Hand Maiden Swiss Mountain Tussah – 3/28/14

Hand Maiden Swiss Mtn. Tussah


Here’s an old friend we haven’t seen for awhile ~ Hand Maiden’s Swiss Mtn. Tussah!  It has just arrived and is bringing back such fond memories and inspiring new adventures.  We think of Swiss Mtn. Tussah as the quintessential “un-wool.”  Its rustic nature creates a yarn that is soft, cushy, and warming in much the same way wool is, but with the smooth lustrous feel of silk.  Swiss Mtn. Tussah is a beautiful, 100% Tussah silk DK yarn that adds an extra (stunning) dimension to any fabric you create with it.  Perfect for every season and always gorgeous, here.

NEW! Hand Maiden Casbah Silk – 3/27/14

Hand Maiden Casbah Silk


Casbah Silk, Hand Maiden’s other new yarn just arrived!  Everything we have come to love about Casbah comes alive in Casbah Silk with the luxurious addition of an abundance of silk!  This DK/worsted beauty simply begs to show off your stitches in a texture-laden sweater or scarf made extraordinary with Cashmere’s softness and heirloom-worthy 4-ply spinning.  Its Merino and Silk content allows Hand Maiden’s colors to simply drench the fiber with richness, while its softness and masterful spin delights your hands as you create with it.  Casbah Silk is made for luxurious softness, heart-melting color, and classic elegance, here.

NEW! A Smattering of Hand Maiden Smitten – 3/26/14

Hand Maiden Smitten

Sea Oak

We’d like to introduce you to an exciting new member of the Hand Maiden pantheon of yarn: Smitten.  Smitten is Silk Twist’s big sister, a sparkling DK featuring 2 plies of 100% Merino with one dazzling ply of premium Silk.  Here at Colorsong, we were so excited about this new yarn that we didn’t want to wait for the big shipment that will arrive in Halifax sometime in April.  So, we talked with Hand Maiden and were able to buy out the small sampling they had on hand, thereby bringing you a taster of Smitten along with a promise of more to come.

Smitten is a delicious yarn confection, the sort that begs you to sink your fingers deep into its skeins; the sort that inspires so strongly that images of shawls, sweaters and more come bounding into your mind.  Smitten’s Merino enfolds as it’s Silk dances in the light.  And, of course, you’ve already noticed its deep and rich colors.  All this comes with a price that is lower than any we’d hoped for at this quality: $29.95/100g.  This, truly, is a wonderful yarn, here.

Hand Maiden Keji Cashmere – 3/25/14

Hand Maiden Keji Cashmere


We have 8 newly arrived colorways of Keji to share with you.  If you haven’t made Keji’s acquaintance yet, you are in for a treat.  Not only is it 100% premium cashmere, and a nearly-Aran weight worsted, but the way it is spun and plied also makes it super springy and strong.  Its 2×3 plying (3 plies, each consisting of 2 single strands) also enhances Keji’s stitch definition beautifully.  Keji will look beautiful and keep you wonderfully warm and cozy for years, here.

Hand Maiden Casbah – 3/21/14

Hand Maiden Casbah


And yet another dazzling dozen arrives! This time it’s Hand Maiden Casbah, beckoning with color and softness.  It seems that no matter how often we order, Casbah simply rushes out of the shop and into the arms of fiber lovers the world around.  It’s soft, springy blend of Merino and Cashmere may well have something to do with that, here.
