PFI: Sheepshape Spinning and *Giveaway*
Did any of you receive some special glow in the dark handspun yarn in your April box?!
Yes, I said Glow in the Dark!!! Elizabeth, from Sheepshape Spinning has come up with a genius way of spinning glow in the dark material into a lovely handspun that would be great for making kids hats or funky leggings.
Sheepshape Spinning is based out of London, UK but happily ships internationally, so don't be afraid to convo her about ordering some of her wonderful goods! For April, Elizabeth sent in a wonderful variety of items, from handspun to roving to finished objects- who got the adorable little pocket sheep?! Elizabeth also included a feedback form with her samples- let her know what you think of her stuff!
I love the variety of fiber she uses in her yarns and am especially excited about the little knit animal kits she offers- what a clever and unique gift that would make to a new Mom!
Elizabeth sent in a gorgeous skein of handspun alpaca and blue faced leicester 2-ply worsted-bulky weight for a giveaway! This yarn is so sqooshy and yummy, I really cant get over it! The colors range from lilacs to periwinkles and sky blues. So lovely!
Please visit Sheepshape Spinning and find something you like in her shop. Write about it in the comments section below here and you will be entered to win in the drawing to be held on Friday. Please help get the word out about this wonderful shop by using twitter, facebook, ravelry or your own blog- let me know you did that and I will count you extra in for the giveaway!
Thank you so much Elizabeth, for your contributions to Phat Fiber and for being so awesome! We look forward to more Sheepshape samples in the future!
