WC Mercantile Milk Giveaway!





Now I will commence to astound and amaze you with WCMercantile's August offerings!
Can you even believe how incredibly gorgeous these samples are? Stephanie created the little boxes and dyed the milk the most beautiful strawberry-peach smoothie color I've ever seen.
I was completely blown away!

I am also blown away when I visit WCMercantile on Etsy. Visiting her shop is like getting a favorite catalog in the mail. You keep visiting, keep turning pages, keep thinking about all the beautiful things you could make with the materials Stephanie offers.

I feel truly honored to be giving away 4 oz of dyed milk fiber from WCMercantile! Just visit the shop, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner on Friday!
Be sure and use your social networking skills to net extra entries! If you tweet, plurk, facebook, ravelate or blog about this giveaway and let us know you did, we'll add your name to the pot again!

Stephanie
, you rock! That is all.

Wow! What a great selection of fiber!! It was really hard to decide on one item but I really love the bright sunny yellow 2 oz Dyed Yearling Mohair Rovings - FARM FRESH.

I have recently drooled over her stuff, and am currently coveting the yellow Corredale and want to try dying my own silk hankies.

I can't resist a Mystery Bag!!! RTed @millarca

Jude said...

I love Steph's fibers and her great service, and the fact that you can get solid colors. Today is a *rainbow* day, the Rainbow Yearling Mohair Roving looks cheerful and yummy!

Vanessa said...

I love the Corriedale top in Sea Foam.

Cathy said...

pages and pages of choices! How can I pick just one? 2 oz Dyed Yearling Mohair Rovings in the blue/grey or the red/blue combo would be my choices if I am forced to choose

DENISE said...

I think the mystery packs would be quite fun.

Marimba's Notes said...

Wow, her milk fiber is amazing but her dyed merino solids also look incredible. The look super light and not compacted at all--like they would be wonderful to spin! I would love to ply a couple of colors together just to see how they come out. The best part of her shop--she's from Navasota which is the tiny town in Texas where my Mom was born (and I live about 90 miles from there now).

FunkyFiberFarm said...

I, of course, LOVE the prices! But I would also LOVE to spin up that soft and fluffy yearling mohair!!!

Rachel Suntop said...

I've ordered from WC Mercantile probably about 1/2 dozen times and her stuff is always great quality and she's fast and reliable. I also love the free shipping. Also tweeted.

Angele said...

I've also ordered from WC Mercantile and love the service. The Strawberry BFL looks super to spin! You have lots of great stuff

Autumn said...

Wow great shop! Chartreuse Truce and Golden Yellow are beyonde amazing. The metallic fibers are nifty as well.

heather said...

all of the corriedale looks beautiful!

veggiecath said...

I love this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29551353. It's such a great color!<3

trh said...

I love this shop! I spent my spring contest winnings here - the prices are really great! I have 4 ounces of her yearling mohair that I haven't been brave enough to try to spin yet, but as soon as I figure out that I can do it, I'm getting some of her dyed mohair. And I would love to have her botanical dying kit - might just have to gift myself with that . . .

JuliaA said...

i love the merino top in midnight. such gorgeous rich colors!

HAY said...

I love the "Straw Berry" BFL & the 3oz. mystery roving bag. What a great shop!

Kristen said...

Love the Sky Blue Merino Top. So vivid!

KT said...

I just finished spinning (yes, me!) one of the 3oz Mystery bags - and I loved it. Just about every day I go to the WCM etsy shop and drool over their stuff. I may be purchasing more of those mystery bags, since they were so much fun to spin up! I have one skein of blues/purples/pinks and one of yellows/reds/tans/creams...

I also love the indie dyed milk, and the Wensleydale makes me giggle irrationally (I'm a Wallace & Gromit fan). I may have to get some of that to make something for my husband!

RT'ed on Twitter @knitwithkt!

Anna B said...

I love EVERYTHING in this shop! I love the all the colors... if only I could just buy out the whole shop... lol

Alisa said...

This is EASY! The Majacraft Millie! (:

sunnie fairy said...

oh, me, me, me! I've always wanted to try her organic cotton sampler.

Jessica said...

Oh, it's all so pretty. I like the verigated colors like the Bluejeans and the Deep sea and the Muscadine grape. Also linked you on Twitter and facebook.

Maeghan said...

MMMmmmm...the soft white pure cashmere. Just so heavenly and soft looking!

dinahsaurus said...

I think the mohair roving is very pretty, but the lure of the Mystery Bag really tempts me!

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

Love Love Love the 2 oz Baby Camel Down and Tussah Silk Top - looks sooo fun and soft!

Kim said...

Definitely the mystery bag :)

This store is awesome!

Jane said...

Mmmm - it's all so yummy. I love the Indie Dyed Roving. I'm just learning to spin and I can tell I will be visiting this shop often!

Aurita said...

I absolutely love the 4 oz of merino and tussah silk white, you can see how shinny it is and it would look great dyed. I also love the camel down with the tussah silk, 2 oz, it looks yummy

Jane said...

I posted the contest on my blog an on my facebook page.

Cozy Knitting said...

Gosh! This stuff is amazing! How does one choose? And then there are dyes, felting stuff, spinning wheels, luxury fibers,......... It's truly amazing!

