Knarwhal Knits Giveaway - Rolags!

Okay, I'm playing catch up! There are four remaining giveaways from April that I will list. Then I will start listing the gorgeous giveaways from the May box contributors. I will end these giveaways in about two weeks! They'll be a mid box sale batch of giveaways. The first one is for A Star is Shorn Polwarth/Silk braid. Our second giveaway this round is for an ombre braid from Luthvarian Fiber Arts. The third giveaway is Happies from Willow Fairy Wool. Be sure to enter all 4 for your best chances to win!


Our last giveaway for this mini round is from Knarwhal Knits. This is for a large bunch of her gorgeous April Showers rolags. This is a nice big bunch for us to giveaway.


They are soft and the colors are so pretty together. I love grey and blue together. There's just a touch of sparkle to add shimmer to your finished yarn.



How do I win?! FIRST sign in on the giveaway widget 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 Knarwhal Knits find something you love then come back here and comment about it.

You will earn three additional entries for making a purchase in the Knarwhal Knits Etsy Store and sharing the transaction ID.

These were one of my favorite groups of samples for the April box. They are Happies from Willow Fairy Wool. I love the beautiful color combinations she uses. She also always has very smooth and lovely rolag structure. They are more beautiful in person than you see in the pictures.



This giveaway is for a batch of 4 rolags. They vary in color, but they are sure to make you happy too.

Entry-Form

This next braid is a fun ombre colorway called Cherry Pink from Luthvarian Fiber Arts.



This is a 4 oz braid of Superwash Merino. The color is bright and beautiful. This would be so fun spun up in a long gradient and then navajo plied. How will you spin it up?

A Star is Shorn Giveaway

Okay, I'm playing catch up! There are four remaining giveaways from April that I will list. Then I will start listing the gorgeous giveaways from the May box contributors. I will end these giveaways in about two weeks! They'll be a mid box sale batch of giveaways.


This first one is from A Star is Shorn. It is called a Starsheep Braid in the colorway Thunderclouds. This is 60/40 Polwarth/Silk and is 3.1 oz. This looks like it would be wonderful to spin. Personally, I love wool and silk blends for spinning fine.


It's so soft, and it's not felted at all. You're going to love working with these fibers.

The Hippie Homemaker Giveaway

Did you enter our first giveaway of this round?  It's from Plum Crazy Fiber Art (an angora cloud!) How about the second giveaway from Bristle Ridge Alpacas? Our third giveaway is a Mama Jude Felted Ball Kit! The fourth giveaway is a combed top from Handmade Hollows that she calls Rarity.




This giveaway puts us half way through our April contributor giveaways. With this one, we're giving away a beautiful luxury sock blend fiber called Grape Slushie with a wooden spindle from The Hippie Homemaker.


This would be a great way to learn a new craft. If you already spin, then perhaps you needed a new travel spindle. Such a soft and fun fiber to spin.



How do I win?! FIRST sign in on the giveaway widget 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 Hippie Homemaker 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 The Hippie Homemaker Etsy Store, tweeting about the giveaway, or pinning a photo of the roving on Pinterest.

You will earn three additional entries for making a purchase in the The Hippie Homemaker Etsy Store and sharing the transaction ID.

Handmade Hollows Giveaway

Did you enter our first giveaway of this round?  It's from Plum Crazy Fiber Art (an angora cloud!) How about the second giveaway from Bristle Ridge Alpacas? Our third giveaway is a Mama Jude Felted Ball Kit!


For this giveaway, we have a combed top from Handmade Hollows that she calls Rarity. This one is on Merino, but in her shop, you can choose Merino, Polworth, or SW Merino. This super soft blend will spin up beautifully. I think it would be fun to ply it back on itself and let it barber pole. I know most people don't like that look, but I think it's fun especially with a limited palate like this one.


If you want to win this beauty, just follow the instructions below. Did you know, I pay for shipping for the giveaways? You really just win the roving, and it arrives in your mailbox. 


I always encourage winners to continue supporting our independent artists. Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to enter all of our giveaways each month.
