Tactile Sock Yarn Giveaway!





Tactile Fiber Arts
has again, sent in the most amazing samples for the July box! Bundles of naturally dyed tussah silk and gorgeously saturated cotton yarn are jewels in this month's box!

Tactile is celebrating the summer of the sock! The array of sock yarn Tactile has on their site is amazing! I am especially in love with merino/tencel blends lately! They are just so shiny and scrummy!

We're giving away a full skein of Tactile superwash merino, bamboo and nylon sock yarn! It's 434 yards of squooshy strawberry deliciousness! Just visit Tactile Fiber Arts, and let us know what your favorite Tactile Fiber Arts yarn or fiber is! We'll draw for a winner on Saturday, and remember, if you twitter, facebook, ravelate, blog or plurk about this giveaway, you'll be entered twice!

Thank you Maia and MissBabs! We can't get enough of Tactile!

Very pretty! I love the creme brule color! I also love that she uses natural dyes. I've never tried tussah silk, but I hear its pretty nice! (I swear I have the most redneck accent in my mind when I type!)

Turtle said...

skaro964 said...

Heliotrope alpaca has some gorgeous gradients in it.

TNTknits said...

Everything they have is gorgeous, but I'm really intrigued by the Camel Survey fiber sampler. Baby camel and tussah? Sounds divine.

Too many choices!!!!
I love the Thunderstorm handspun and Berries and Cream Sincere Sheep and Flame!

Buckette said...

It is really amazing what Tactile can do with natural dyes. My pic is the Merino Top in the Heliotrope colorway. I am hoping to see them at Lambtown in Dixon this year!

Sally said...

I really like the Sincere Sheep Fiber in Calendula. It is pretty neat that all of her things are naturally dyed and the Sincere Sheep Fiber (and yarn) is from local sheep.

Kim Stone said...

Really?!? Did I need to go to Tactile's website? Since joining the Phat Fiber folks my wallet has been screaming in agony! I love, love, love the camel/silk fiber. It will have to wait until next month though. The budget have been totally blown out.

I have to say I love your yak-tussah aeolian in pomegranate. It is gorgeous.

I love the carnation silk lace weight. All the yarns are beautiful, and I can see spending a lot of money at the site.

SpringSplndr said...

The Plum Alpaca Merino Worsted Weight caught my eye! I love those purples!

sciteacher said...

I practically got lost in the on-line store for an hour, gazing at all the lovely things. Each page was as fascinating as the last, but the Organic Cotton Worsted Weight Yarn in Seafoam is my favorite item there.

Kristen said...

I love the Amber colorway of the laceweight yarn. lovely!

Strike My Fancy said...

Angele said...

I love it all! I want it all!! Everything is so Gorgeous!

Sharon said...

I love the Merino-Tencel and the Merino-Bamboo. They both look so lovely and with that bit of shine. The colors? Mushroom, Ginko and Lichen. Gorgeous. ~sigh~

Birdsong said...

Naturally dyed eh? Of course I want some and will FB your contest right away!

KT said...

So much to love from Tactile - like the organic cotton (I got some in my box, and it's fab!) and the samplers. I'm very tempted by the camelids sampler... I also love the carbonized bamboo and the "Kelp" colorway of merino/silk worsted yarn... As I said, so much to love!

Also, I tweeted! (Knitwithkt)

Anna B said...

I love the Indigo - Baby Camel-Tussah Silk Top. Very pretty! I love that these are naturally dyed! So pretty!

Camo said...

I'm a sock junkie and sock yarn has a phenomenal place in my heart and now my goal in life is to try Yak sock yarn! The Brown Yak-Merino 50-50 Top in Lichen is absolutely amazing!

PogKnits said...

I've browsed Tactile's shop before and everything is so beautiful it's hard to choose a fave. But today, the Dogwood alpaca/merino worsted caught my eye.

craftygal86 said...

I love the Coral Linen! Pretty pretty!

osmia said...

