Friends in Fiber Rolag Giveaway


This is our last of eight giveaways from our March contributors. In case you missed it (be sure to enter all 8 giveaways!), the first giveaway is for a batch of rolags from The Wooly Witch. The second one is a super soft custom blend from Fellview Fibres.  The third giveaway is another set of fun rolags from The Woolly Lion. The third giveaway is a beautiful skein of fingering weight yarn from With Pointed Sticks. The fifth giveaway is a beautiful braid of BFL from The Hippie Homemaker. The sixth giveaway is a beautiful 2 oz batt from Luthvarian Fiber Arts. The seventh giveaway is our second (and last) yarn giveaway of this round from Knarwhal Knits.



Finally, our last giveaway is a rich and beautiful set of rolags from Friends in Fiber. These yummy rolags are in the most gorgeous shades of green. This giveaway is for over 2 oz in BFL. In their shop they have BFL/Silk rolags, BFL/Silk Spinning Batt, BFL/Silk Top, and Silk Hankies all in this same Emerald City colorway. I know because I've stalked every single listing of this amazing colorway. I love it SO much.



Friends in Fiber tempted me terribly with this one. They said, "oh... it can be a giveaway or you can just spin it up yourself" Do they not understand my addiction? I want to market these shops, and share their wonderful fibers with you all. Anyway, I have to post this before I change my mind.

So, last month we had two people fail to respond to my email that they'd won. We had to pick second winners :( Don't be like them!! Be sure that the email you provide is one that you will check regularly. I state in the subject "You Won! Phat Fiber Giveaway"



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 Friends in Fiber find something you love then come back here and comment about it.

You can gain an additional entry for each of the following: "hearting" the Friends in Fiber Etsy Store, tweeting about the giveaway, or pinning a photo of the roving on Pinterest.

Julie from Knarwhal Knits sent us these adorable little mini-skeins in bright spring colors! The colorway is called Egg Hunt. These are on her Watercolor Squish base that's 100% superwash merino. Who doesn't love mini-skeins? I'm completely addicted. I'm still sometimes working on my Beekeeper's Quilt, but really, I just love making motifs with minis. Each of these 10 minis are 20 yds long. What a fun bright pop of color that you can work into your next project that calls for minis! It's hard to part with these lovely little skeins. I may have to run over to her shop and pick some up.

Meagan from Luthvarian Fiber Arts sent us this beautiful fluffy batt made from soft bouncy Merino wool and sparkly Firestar. This batt is two ounces, but it looks like four because it's so fluffy. I want to open it up and start drafting! The blues and subtle greens are soothing. I'd love to see how this spins up. Would you spin it as a single? Ply it on itself? Ply it with something else you have on hand?

In her shop she has wooden tools, batts, knit items, braids, and rolags! You will definitely find something you love in her Etsy shop: Luthvarian Fiber Arts.

Claire at The Hippie Homemaker decided to have fun with the theme of The Wizard of Oz by dyeing a batch of "Wicked" BFL braids. She sent us one for our giveaway! This is one of my favorite color combinations of all time. The deep violet with the bright green just makes the artists in me feel so good. This braid is 3.35 oz. I will love seeing what the winner does with this braid!  She has more listed in her shop right now.

Knarwhal Knits Gift

Here's a pic of the finished yarn spun from Knarwhal Knits roving that I promised I would post. It came out so nice. About 150 yds in two ply. Not bad. Probably a little thinner than I usually manage. Now to decide what to knit with it...




Tuesday, April 5, 2016

Spun up a gorgeous little gift!

Knarwhal Knits included a roving just for me when she sent in her March Phat Fiber samples.



This was a 3 oz bit of fluff called Easter Basket. When I opened it up, there were three long sections in yellow/orange, blue/green, and violet/pink.


Blue/Green section 

divided each section on half, then pre-drafted them into a fluffy roving. I then spun each section in order on two bobbins. I plied them together to create this gorgeous yarn! 



Now it is drying after a nice wash. I will add a finished photo when I take it down in the morning. For now, here's a finished on the bobbin photo. 




With Pointed Sticks yarn giveaway


This is our fourth of eight giveaways from our March contributors (and only one of two yarn giveaways this month). In case you missed it, the first giveaway is for a batch of rolags from The Wooly Witch. The second one is a super soft custom blend from Fellview Fibres.  The third giveaway is another set of fun rolags from The Woolly Lion. This giveaway is a beautiful skein of fingering weight yarn from With Pointed Sticks.


The shared this as her samples in the March Wizard of Oz box. "Are you a Good Witch or a Bad Witch?" is the title of this soft and lovely blend. This is Merino and Nylon with a touch of Stellina for sparkle. 438 yards of gorgeous yarn that would be perfect for your next shawl or socks! I'm addicted to fingering weight yarn and this one just begs to be knitted. I hope that whoever wins this will show us what they knit. I keep picturing a triangle shawl when I'm daydreaming with these gorgeous giveaways in my hand.

Woolly Lion Giveaway


This is our third of eight giveaways from our March contributors. The first giveaway is for a batch of rolags from The Wooly Witch. The second one is a super soft custom blend from Fellview Fibres.  This third giveaway is another set of fun rolags from The Woolly Lion.



She sent us a double set of 4 different fantastic rolags for 8 total. These Woolly Lion colors are completely yummy and range from soft browns to black with bright pops of color. She included the fiber content on the packages. These rolags are the same ones that she included in the phat boxes this month. The range of colors and the different fibers make me want to dance!

Fellview Fibres Giveaway from the March Phat Fiber Contributors


This is our second of eight giveaways from our March contributors. The first giveaway is for a batch of rolags from The Wooly Witch. This second one is a super soft custom blend from Fellview Fibres.  This fantastic braid was inspired by the brindle colors of Toto from the Wizard of Oz. It is super soft and easy to draft. If this was the only fiber I could ever spin again, I would still be filled with fluffy happiness!



I love the story of Toto that she shared almost as much as I love this super fiber blend roving. This is something that I will continually go to for as my favorite brown roving. It's soft, fluffy, and just loves to be twisted up into yarn. She says on the site that: The blend is made from soft merino fibres in shades of brown blended with natural shades of baby alpaca in brown and grey, finished off with black bamboo.
