Zebisis and Giveaway!








Oh goodness, where to begin! I am near speechless at the beauty of this shop! Several of you received a gorgeous sampling of Zebisis fiber in their March Phat Fiber boxes. Delicious and generous braids of silk and merino in exquisite jewel tones, everything right down to the hand made tags just oozed with decadence! My Zebisis experience can be likened to finding a hidden perfumery on a narrow street- its black walls diffused with faceted and gleaming perfume bottles adorning the shelf after shelf of precious resins and absolutes beckoning you to sample and indulge in an exotic olfactory saturnalia.
Zebisis Designs is a hand spindlers nirvana. If it isn't completely exquisite, it simply is not in Maiysha's shop. I indulged in her spindle club and I am almost giddy with anticipation for the first shipment! You see, Maiysha sent me a package with extra goodies for me to sample (because she is so sweet!)- some deliciously jewel-toned braids, silk and a gorgeously fluffy batt! The special box also contained a stone whorl spindle to be given away to you, here, on this blog. After moving the spindle between my fingers (no I didn't use it *grin*) it was love at first twirl and there was no option left for me, but to join that spindle club- a perfect example of my "it's my birthday" justification routine.
Ok, I'll stop gushing and get on with the giveaway!
Today's offering is a stone whorl (rhodonite) spindle- complete with black lacquered shaft and gold-filled hand bent hook. I will include a bit of Maiysha's decadent fiber for you to play with as well!
Please visit Zebisis and find something you like (so hard, I know) and post about it here. I will be drawing for this next week, so you have time to really click on every listing in her shop. Be sure and leave a way for me to find you, should you be the lucky commenter! I will count your tweets, blogposts, forum shout outs etc as double entries!
Thank you so much Zebisis Designs for your contribution to the Phat Fiber box, and for generally, being awesome.

Great stuff on this site! I love the handpainted fiber in Ocean Blossom! The Facted Octagonal Rainforest Jasper just screams my name! LOL

Mette said...

I was SO lucky to get a sample of silk from her in my March box, and I adore it. even looking through the shop, it's still my fave :) So luxurious, but still so organic and natural looking..
I'm also eyeing that spindle club, though,lol

I've been ogling her shop for several weeks now and each time I visit I fall in love with a different spindle and different fiber. I know I can't spin merino and seriously wish I'd gotten some of her samples in my March box so I knew if I could spin one of the 50/50 blends (merino/silk, bamboo/merino, merino/cashmere). This is exactly why the box is so important!!! Cuz I can't spin everything that's out there and I need to test it before I buy more!!

Today I am in love with the Red Brazilian Agate spindle.

Moderator said...

Maiysha rocks-I have bought a few of her batts and she does wonderful colorways and is so professional!

Dawning Dreams said...

I got a sample in my box as well, and I love the way it feels. The MAMMA Green Aventurine Stone Top Whorl is my favorite. It'd be nice to have something easy to take to the Ren Fairs. Now, off to twitter!

Melissa @ Banana Migraine said...

Wow - I pretty much like everything there. I think the Malachite stone spindle is just gorgeous!!

memarcierenee said...

The Red Brazillian Agate Stone Top Whorl Drop Spindle with Gold Filled Hook is just what I need to replace my handmade spindle with double CD whorl. This is absolutely GORGEOUS. Maybe I could just hang it on the wall for decoration? Oh, I really do like this one.

Headed to my blog now to blog about it and wish and oooh and ahh. And drool.

mad angel said...

I did serious damage to my budget here, only yesterday. I bought the Rainbow Agate spindle with gold wire spiral trim, some Tree of Life silk, and some Twisted Grapevine silk.

Maiysha is a regular, loyal customer of mine, when I have the right dyeables available. That's how we met, got talking about what sorts of spindles she might consider making, etc. Needless to say, she carried it far beyond my wildest expectations, and I am thrilled beyond belief. I'm hoping we can meet in person when I'm in her neck of the woods for a vacation in April.

Oh, and the first spindle she ever listed? I bought it. It's one of those Brazilian fire agates, and so beautiful. I think, even if I had not been a spindler, I would have bought it anyway, as I so wanted to offer encouragement to this lovely lady.

