Hand Maiden Maiden Hair


Fourteen (14 !) newly arrived colorways of Hand Maiden Maiden Hair are here, ready to share their shimmery, shiny, fluffy goodness with you.  Those of you who participated in the Boo Knits MKAL recently have already discovered how really, really special Maiden Hair is; those of you who haven’t yet made its acquaintance are in for a treat.  Maiden Hair feels like a gossamer dream and looks like a yarn designer’s master achievement, catching everyone’s eye in every way possible, here.

Hand Maiden Mini Maiden


The 2014 colorways of Mini Maiden just arrived!  As you can see, they make this creamy 50/50 silk/wool fingering blend even more delicious.  If you’ve been eyeing a scarf or shawlette pattern, a single skein of Mini Maiden will take you there, with joy.  Come greet the new colors, here.

Hand Maiden Marrakesh – 8/21/14

Hand Maiden Marrakesh


We have 10 newly arrived colorways of Marrakesh, Hand Maiden’s impeccable lace weight Camelspin sibling.  And, isn’t it marvelous what silk and baby camel can do together?  The warm light that glows from within these fibers simply entices and captivates in ways no other fiber combination can quite match.  Marrakesh isn’t just luxury, it’s pure fiber-love, here.

Fleece Artist Northern Nights Blanket Kit – Project “Make-Over!” – 8/19/14

Fleece Artist Northern Nights Blanket Kits


We’ve had these kits for a while and have always found them opulent and in all ways wonderful: not only is the blanket fun knitting with a great result, but if you’re feeling like your yarn room isn’t quite full enough, a single kit will give you an instant stash-boost.  Just kidding (or, maybe not).  Anyway, we love them every time we walk past them, but hadn’t really noticed how very, uh, old their photos were.  Oops! How was it that we missed updating these photos?? And for such gorgeous yarn bundles, too???

Happily, Keri gathered them all up, gave them a little coaching on make-up and hair style, and reshot each and every photo.  The results speak for themselves and really convey how inviting and cozy the Northern Nights Blanket is in terms of fiber, knitting and bundling on a cold night.  So please stop by and take a look.  We think you’ll find them as irresistable as we do (and a bargain, too, as the price is lower than the total price of the individual skeins of yarn!!!), here.

Hand Maiden Lino – 8/15/14

Hand Maiden Lino


We know from all your emails and phone calls that many of you have been eagerly awaiting our next shipment of Hand Maiden’s Lino.  You need wait no more, it is here!  We have received 15 colorways of this superlative lace weight silk/linen combination.  Lino is an amazing yarn – it starts out rather crisp, loosens up to a lovely drape and hand, then blocks out with wonderful definition that holds its place better than anything we’ve seen.  Lino is an elegant and happy choice for anything lacey, here.

Hand Maiden Silk Maiden – 8/12/14

Hand Maiden Silk Maiden

Cactus Flower

We have some delicious newly arrived skeins of Silk Maiden that are sitting in our yarn room practically aquiver with excitement at the thought of getting to become your next project.  Silk Maiden is just one of the very nicest yarns to work with because it is so darned wonderful to touch.  Its 50/50 blend of wool and silk are spun together in a way that makes them feel almost like whipped cream.  This is not only a treat to the hands, but a bit of a wonder to the mind:  How can a yarn this strong and integral have such a sensuous side to it?  Some of our favorite things have been made with Silk Maiden.  You can find what you need for your next favorite thing here.

Hand Maiden Camelspin – 8/8/14

Hand Maiden Camelspin


We found 4 colorways of Camelspin tucked into the corner of a large shipment.  Talk about finding buried treasure!  Finding these skeins was like finding sparkling gems – each beautiful and singular.  Camelspin is one of the most luxurious yarns spun anywhere – the combination of camel and silk is soft and flowing, warming, yet not oppressively so.  Fingering weight, ready to render your next shawl radiantly, here.

Hand Maiden Maiden Hair – 8/7/14

Hand Maiden Maiden Hair


We have more Maiden Hair to share with you!  As brushed yarns make an exciting come back, Maiden Hair stands out as perhaps the most exciting of all.  Here you have a core of finest silk surrounded by a cloud of softest kid mohair.  There’s also a delicious bit of a crinkle to the yarn, which serves to catch more light as it dazzles those who gaze upon it.  Maiden Hair knits as a DK and can be found in abundance here.

Hand Maiden Smitten – 8/5/14

Hand Maiden Smitten

Frozen Ocean

We continue our love affair with Smitten!  Eight colorways arrived at our door last week and bowled us over once again – they are just so beautiful to look at and so luscious to feel!  This cushy, sparkly Merino/Silk DK isn’t just another pretty face.  Smitten offers what we all want: excellent stitch definition, good drape, and a cozy feel that makes working with it and wearing it a delight.  And, we have plenty to choose from, here.

Hand Maiden Casbah – 8/4/14

Hand Maiden Casbah


What could be more fun that a new shipment of 18 colorways of Casbah? [Pause for a moment of reflection.]  Oh.  Of course.  “Having it in your hands so you can create with it!”  Truer words were never said.  Come on over to find the very skein/s you’ve been dreaming of, here.
