Desired Haven Farm Giveaway!




Misty of Desired Haven Farm, has sent in this ginormous roving for a giveaway!
I got to thinking about all of her past samples and how generous they have been.
I think the drop spindle she uses in her photos is a much larger spindle than we are all used to seeing! The drop spindle in the photos seem to dwarf the generous skeins of handspun and huge amounts of roving. I took a picture of her 4oz giveaway with my coffee mug for comparison.
See? Isn't it huge?!
The giveaway roving is called "Maddy Potpourri" and I just love all of the colors in between the natural stormy colors of the wool.
Please visit Desired Haven Farm's shop, find something you like, and post about it in the comments section below. We're drawing for a winner tomorrow! Remember to use Facebook, twitter, plurk etc to get the word out about Misty's shop. I'll count them as extra entries if you let me know you've done it!
Thank you so much, Misty for sharing your art with us! We appreciate you!

punkin said...

The slate blue fiber is beautiful. What caught my eye, though, is the waste-not-want-not fiber. I like the idea of it.

idyll hands said...

I am just so in love with the White English Angora Fiber! The bunny is sooo cute & the fiber would add a touch of luxury to anything it is blended with!

I like the "waste not want not 2 thrum roving". I like that it's made of leftovers and the color is so pretty.

brownbear said...

I want her angora rabbit. But I would settle for some fiber or handspun from him. :)

Infinitespirals said...

The jade green alpaca/wool is gorgeous and LOOK AT THE WEIGHT ON IT! OMG what a deal.

fittzwm said...

Charlotte said...

Perhaps because I have 2 large Lavender plants on my front porch, waiting to be planted that I am attracted to the Lavender Alpaca Wool blend. Quite a color change for me.

One Sheep said...

The Raspberry Twilight handspun is my choice.

Elizabeth said...

Waste Not Want Not, definitely! I love thrummed rovings and this one has been on my wish list for ages.

Minou14 said...

Pebbles in the Stream looks scrumptious! Misty is such a sweet woman and I've coveted her samples that I've seen in other boxes. I haven't been lucky enough to get one myself. I do however have fleeces from two of her sheep and they are wonderful. I love that she does everything from sheep to finished yarn. It really adds a personal touch and makes her shop special.

Turtle said...

one hundred percent handspun angora rabbit...... le sigh! Looks super soft and gorgeous! (there was a cool jade green fiber too!)

Knitmomma said...

Alpaca Wool Deep Lavendar - although the bunny fiber is very appealing!

I saw several yarn and roving colors that I really liked, but I may have to go back later this afternoon and buy some of the Derby Batts. They were the Samples in August and are wonderful.
