Mad Angel Creations and *Giveaway*




Fiber artist Paula Warner, of Mad Angel Creations sent in both hand dyed yarn and silk top in for the March box. Everything in her shop is so deep and rich and gorgeous! At her price points, it would be easy to clear out her shop! I can't decide which I like better, the camel or cashmere blends or deeply dyed tops she has available!
Paula has recently devoted her full attention to growing her fiber business! Expect a quality product and excellent customer service while shopping with her.
As a special treat for you all, we're giving away one of Mad Angel Creations skein of DK weight wool dyed in her "peacock" colorway, complete with scarab beetle stitch marker! It is really beautiful! Please visit Mad Angel Creations and find something you like, post about it below here and we'll draw for a name on Friday. Remember I always count your extra social networking efforts as entries for you, so help get the word out about Paula's shop!
Thank you so much, Paula for your beautiful samples in March, we look forward to your next contributions!

I am a lace girl and I had a hard time going between the red and the blue, but finally settled on the blue being my fav. So I choose Hand-dyed Wool-Cashmere Laceweight Yarn - Dusky Blues as my favorite! Mainly because I love the very thought of Cashmere! Great shop, will be back to this one.
