H.A.Y. Hampton Artistic Yarns and Giveaway




The heat index here is predicted to hover around 110 degrees!! I thought I would feature some really beautiful and cooling blue from a favorite phat fiber artisan, Deb Johnson of Hampton Artistic Yarns.
Deb's shop is so gorgeous! I am quite in love with her spinning buns. She sent in some for June's Oceanic them and they were so incredibly beautiful, sparkling like glistening seashells! See, you're feeling cooler already! Take a dip into Deb's beautiful Mermaid spinning buns, cooling milk fiber, deep turquoise, and purple mermaid fins- just beautiful!
Of course, for those of you who would prefer to knit or crochet poolside (or in my case coping indoors with a tall glass of iced tea) Deb offers some truly incredible handspun yarns and gorgeous kettle dyed sock weight.
Which brings us to our next amazing giveaway!! Deb has sent in this Caribbean Dream sock yarn for a lucky commenter! Just visit Hampton Artistic Yarns and find something you like! Post about it in the comments section below and we'll draw for a winner on Monday! Please help get the word out about Deb's beautiful shop by plurking, tweeting and facebooking (grin) about her! I will count those as extra entries, please make sure you say you did it!

Deb, we love your shop (and you!) so much! You're a tremendous asset to the group!

I absolutely love the Superwash Merino - Summer Day in Erie. (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25332345) I went to summer camp on Lake Erie when I was a child, and oh how I loved it - these colors bring back memories, and NEED to be spun up for socks, I can tell! :)

This is too funny! I was just over there stalking her milk protein fiber sampler yesterday, debating if I would have enough time to incorporate them into my July samples! Love them! I am also drooling over the Plum Crazy colorway, the Juicy colorway, the Serenity sock yarn, and any of the corriedale pencil roving (I LOVE corriedale) Great shop!

Her hand dyed silk cocoons are beautiful. The colors are so vivid. I also love the kettle dyed superwash sock yarn in the Serenity colorway. Just lovely.

Her little sheep mascot is cute too. I wonder what his/her name is??

Nightphoenix said...

I think the fact that she sells actual silk cocoons is awesome! But I really like the sock yarn Rosie. The colors in Serenity really jump out at me, but I feel that Rosie will knit up beautifully.
