changing with the seasons and our moods. Here’s a snapshot of our current selection: Spring Meadow smells of fresh cut grass, a favorite of Anne’s; Wintergreen evokes fir trees; Sweet Orange is a clementine doppelganger; and Rose smells of roses, just so.

We find Erin’s candles a perfect companion to an evening of knitting, and we hope you do, too! As gifts, they are always warmly-received; keep them in mind for Mother’s and Father’s days, birthdays, and the odd just-thinking-of-you occasion. Look for Harmony Farm Candles in our gifts section!
