Plum Crazy Ranch Fiber Art Giveaway

This fiber is so soft it floats through your fingers like butter. It spins up fine and beautiful.

Plum Crazy Fiber Arts Dyed Silk Carrier Rods Giveaway

Our final giveaway of this round is from Plum Crazy Ranch Fiber Art. These are dyed carrier rods. I had no idea how fun these would be to spin!


I found this youtube video that describes how to use silk carrier rods in felting and spinning. It looks so beautiful in the felted pieces they show in the video.



It's so much fun to see what you can do with them, and the yarn seems to be fuzzy and soft looking although still very fine.

Handmade Hollows Rolags Giveaway

For our next giveaway, Handmade Hollows sent us this beautiful set of rolags. She calls this colorway Moss. These are so soft and sparkly!


These pretty little things have Merino, Bamboo, Firestar, Angelina, Banana Silk, Mohair, Suri Alpaca, and silk! Whew! That's a lot of lovely contained for your spinning pleasure. They seem like even will all that, they'd spin into a smooth sort of yarn.


You can spin rolags right from the end for a very nice and satisfying yarn. I'm a pre-drafter. I like to pull each roving out into a nice loose pre-drafted roving. Once the rolag is drafted out, I roll it up into a fluffy ball and spin from the end. I can get a consistently fine yarn from pre-drafting in this way.