Every time I see a mention of her shop on line, or hear someone mention it in person, I am delighted. She's caught on, in a realm where there is a TON of competition!

I couldn't be more pleased. :-)

k8 said...

Her stuff is so beautiful!! I love that mother of pearl spindle and the malachite spindle and...I need to stop looking now before my kids eat nothing but yarn for a month!!

KJo said...

First thing, Happy Birthday!
Second thing: I really want to learn to spin, but I have no materials and can't afford to buy any... So I really hope I win!
Thrid thing: I love, love, love Twisted Grapevine and Mysterons! I want them.... I wish I had money... ;P

Emrya said...

I have been eyeing her spindle club too! Only I haven't spun enough yet to know if I really want to. Tempting!

I love her Italian Resin spindle though. Absolutely love it.

julieua said...

Agate spindle and luna merino. Love the names and the colors!

JC said...

MYSTERONS Hand Painted Silk, is georgeous. I nearly want to cry because I'm on such a tight budget right now! God, I want it!

Susan said...

She has so much beautiful stuff but I'd love to spin up OOAK Crazy Isis Art Batt ZIVA 1.76 oz. Love it!

Abby said...

There's so much great stuff in the shop, it's hard to pick just one! I do love the Italian Resin Irridescent Leaf Pattern Top Whorl Drop Spindle, though.

EJ said...

I absolutely love the overdyed yarn. It is gorgeous.

What a wonderful giveaway - I have a "thing" for rainforest jasper ( even blogged about it) !

Lady O said...

I love the Malachite spindle and the Mermaid silk roving.

The warm-rain silk/camel is pretty and the blend intrigues me.

Elaine said...

I've never spun but would love to try. I love the overdyed yarn. So purty.

I'll blog about this contest and let you know when it's been done.

Minou14 said...

I haven't been lucky enough to get a sample yet, but her shop is already bookmarked. Those spindles are works of art (Chrysacola? Swoon!)! As for the roving, I love the "Luna", "Lush" and "Best of Everything" colorways. Beautiful stuff!

purple-power said...

I've never spun but the handpainted silks make me want to try.

My favorite is probably mermaid or plumberry.


My rav id is purple (in case I win)

SupaCindy3000 said...

The Lush Silk Roving is gorgeous. I must learn how to spin!!! cdaniele

Jersey said...

I love the yarn. It's really beautiful. Much of the silk is also gorgeous (I love the mermaid colorway)

Thanks for introducing me to this shop.

RogueKnits said...

I love the Persephone merino/silk blend. Such pretty colors! And I'm very intrigued by the camel/silk blend as well.

Mary said...

I love her stones on her spindles, so gorgeous! But I'd have to say my favorite is the Italian Resin Irridescent Leaf Pattern Top Whorl Drop Spindle. I'm a sucker for anything foliage patterned :)

idyll hands said...

Instantly I fell in love with this spindle: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19495127

Although, I'm not using a drop spindle much anymore so it's silly for me to fall in love with them :) All of her fiber is gorgeous, but this one is my favorite: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22122470

So lovely!

sunnie fairy said...

I love their banner! It looks so cool. :]

NoviceKnitter said...

I'm absolutely in love with her MAMMA Green Aventurine Stone Top Whorl Drop Spindle With Carved Hardwood Shaft, but every one of her spindles is just drool-worthy.

LilChickadee said...

WOW. I cannot believe I hadn't ever heard of her shop before! It is amazing!

I really like the looks of "The Best of Everything" 80/20 merino & silk top roving. The colors are so pretty! I've never tried spinning silk/silk blends before, but I may have to give this one a shot. :)

Rachel O said...

Hard choice indeed. The prize looks beautiful.

I think (since I've never tried spinning) I'd have to say the overdyed painted yarn is my favorite, but if I win, I promise to give spinning a whirl!

Stacy said...

Oh gosh, I cannot pick just one thing. Everything is just so stunning! I would love to have MAMMA Green Aventurine Stone Top Whorl Drop Spindle With Carved Hardwood Shaft & the LUSH silk roving.

So many lovely things! But what is most beautiful is the best of everything handpainted merino/silk. Gorgeous!

