Feeling Sheepish and *giveaway*



The October Boxes are winging their way to their owners and inside several there are some lovely milk samples from Feeling Sheepish!

Laura is on a mission- to procure a drum carder! I love spinning batts, so I want to help enable myself- errr, I mean Laura in this new adventure! She's having a wonderful 20% off sale! Just mention her quest for a drum carder in the notes to seller.

Laura's fiber are so yummy! Beautiful mulberry silk, soft milk fiber and pretty wools. I really like all of the darker neutrals she offers!

We're giving away a 2 oz braid of beautiful luminescent mulberry silk spinning fiber! Just visit Feeling Sheepish, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. If you go the extra mile and twitter, ravelate, blog, or facebook about Laura's shop, we'll count that as a second entry- just let me know you did it! You have until Friday!

I absolutely love the milk latte in the wedding sari colorway. Stunning!

thetexturedknitter said...

What does one make out of a yarn like Walden? I am a complete sucker for 2plys with shifting colors, but any project I can think to make would just obscure how beautiful the yarn is.

RT'd you from my Twitter, btw. (Brienze)

I loooove the magpie mulberry silk roving.

A. Hiscock said...

I adore Laura's work. Her colour sense is so evocative. My past faves include Granite, Autumn Sunset, and Sparkling Gems. Of the current colourways, I love imagining what I could do with Cafe au Lait.

I plugged Feeling Sheepish in the comments to my blog last night, but I don't suppose that counts. :)

A. Hiscock said...

Hee -- just tweeted my love for the Feeling Sheepish shop, too. She deserves that drum carder!

Maybe it's the rain and the fog today, but Nottingham just makes me want to curl up and knit underneath it.

I must have a thing about blue/purple sparklies, so it comes as no surprise that I like the iolite, sapphires & amethyst. Lovely!

Rachel O said...

Wow this is enough to make me want to learn to spin.

I love Feeling Sheepish's shop! I've bought several things from her and her colorways are even more gorgeous in person than on the screen. She really goes the extra mile with special requests too! I haven't gotten brave enough to try spinning silk yet, but her Magpie color way is fantastic! I also love Napa Valley . . .

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

2.8 oz chestnut brown and black wool roving / top is fabulous. I'm really getting into earthtones lately.

I just learned about milk fiber from this shop! Cool! I LOVE the "Wedding Sari Milk Fiber." Colors are beautiful!

Definitely will add this seller to my hearts in etsy. :)

One Sheep said...

I'd been sitting out for a while after winning a couple giveaways, but it is definitely time to get back into the fray!

I was just about to comment on the Cafe au Lait milk latte fiber roving when Vickie's comment caught my eye. Last Rose? Did I miss something? So back I went, and now I have two faves (really about a dozen).

Cozy Knitting said...

I like the brown and black roving. I think it looks like pecans or fall nuts. The Iris is pretty, but feeling a little "nutty" today.

Jags said...

OMG that silk is gorgeous!

It was hard to pick a favorite, I love just about everything in your shop!

But today the Be My Valentine silk is my favorite :)

Max. H said...

Wow! Gorgeous & luxurious fibers here. My favorite is pure mulberry silk sliver / top in green, brown, yellow and violet. The color combo is perfect :)

Kat said...

This is one of my favorite shops. I love the Wedding Sari, Fall Leaves and Sapphires and Amethysts. I am hoping to acquire Wedding Sari to use as a Christmas gift.

danidocrafty said...

Her handspuns are absolutely beautiful but I have to say my current favorite is her Bourbon Street Corridale. GORGEOUS and I have a soft spot for New Orleans.

Nightphoenix said...

The Be my Valentine silk roving would have to be my pick!

Robin said...

YinYang bamboo or Magpie silk- decisions decisions

Melissa said...

I love the wedding suir. Pretties.

Misty said...

Gah. I just bought the Wedding Sari Milk latte and the Iris Mulberry silk -- I've never spun either fiber before and with a discount how could I resist!! I'm also going to twitter this - @electricsoup!

StephCat said...

magpie romney!

Magan said...

The mulberry silks look terrific. I may have to try them out! I'm especially loving the Fall Leaves colorway.

Posted on Facebook in the spinning group I belong to.

Bethany Foisy said...

I've been having a "thing" for blue fibres lately... so I've got to say that Magpie is definitely a winner for me. Maybe I'm already getting into a winter sort of mood... (and I might just have to go back to the shop and splurge a little...)

Email is bc.foisy@hotmail.com

fingers crossed!

The Candy Dots romney braid is just beautiful. And...over 8 oz. braid is really a good idea. Good luck getting that drum carder.

DENISE said...

I love the "Green Macaw" color way. I bet is spins up pretty.

Shelley Voight said...

I love the Napa Valley braid. It is not only a lovely colour, but also brings back memories of being in Napa. The wine tours are amazing! I also tweeted on Twitter :-)

I love the Easter Morning in the Mulberry Silk brick. The colors reminds me of a tie-dyed tee shirt I had in high school in the 1970's.
