The Handspinners from Maupston are trained artists. They may have started out as musicians or dancers or designers or sculptors, but each and every spinner represented by Maupston had prior training in the arts. They each learned multiple spinning techniques from Anna, and they are given huge creative freedom.
The result? Of course, we make lots of yummy 2 ply and single yarns in saturated colors and luxurious fiber combinations. But the artists from Maupston are chosen for their creativity, so don't be surprised to find yarns with intentional slubs, and coils, and noils, and shredded recycled this, and amazing metallic that. We approach yarn differently, as a fine art.
All the yarns from Maupston Design Studio are handspun in limited editions. That means that each skein has been created by human hands, inch by inch. We work in lots of 8 oz to 2 lbs. Once its gone, its gone. So the yarn you buy is not available anywhere else.
It may sound strange, but this wonderful fancy yarn is great for beginners. If you can create a single stitch, you can enjoy handspun yarn. All those colors and all that texture does the design work for you, so anything you make, no matter how simple the pattern, becomes a work of textile art.
You can find handspun yarn elsewhere. It is tough to find so many high quality handspun yarns, with new designs constantly being added, and all in one place. Dive in and enjoy the softest, most luxurious most unique yarn you can find.
