Counting Sheep Farm Batt Giveaway!




Fiber Artist Rachel Peck has been very busy! In addition to being the mother of 8 children and running her shop: My8KidsMom she's opened another shop to support her growing flock of sheep! Counting Sheep Farm has loads of farm fresh goodness for you to peruse!

You should really try her Jacob fleece! It is an easy-to-spin wool with very interesting natural colors!

Help Rachel with her grand opening! She's giving away this beautiful 3.9 oz Firestar/Alpaca/Silk batt to a lucky commenter here! Visit Counting Sheep Farm, find something you like, and post about it in the comments section below this post! We'll draw for a winner on Saturday so don't wait to visit. Also, remember to let everyone else know about Counting Sheep Farm through twitter, facebook, plurk, Ravelry, your blog etc and we'll count those networking pings as extra entries- just let us know you did it!

Rachel, we're so honored to have your talent in our box!

I not only love the undyed mulberry silk, I just bought it!

I was just thinking this morning how online fleece and roving doesn't tempt me quite the way it used to. but I guess some things still do!

Thanks, Rachel

The Seaweed batt is my favorite. I love its earthy colors, which I find funny considering it's called "Seaweed." Beautiful!

Carlin said...

I like the "Lovely" Batt. Aptly named!

brownbear said...

Good for her! It seems like she only just opened the My8kidsmom shop.
I am most tempted by the combed top. The handspun is also lovely.

Great stuff.

I would love to have any of her Farm Fresh Batts, especially the Glitz or Seaweed. It would be fun to spin any of these batts with their exotic fiber combinations.

Chris said...

I wonder how the Jacob roving would knit up? Could it be separated into strands similar to Icelandic plutlopi?

Heather said...

Rachel is so terrific!

I really love the "Farm Fresh Batt Leah CormoX, Alpaca and Soysilk" -- added it to my Etsy favorites...
