Handmaiden

Each skein of Hand Maiden Fine Yarn is carefully dyed by hand in tiny batches so that no two skeins are exactly alike, making every garment one-of-a-kind.  They like to think of themselves as the haute couture of the yarn world. They hope we find their line as alluring as they do.

Born of complete and utter fibre addiction and a desire to share Swiss Mountain Silks and other exquisite fibres with the knitting community, Hand Maiden Fine Yarn was started on the west coast in 2005. They quickly outgrew their nest and returned to Nova Scotia to join their sister brand Fleece Artist at their custom designed dye house where they continue today.  As always, Hand Maiden Fine Yarn is a family business proudly employing emerging artists with a flair for colour dyeing their custom colours.  Some of their current “maidens” are potters, photographers, textile artists and jewellers with their own art practice.