So beautiful. I like the Best of Everything or the Hot Poppies.

I love everything, it's hard to pick just one thing. The fiber is all gorgeous, but I fell in love with the Malachite Stone spindle. So pretty!

DaniDo Crafty said...

I adore the Persephone merino/silk roving she has in her shop right now. Of course her spindles are to die for as well! If I hadn't just spent every spare dime I have on a new wheel I would be picking up one of these great spindles for on the go spinning. (I think I can spring for some roving though...)

Carla said...

So many pretty things. I think I like the malachite spindle best but I'd love some silk (especially the mermaid)


When I win (note the optimism) I can be reached via my hotmail account login popofra

and thanks for hosting all the fun give-aways

Dawn said...

I was lucky enough to get a sample of your silk roving in the March box and it was ABSOLUTELY my favorite! It was absolutely to die for! It has since become a lovely fine single that I'm not sure whether I want to ply or not. I have been wanting to buy a pretty spindle and was planning on buying one from you next month :) If I have to pick a favorite thing in your shop, I'd have to pick this silk roving:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22223032

It is the closest to what I received in the sampler box, which I would buy mountains of if I could.

MarieAngel said...

I love the color blend of the Full Circle skein. It's gorgeous!

Cindy said...

I love both Persephone and Brianna. It really is hard to decide.

Knitmomma said...

I love this shop!!! I think my favorite right now is the Red Brazillian Agate Stone Top Whorl Drop Spindle with Gold Filled Hook at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_1&listing_id=18984616

Savannah said...

I've just started learning to spin and her shop makes me wish I was an expert this instant, what with all the pretty fibers. But I think that at this moment I am most in love with the Red Brazillian Agate Stone Top Whorl Drop Spindle with Gold Filled Hook.

Kristen said...

I love the Red Brazillian Agate Stone Top Whorl Drop Spindle with Gold Filled Hook. The way the light shines through it in the photo is just lovely!

I like the Full Circle Wool Overdyed Painted yarn Spectra series. I would love to win this one because then I could order a fiber box instead of a yarn only box!

Jags said...

oooooh! *drools*

I've been eyeing those spindles since I started spinning!

If I had to pick a fave right now it would be the zebra jasper, it is really unique and I love it!
I'm thinking I've seen some olapite ones in the past that were really stunning too!

please pick me!

mjknits said...

Lots and lots of lovelies..but I want to take a dive into the "warm rain" silk/camel top. What a beautiful colorway and this stuff is almost too decadent to spin..ahhhhh.

Carissa said...

Oooh. I really like the PERSEPHONE roving. All her silk blend spinning fibers look fabulous.

Natalie said...

I adore the handpainted silks, especially the one in otter cliff. It makes me want to spin it into lace weight and knit a shawl for myself...

Nightphoenix said...

I'm in love with this split drop spindle (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22222314) To me it represents both the joy and frustration I have with spinning. I'm new to the spinning world and have mostly just borrowed spindles from friends. There's a lot of balance involved and so this duality in the stone just represents it so well.
I'm Lizbert on Ravelry.

Angie said...

ONE thing? Are you freaking kidding?!! There is not one single thing on this site that I would not flip over (and I can be very picky!). If I had to pick one, that Brazilian agate spindle is calling me... or maybe the Malachite one... or some of that silk.... see what I mean?!

Little Miss S. said...

Handpainted is almost always gorgeous to look at - but have an extra look at the silk/camel A WARM RAIN colourways... Uhmmm, beautiful...

Marilla said...

Beautiful! I received a sample of fiber in my box and it is absolutely stunning. I like the End of the Tunnel colorway-the colors are great and the fiber sounds like it would be yummy to spin

helenlam said...

I'm really liking the Twisted Grapevine hand painted silk roving. Lovely, intense colors!

The Mully's said...

Tres Chic! I love those colors! I checked out her store... LOVELY! I htink I'll just take one of everything! (ok, I'll cut back.. one spindle and all the fibers!)
FAB!

mlanezoo said...

WOW! What beautiful spindles and fiber!! Hard to choose, but I love anything made out of Jasper - and the Persephone colorway really speaks to me.

