Extreme Spinning Silk Giveaway!




Extreme Spinning, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
Firstly, there are SO many fibers to choose from. Want organic merino? How about silk, milk, romney, bamboo, viscose? CJ spends a great deal of time researching where to purchase her raw materials from. She buys organic and cruelty free (yes, some fiber farms can be cruel!) fiber and dyes. She can probably pinpoint a micron count by a just a quick squeeze of fiber.

I love Extreme Spinning's prices. I feel like I really get my money's worth when I go spend $30-$40 there. And indubetibly, CJ will include a small sampling of another fiber with your order.

Now if you prefer hyena cart, CJ's extreme fibers can be found in her spindies shop!

I think what sets Extreme Spinning apart from other shops, is the level of customer service she offers. She is always willing to offer up her knowledge to anyone who is interested and has many times answered some silly question of mine. Thank you for that CJ!

I am truly tickled to be giving away 2.2 oz of the most amazing Mulberry Silk dyed by Extreme Spinning. It is unlike other silks you've experienced- while some silks will snag on absolutely everything, this is so creamy and smooth, it is really the "Cadillac Silk". I will be drawing for a winner on Monday, so you have all weekend to oogle Extreme Spinning and mark your favorites. Tell us about your favs in the comments section below. Remember, I'll always count your extra tweeting and plurking and facebooking as extra entries! Just let me know you did it and make sure I have a way of finding you, should you win!

Thank you for being awesome, CJ!

Extreme Spinning always has the most beautiful things and I always makes sure to spend some ogle time in the shop. Right now, the wool free batts on the Spindie site have really caught my eye.

Wow I love her shop there are so many things I want but I think I really need this Mulberry Silk Top 2 oz in Green Yellow Blue. So pretty and I love silk :)

Sally said...

I agree about CJ's customer service. I placed an order from her, and was really impressed with the care and detail she put into it! As she was packing the order, she noticed that two of the batts I ordered didn't match (and they were supposed to...) so instead of ignoring it, she got in touch with me and worked out a solution! It was awesome.

As for what I like in her shop right now... I love the royalty roving. That shade of purple is amazing.

I have been so impressed with CJ in every interaction I've had with her. The India mulberry silk I bought from her is simply gorgeous, and I'm so in love with her for developing wool-free spinning batts!

Right now I love the silvery vegan spinning batt the most, but I'm really excited to see what else she comes up with on that line!

About a month ago I learned to use a drop spindle. After that, I have been on the search for things to spin. I appreciate you blogging about the different things out there. As of your blog, I discovered Extreme Spinning and am thrilled with the variety of spinning fibers offered. My favorite right now is the Violets in Blue Milk Silk top and the Peach Viscose. I just had to buy them. LOL
