This is such a fun little bracelet from Chaleur Hand-Dyed Yarn. I'm not generally a jewelry person, until now!

My Stash

Every month I pick a contributor or two to buy something from for myself or as a gift. I love to see Phat Contributors full sized items, and to be honest, I'm just as addicted to Phat Fiber as everybody else.

Our contributors amaze me with their fantastic colors and beautiful fibers. They entice me with colorways that I never knew I would want. Soft pastels are never something I think I want, but that's what I picked up from Elemental Fiberworks this month. I always wish that I can buy more because I touch each and every one of the samples that they send as I fill boxes, photograph the samples, and talk about them in the video. It takes a strong will not to go spend everything I have in all of these amazing shops. I'm planning to start posting a few pictures of my favorite full sized items, and I hope to show you what I'm doing with them. As a customer, I am giddy when opening a package just for me. I run my hands over the fiber or yarn, and I smile thinking about what it will become.

I have some Jellybeans Yarns, Kitty Mine Crafts fiber/yarn, FiberQuirks fiber, and lots more to show you. I'd love to see the full sized items that you have received as well. Each month I am joyfully surprised by the quality of shops that we receive in our Phat Fiber boxes.

As much as I would love to, I can't buy everything, so I am counting on you to help me see what I'm missing out. I'm especially looking for the colorways you buy that were not featured in the Phat Fiber box. What did you discover about them? What drew you do that item and what did you think when you got it?

The Wooly Witch Giveaway - 12 gorgeous rolags!




Welcome to our fifth giveaway from December contributors. Be sure to also enter the first giveaway from Jellybeans Yarns, second giveaway from Willow Fairy Wool, and third giveaway from Handmade Hollows, and our fourth giveaway from DesignsbyTami.

I'm so excited to share this giveaway with you today. Tiffany, owner of The Wooly Witch, sent us 12 gorgeous rolags for giveaway. Each little snowflake of a rolag is available in her Etsy store. If you see one in this grouping that is sold out or not listed, all you have to do is send her a convo, and she'll fix you right up.







 She's given us a handy cheat sheet to see what fibers are included in each of these beauties. I kept them in the packaging for photos for two reasons. The first reason was that I didn't want to mix them up, so that the cheat sheet would still be good. The second reason was that I knew if I put my hands on these rolags, I would start to gently pull them into roving. I knew I wouldn't be able to resist spinning one or two of them up. I have no willpower when it comes to beautiful fiber. 


If you want them, enter this giveaway at the top of the screen. If you see a favorite already, go to her shop and snatch some up.

Winners will be drawn for all current giveaways in this round on January 23rd at 6pm.

How do I win?!

Sign in on the giveaway site above. You'll be given several options to gain entries to the giveaway. The first, and only mandatory entry, is that you will go to The Wooly Witch find something you love then come back here and comment about it.

You will earn three entries for making a purchase in the The Wooly Witch Etsy Store and sharing the transaction ID.

That's all of our giveaways for our December contributors! Thank you for supporting our independent artists.

Handmade Hollows Giveaway - Arabian Nights Batt



Welcome to our third giveaway from December contributors. Be sure to also enter the first giveaway of yarn from Jellybeans Yarns and second giveaway from Willow Fairy Wool.

Today I'm posting a gorgeous "Arabian Nights" Handmade Hollows batt for giveaway. This batt contains: Alpaca/Romney, Finn, Alpaca, BFL, Kid Mohair, Firestar, Soffsilk, and Angelina. It's sparkly and gorgeous. It's the same fibers in the samples Alice submitted for the December Phat Fiber Sampler Box. This batt is lightly carded, so the colors are rich and strong, right on the surface. Underneath the deep colors is a super soft brown. I'm in love with this batt!

Soft fibers, brilliant colors, and looks like it would be so much fun to spin up.
