Oh what a FABULOUS giveaway! The shining star in my Phat Fiber box one month was this beautiful little batt from Silver Sun Alpacas! It was full of super soft fibers, light blue with whitees and some sparlking goodness too. It was so pretty all spun up I kept it for myself :) I have also bought one of their drop spindle kits, love my wheel but so nice to have a good quality drop spindle in my stash! Currently for sale in their shop is this delicious looking batt with deep rich colors and again... sparkling goodness! Check it out! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26101943

completely fabulous giveaway! wowee!

i really like the drop spindle kit. i have a friend who wants to learn to spin that has a birthday in august - would make a great gift!

rebelhousewife said...

Great stuff. I like the LAVENDER VANILLA - Alpaca and Wool Batt, for spinning or felting - 4 oz. best of all, gorgeous colors.

PenelopeRose said...

What a fantastic giveaway!! It was just too hard of a decision to pick one item. Everything has temptation written all over it. I still haven't tried milk fiber so I would choose that or anyone of her month clubs or one of those yummy batts. Yikes! Sensory overload!

Cathy said...

I love this store so much. I am breaking down and ordering today. I have drooled over the batts here for months. I honestly can't pick just one. Like Vercua Salt I WANT IT ALL!!!!

Can you tell I really want this one.

Rotem said...

I looooove Bora Bora!

Tip said...

I love the mysterious appeal of the mega bombshell spinning kit. I just taught myself how to spin from a book, and I bet that kit would be a great way to get a feel for different fibers. It's going on my wish list!

CindyD said...

I love all of the Silver Sun Batts. But the Child's play caught my eye!

HAY said...

I love Lavender Vanilla - beautiful soft colors :)

I just drooled all over the place looking at that shop. ;) Love the Midnight Orchid batt.

Cozy Knitting said...

I guess the winner so far is Lavender Orchid or Midnight Orchid. I love the colors of both. The Mexican Papaya is nice too.

Erytanthes said...

I can't pass this one up!
I really like Aladdin's Gemstone!

Count me down for:

Facebook

Blogging? I can't remember if that one counts or not.

I WANNA WIN! I haven't spun for months because I've been traveling, but I'm raring to get back to my spindles!

Knitmomma said...

I love her undyed fibers - they look lovely, and I would like to experiment more with dying. However, I think Purple Ocean is my favorite right now. Or maybe Purple Passion. I kinda like purple, can you tell?

TNTknits said...

I love this shop! I think the Mega Bombshell 1 lb box of fiber looks like so much fun. A little bit of everything. I'd love to try spinning some Cotswold curls.

Lycanthrophile said...

The Island Blue is beautiful.

Knittinguardie said...

I LOVEEEE the lavender-vanilla Alpaca/wool batt, it looks soooooooo soft, I really wanna pet it. I also want to buy one of her spindle kits, because the wool and alpaca that comes with them is gogeous (drools)but I'm making myself wait until I get taught how to spin ( It's gonna happen wednesday, hello new fiber addiction)

Quilting Pansy said...

I like both of these:
WINE AND CHOCOLATE - Spinning Batt - 4 oz.
CHAMBORD TRUFFLE - 4 oz. of Mohair, Wool Top of Spinning Fiber

Paula said...

It's all fiberlicious! I would most like the mega bombshell so I could play with lots of different fibers.
