The Critter Ranch Giveaway!





When The Critter Ranch's samples came for the August box, I was completely floored! Sue had carefully replicated her Llama ribbons onto paper, cut each individual one out and attached them to perfectly dyed corresponding fiber. These samples were like little works of art!!

I feel fortunate that I was able to snag a couple of ounces of the beautiful wine and pink colored roving and I simply can not wait to spin it!!! Sue's Llama is very lofty and soft and makes for super warm yarn!

Tell us what you think of Sue's shop! What are your favorites? Leave your comments below and we will draw a winner of this beautiful "Orleans County Ribbon" Llama roving on Saturday! Remember, we would love it if you could tweet and facebook and blog and ravelate about this giveaway! By helping Sue out, we'll count those as extra entries! Just let us know you did it!

Sue, thank you so much for sharing these delightful samples with us!!! Not only were they super soft and yummy, the colors were amazing!!