Robin said...

I got to meet Stephanie's goats! I'm currently making a hat for a soldier from my homespun alpaca/merino blend yarn made from roving from The Mercantile. It's luscious!

Nightphoenix said...

The teal tartan corriedale wool top is just such a lovely color! I had to pick it as my favorite.

Carlin said...

The Dark Garnet Merino Top is amazing.

And the popcorn boxes as fiber containers is a great idea!

NStreicher said...

Oh my, you are so right about her site. All the fiber looks so beautiful, I just want to touch all of it! I'm particularly drawn to the masculine colorways of Delta River Run and Cooperwood. Yum.

brownbear said...

Wow. There is so much. I love all that merino top, especially the color fenberry grove.

burnt rain said...

hmmm! I love the dove merino wool top! it's lovely..

K said...

The strawberry-peach smoothing milk fiber shown in the blog post is my very favorite.

Linda D said...

4 oz. Merino Tencel Top - Deep Sea -- that color blend just calls to me!

rebelhousewife said...

So much fiber, and the wheels. I really like the midnight color way in the merino top.

Turtle said...

yearly mohair merino farm raised roving....yum! whata great selection and variety!! nice!

kayaknits said...

How to choose... To spin some cashmere and merino or to dye silk cap. How about both.

Erytanthes said...

I WANT THIS SO BADLY! Seriously, it's like a fiber drought on my front. I haven't touched anything soft and cushy and spinnable for months!

The Mercantile has so many beautiful shades of blue, but Marina is definitely the one that pulled me in the most!

Count me down for

Please, oh please, oh please!

Jags said...

I got one of those samples and it is AMAZING! It also matches a sample I got last month perfectly so I'm going to be plying them I think!

I really want that 3 oz Mystery Bag of Rovings, Tops, and Batts in different Fibers! It looks like so muc fun to play with!

Max. H said...

I cannot stop looking at 4 oz. Indie Dyed Milk Fiber Top in blue and brown! It would be a DREAM to spin!

mtlaise said...

Oh, that Deep Sea merino-tencel top is to die for! Thanks for thelink to another great shop.

Campbell said...

The felting wool artist samplers, of course! But if I were being practical, I would have to say the needles pack! Beautiful fibers-and I'm facebooking!!

Hazy horizon is gorgeous!

Paula said...

I've been wanting to try milk fiber, but was completely distracted by the Farm Fresh Mohair roving. It would have to be the rainbow version so I wouldn't be forced to pick only one gorgeous color.

alittleweirdo said...

Lots of nice fiber! I especially like the Shamrock Wensleydale Wool Roving :)

redzshadow said...

I am loving the Indie Dyed Milk Fiber both what is shown above and the blue/red/purple shown on her site.

zot said...

While I would usually be drawn to the colorful rovings, I'm kind of digging the felting needles. Mm, the possibilities...

klina-kloen said...

I love the silver-grey alpaca!
Too bad other countries than the US and Canada aren't listed...

HanamiGallery said...

Ive never tried spinning milk protein ,but would love to try! My favorite from her shop is the indie dyed milk fiber top - I really love the color!

elendir said...

Lots of lovely fiber but I most like the 4 oz. Merino Top Copperwood, makes me think of looking for chestnuts in the woods

Jan L said...

There's SO MUCH in this shop that I really want. I'm going to put one of their gift certificates on my Christmas wish list. The bigger, the better.

Carmela said...

I love the Deep Sea Merino Tencel Top. It is so appropriately named, and just luscious. I can almost see a ship tossing about on stormy waves with just enough sunlight to add touches of light. Gorgeous! I think I am going to buy it now.

beesybeefiber said...

I've ordered before from WC Mercantile and I love her fiber. I probably come back for more merino mohair.

That soft purple "farm fresh" mohair is delicious... but I'm dying to try the milk fiber! Thanks for a chance to win!

Rebekah said...

Love the merino/tussah silk in Muscadine grape!

Myra/prairiecomforts said...

I have been drooling over all the beautiful things on their website - but I have to wait until after payday to order anything! Actually put it on the calendar as WC day. When hubby asked "Do I even want to know what that is for?" I just laughed! Marking off the days!

wenchamok said...

Oooh! That gold/green/orange roving! *makes grabby hands* And the blue and red one is my college colors!

I would love playing with the Earthues Botanical Dye Kit and 1 pound of Merino Wool. I've never worked with botanical dyes, I've been using food coloring.

One Sheep said...

I just love the subtle variations in the 4 oz. Merino Top Copperwood roving. What a beautiful colorway.

tracethekat said...

I love the midnight merino top! Beautiful stuff!

lemur said...

I may be allergic to the milk that you drink, but here's a way to have my milk without the side effects!

Love the blue, red, purple milk fiber, as well as the mystery bag of rovings.

Heather said...

Oooooo! My favorite is the Schacht Ladybug wheel. It's adorable!

dixiemaiden said...

I can't choose I item! I would love to try spinning merino or silk, or both combined.

Ann Ryan said...

Boy, it's hard to pick a favorite! I really like the 'boliver' BFL. I've been wanting to try that!

Oh dear, I'm just a sucker for mystery bags! I also love the spinning wheels. So tempted.
