Silver Sun Alpacas *Giveaway*
Okay! This is it! You have no excuse now. You've got to learn to spin! It's 2009, the year you CAN do it. Ricky, from Silver Sun Alpacas has sent in a beautiful learn to spin drop spindle kit! It includes a spindle, simplified instructions, and some gorgeous fiber to play with. Yes, I said gorgeous fiber. Whomever told you that you needed to start learning with scratchy ugly roving, must think that you're interested in trying to make a smooth, commercial looking yarn. Though it is certainly excellent to learn how to draft and spin a very thin single (one twisted length of fiber), the lumpy and bumpy and chunky stuff is quite fashionable! There are some spinners who specialize in art yarn that is nothing but lumpy and bumpy!
Ricky has kits that start under $25 and you and I both know you've spent that much on junk food (you didn't need!) in the last month.
Silver Sun Alpacas sent in some beautiful fiber this month called "Daffodils". I am in love with this! As soon as I can take some time for me, I want to spin up my little sample- I'm pretty sure I'll have to order more. Seasonal spinning- gotta love it!
To win this drop spindle kit- all you need to do is visit the gorgeous Silver Sun Alpacas Shop and find something you like. Write a little about it in the comments section below here and you'll be entered in the drawing tomorrow. Remember to get your extra twittering, plurking, facebook updates and ravelry posts out there too- I'll count them as extra entries!
Thank you so much Ricky, for creating such amazing fibers and for being so awesome! We hope you'll continue to contribute to Phat Fiber!