Sharon Rose said...

Oh my goodness... that Persephone merino / silk fiber is incredible... YUM! Thanks for the opportunity to drool!

Anita said...

Hard to pick just one... The Ocean Blossom fiber is gorgeous!! And I received a sample silk in my March box, it's heavenly! :)

Yarndemon

Mara said...

I want one of everything! I really like the Persephone 50/50 merino silk. Luscious!

Lacemoth said...

Just about any of the rovings would be nice. The spindles are beautiful - I like the turned shafts...

ZombieCat said...

I was so disappointed that I didn't get one of her fiber samples. My husband bought me this spindle for my birthday.
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22316512

I really hope it shows up before my birthday on Monday. It's my first really nice spindle, so I'm pretty excited!

alittleweirdo said...

I've been thinking about learning how to spin, and these drop spindles seem like extra motivation! Hard to pick just one favorite, but I really like the Green Aventurine Stone Top Whorl Drop Spindle. Plus it coordinates with the Mermaid Hand Painted Mulberry Silk Roving which is just beautiful :)

Lydia said...

I want some more of that gorgeous silk roving I got as a sample this month. It is beyond decadent.

Blogged as well. :)

Wow!! It is all I can say. I was lucky enough to get a sample of silk in my March box and it is lovely. I really liked the Malachite Stone bottom whorl spindle and the Red Brazilian Agate top whorl spindle. I also love the Persephane roving, which is a blend of superwash merino and silk. I also like the Ocean Blosson and Briana colorways. Also, did I mention mother of pearl and shell glitter spindle. I love sparklies...

wenat said...

Holy cow, what's not to like? Gorgeous spindles, fibre that looks so soft on the screen, and colours to brighten up any day.

Marinella said...

I don't know whether your giveaway draws are meant for people outside the US as well... in any case, I LOVE the Mysterons Hand Painted Silk Roving!

Not to mention all the beautiful whorls! I only have a bottom whorl, but those top whorls make me want to try and get one :D

(In ravelry I go by knittitude)

Brianna said...

I can't just pick one favorite! I know the "Mysterons" silk roving popped out at me immediately...

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22223032

Who could not fall in love with those colors? So jewel-toned and shiny.

I wish I had been one of the fortunate ones who had received one of her samples. I may just have to break down and buy the Mysterons fiber.

pixiefashions said...

Wow. I think everything in that shop is my new favorite. The spindles are gorgeous. If I have to choose a favorite I think the hand painted silk "Grapevine" would be it. It looks so shinny and luscious. I will be posting about this on my blog

FIBERS OF GRACE said...

I am new to the Phat group but I love spinning tiny amounts, combining them into art yarns. I do this naturally. I am hoping my post here will let me apply to win that wonderful stone spindle. I LOVE spindles. I have made my own but would love a professional one. In fact, this is the truth, My hubby broke my favorite spindle as He crunched it in our car as we drove home from the dr today. Last week I broke my other spindle. Now I am spindleless! I would also like to know if you ever carry color request boxes For instance, I have a fiber friend and she and I trade certain colors only. So would it be possible to get a Plum Box? I think this is all quite exciting, like Christmas whatever day the package arrives!
many thanks for letting me post. I am Halalsilks on Ravelry, See my spinning videos at www.youtube.com/halalsilks and look under the titles of Knit Help and Fiber Joys for hundreds of great videos My other fiber blog is http://halalsilks.blogspot.com and my other spinning blog to help those in pain to see that spinning helps manage pain as I learned, is http://spin2stoppain.blogspot.com THANKS, Grace in Vermont

I'm lucky enough to have two of her gorgeous spindles but her fiber is JUST as wonderful. My two favs in the shop right now are the AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL SW Merino / Cashmere and the Hot Poppies Silk. If only the budget would allow it right now...

dragonmaille said...

Okay, I had decided that I didn't really like bottom whorl spindles, but I may have to rethink that decision. Both the malachite (I LOVE malachite--and a spindle with it?!) and the green zebra jasper (the stone is awesome, and I adore square spindles) are tempting me oh so much. Especially since I'm taking a workshop on spindling tips and tricks soon.....