I love the amount of credit / links they have for what / whoever they are talking about on each page of their site. The tempting, tickle my fancy, reach out and grab me, product of theirs, is the "Learn to Spin Kit"

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

Just one look at the Birch - Alpaca-Merino Worsted Weight Yarn and I was a goner.

I've posted to my blog

DG said...

I want it ALL, but especially love anything in the Carnation colorway. It's fascinating to see how the color changes from yarn to yarn.

Brat said...

Oh, I just love "Flame" in the Superwash BFL. So spicy and warm.

MyaStone said...

This was hard to choose. I love the orange colorways: flame, tangerine and marigold. The linen-merino blend (bark) in sport weight looks interesting to knit with.

jennifer said...

Love the Marigold Angora/Merino. Pretty!

wenchamok said...

Mmm...that Flame colorway is so lovely!

Jen

Luci said...

I love anything in the Pomegranite color, but I actually plunked money down for the merino-silk lace weight at Stitches. And now I spin and lust after their fiber as well as the sock yarn.

One Sheep said...

I just think this Sorrel - Superwash Merino Sport Weight Yarn is such an elegant colorway.

Silverstah said...

Oh, the Ancient Breeds Sampler is lovely - what a great way to try all those fibers!

Silverstah said...

Knitmomma said...

These are so beautiful! I had a tough time narrowing it to one favorite, but tonight I choose
Concord Grape - Baby Camel Top. I love the subtle variations!

Sara said...

Oh how I love all of it!

I must have the Sky Alpaca Lace Weight, and the Tangerine Tussah Lace Weight...soo pretty!

I don't know how to spin, but I kind of feel that I must also purchase a spinning wheel through them....

Ashley said...

The dew merino silk top is drool worthy...heck all the silk stuff is. I could do a lot of damage there!

Max. H said...

The Blue Spruce Merino-Silk Top is my favorite! The colors, and the sheen are both just perfect!

rebelhousewife said...

I can just imagine how soft and squishy it is!

lime juice said...

give me any (or all) of the superwash bamboo sock yarn please!! yummy!

ikkinlala said...

I adore the Indigo - Organic Merino Sport Weight Yarn, but there are so many choices!

PenelopeRose said...

Oooh, any one of the camel fibers would make my knees buckle. Great shop and great giveaway!

helenlam said...

The pomegranate baby camel top is absolutely lovely...

Ann-Marie said...

I haven't spun any of Tactile's product--but the Camelid sampler sounds really interesting to me!
:)

mamakin said...

I'm loving the spindles & SPINNING WHEELS, as well as the Indigo and the Sorrel superwash merino bamboo sock yarns. Yummy!
I've plurked, twittered, blogged, and it's on my FB.

Bejeweled said...

Oh, the alpaca lace in any color!! The Kelp silk yarn is very lovely too!

treehugger said...

I really like the fiber samplers. You get 1 oz of several different fibers to try out; in total, you still get 3-5 oz. of fiber (enough to make a fun yarn), AND you get to play with new/interesting stuff! My favorite is the ancient breeds sampler. I like the idea of spinning fiber from ancient breeds of sheep. You get 1 oz. each of Finn, Gotland, Icelandic, Norwegian, and Shetland. In keeping with this month's theme, i also like the Camelid sampler ;).

Cozy Knitting said...

How can one choose from this selection? I think I would like to tell people I knit these socks from yak fiber. That would be pretty cool. I also like the idea of supporting local farmers.

alittleweirdo said...

Looks like lots of fun stuff! The Handspun Blue Faced Leicester with Silk looks like fun :)

BeckyS said...

Holy Smokes!! What a shop! I would have a really hard time picking something from this shop because there is just so much to choose from. LOL I did instantly fall in love with the Indigo Baby Camel-Tussah Silk Top. The color is perfect for me!

BeckyS said...

Oh.. forgot.. this shop is definitely a MUST for Twitter..
