Hand Maiden Fine Yarn

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. 

Hand Maiden Fine Yarn was started on the west coast of Canada in 2005. Outgrowing their nest, Hand Maiden returned to Nova Scotia to join sister brand, Fleece Artist, at a custom designed dye house where the art continues today. Hand Maiden Fine Yarn is a family business proudly employing emerging artists with a flair for colour dyeing custom colours. In addition to the collection we have here, check out River City Yarns Originals: Adam & Eve and Eden collections, dyed for us by the artists at Hand Maiden.
