Fiber Fancy and Giveaway!



I simply cannot wait until you get the Fiber Fancy July samples! They are the most perfectly packed rainbow assortment of mohair!

Diana is a true friend of color. You can find really beautiful jewel toned locks, gorgeous handspun, and more recently the most fluffy and scrumptious looking batts I've seen in a while!

Take a look at the beautiful mohair braid in her "Tutti Frutti" colorway we are giving away! It is so soft, so satiny, and the colors just pop. I love that it is already a braid- sometimes new spinners can be intimidated by mohair locks (Don't be! They are fun!) and this a very familiar form.

Would you like this 4 oz yearling mohair braid from Fiber Fancy? Just visit Diana's shop, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We will draw for names on Saturday so go ahead, take your time and pick a few favorites! Remember, we will count your twittering, plurking, facebooking (did I make that word up? lol) as extra entries! Just let me know you did it!

Diana, thank you so much for letting us sample your work. It is truly beautiful to behold and we love having you as a part of our group!

For some reason, the Cotwswold, Cotswold calls to me. The rainbow of colors makes it so eye pleasing. And I retweeted it as knitplaywithfir

I shopped at Fiber Fancy during my last shopping spree of fiber on Etsy and am sooooo glad I did. I had been crushing on a couple of roving braids for a while and finally bought them! However, it's quite easy to find some new faves as everything is so eye catching. I really love Ruckus merino roving. The colors look like a GREAT transition from summer to fall which I seem to be drawn to right now.

The hand dyed handspun in sea and sand is beautiful. I love fat singles and that colorway is gorgeous.

drgnldy said...

Stormy Skies does it for me. Looks like the skies here in Maine for the last month! It's the juxtaposition of purples and pinks, gets me every time...

Silverstah said...

Oooh! I'm on a mohair kick, and her stuff is BEAUTIFUL! If I had to pick just one, though, I'd come home with the 'Plums and Olives' mohair roving. SO lovely!

Rainbows! What beautiful rainbows! I loved the rainbow cotswold locks and the baby pastel rainbow roving, but I particularly liked the Earthy and Vibrant Rainbow roving that was reserved for someone else. I'm very jealous!

I bought a bunch of roving from Fiber Fancy to spin for Tour de Fleece. Her shipping was super fast and the product was beautiful. ANYWAY, my new favorites are the baby pastel rainbow roving and the dance party roving.

Oh wow. The violets batt and the peacock roving are to die for. I had already favorited some batts at Fiber Fancy that I found out about from the Ravelry shop update thread! I'm taking my first spinning lesson August 9, so I will be visiting FF SOON (although I've already got quite the fibre collection . . .)

I've tweeted as well.

Re: Diane's Fiber Fantasy Etsy Shop.
1st--Thank you so much for bringing these talented (and generous) artists to our attention.

2nd, I did go through her shop and bouught three things. I'm beginning to spin, I knit, and I needle felt (as well as knit & full/felt), so I got her lovely (1) handspun "Yarn in Berries and Creme Twist"; (2) her "Cotswold, Cotswold Locks, Hand Dyed, 2 ounces, Pastel Rainbow" with a note to her that I'd like to get a larger size with the other two colors not in that mix (for needle felting etc.); and (3) a 4 oz " Late Summer Harvest, Alpaca, Merino and More" batt. I really like her colorways and think the Cotswold locks are going to add a great POP! WoW# ZING** (think Batman in the 60s) to any of my needle felting or as an addition to my own batts. Thanks again for the introduction!

heather said...
