We were sad to hear that Handmaiden Fine Yarn is moving back to it’s roots in Nova Scotia. Jana, the Main Maiden, dropped by yesterday to say good-bye.
Happily for us she brought with her several big bins bursting full of beautiful hand-dyed yarns. Wools, silks, mohair, cashmere and sea cell, in pretty much every colour imaginable. We have sumptuous new skeins of Lace Silk, Samira Silk, Mini Maiden, Maiden Hair, Lady Godiva and a bit of the brand new Handmaiden yarn, Sea Three, a beautiful aran-weight mix of silk and seacell.
Perhaps best of all, Jana gave us a few “I’d rather sell it than move it'” discounts. And we’re passing these discounts on to you as our weekly special, all at 25% off the regular price. There’s some luscious black 2 ply cashmere, with 300 metres per 50 gram skein. And some gorgeous hand-dyed Sea Silk, 70% silk and 30% seacell, with a whopping 600 metres per 150 gram skein. Last but not least is the stunning hand-dyed Angel Hair, 70% kid mohair and 30% nylon, with 400 metres per 50 gram skein. Plus a few other bits and bobs that were lying around the Handmaiden studio. These won’t last long…
Farewell Jana, we’ll miss having you around. Be sure to drop by for a visit next time you’re in town!
