WC Mercantile Mystery bag giveaway!




While we are on the subject of gifts... wouldn't it be wonderful to get a gift certificate from WCMercantile this year?! Maybe Steph can make up something to print out and put on a fridge as a not-so-subtle hint to everyone *evil grin*. And wouldn't it be lovely, if you had a big enough one to get one of those yummy majacraft wheels?! A girl can dream, I guess!

For October, WCMercantile sent in mini mystery packs for you all to sample. I've already seen one of you use yours to felt some adorableness (hi Pauline!) and I thought that would be super fun to try, and what a great way to get you started on a felting adventure too- this wonderful mix of a wooly rainbow!

We're giving away this 3 oz bag of mystery roving to a lucky commenter! Just visit WCMercantile, find something you like ( I know- too hard to pick!) and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be counting your tweets, plurks, facebook updates, ravelry posts etc as second entries (you've got to let us know you did it!) Also, pretty pretty please, leave a way for me to contact you should Mr Random Integer Generator should pick you- we've got a growing pile of unclaimed winnings!

Oh, there are so many cool things in that shop. Since I'm thinking about taking up dyeing, I relaly like the dyes.

Redundant Bombshell said...

I've been wanting to try my hand at dyeing lately, I'd have to say some of the undyed Superwash BFL Sock Yarn.

The bright red firestar it gorgeous! Of course then there is the tropical...hard to choose.

The Mailes said...

I actually like the undyed hankies. I did a project once where you dyed the hankies and it was fun and kid friendly. wouldn't mind some dyes to go with it. . . .

Elisabeth said...

Click your way to the Merino Top "Midnight" and prepare to enjoy yourself ... relax ... concentrate ... and hit 'zoom'.

Ooh, I love the superfine merino/cashmere top - never heard of something like that! sounds absolutely luscious!

KT said...

OMG what do I have to do to win this? I've already bought four of these bags, and I've only been spinning for three months! :) Seriously, I love the WCM mystery bags. They've got all kinds of fibers, lots of yummy colors, and make excellent mystery yarn. Swoon.

Also, Tweeted!

Kat said...

This is so easy. I visit this shop frequently to dream about the Majacraft Millie wheel. I am saving to buy that one.

Kenlynn said...

Your rovings are all so beautiful.
I especially like the Marina Merino Top.

idyll hands said...

Ooooh - I love the Bright Tropic Firestar - but I'm a firestar nut when it comes to blending fibers for spinning!

:)

Kim said...

I love the Deep Sea merino/tencel blend.

I'm at kimscorner [at] ymail.com

Susan said...

Oh, so many choices! Such a tough decision! Well, if I had to pick just one, I would go for the merino-tussah blend roving in MacKenzie Tartan. Gorgeous blend of colors and fibers.

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

Love the 4 oz. Merino and Tussah Silk Top - Muscadine Grape, purple with shiny, what more could you want?

A Rose said...

mmmm cashmere top... Also debating getting a majacraft little gem from there. I hear that's a great wheel.

Jags said...

A mystery bag sounds like tons of fun!

I'm thinking your merino/tencel undyed sock yarn would be exciting to experiment with and the price is great!

elendir said...

Dark Chocolate alpaca is soooo yummy!

PogKnits said...

As you've seen I've already been bitten by the felting bug, so I'd say one of my faves from the shop are the Felting Wool Artist's Pallets likeone

Amanda said...

I love the 4 oz. Merino and Tussah Silk Top - Purple Passion and in Texas Rose!

Sharon Rose said...

I love the Deep Sea Merino/Tencel blend. SO pretty!

PS- is there someplace we can check to see if we are an unclaimed winner? I just noticed a while back that my email link wasn't working on my blogger profile. It's fixed now, but I wonder if I missed out on something delicious...

Autumn said...

All of the spinning wheels are absolutely amazing. And I love love love the Bright Red Firestar.

Kate said...

Yum Scrum!!! What delicious goodies on offer. I love the Merino and Tussah Silk Top - Muscadine Grape. Just beautiful, how lovely would that be to spin up?!

PNWBookGirl said...

The Merino Tencel Top - Deep Sea is tempting me! The Mystery Bags look like they could be a lot of fun to play with too. I recently spun up a bunch of little samples similar to it. Just need to find a project to make out of it now!

dinahsaurus said...

I love the Farm Fresh yearling mohair in blue/pink/brown, or even the plain pink!

TinkerTots said...

Can I just have one of the Ashford Joy's and call it a day? No. Really!

Or maybe just the Midnight Garden roving ;)

Breien in Lansingerland said...

The Merino in Pickle and Sage Leaf are absolutely stunning

Little Miss S. said...

I love the colors of the Bright Green Firestar roving.

cdoran said...

Dark chocolate - scrummy

Donna said...

I just purchased some Firestar from WCMercantile. Want to go back for some Superwash BFL Sockyarn.

So many temptations!

Bingers said...

i've bought something like this from her before... her stuff is great.

Max. H said...

I love this store so much! Especially the luxury fibers - the angora top & cashmere top sound amazing!

ikkinlala said...

I love the Merino Wool Top in Cabin. I like how they have such a great selection of solid colours.

pickle top!

PenelopeRose said...

You're right it is hard to choose one item! Although, the Earthues Botanical Dye Kit and 1 pound of Merino Wool caught my eye. That would be a fun thing to play with!

Nightphoenix said...

It's an absolute tie between the Blueberry Blues and the Deep Sea merino roving.

Robin said...

When I'm ready to dye I'll get Undyed Merino and Silk Yarn - its my fav mix of yarn

Magan said...

All the dyed merino is gorgeous, and a good price! I think Sea Foam is my favorite of the colors.

Berry Gal said...

ooooh Shamrock! What a perfect green!

Ann Ryan said...

I think the grab bags look like so much fun!

Tracie said...

There are too many yummy colours/varieties of fiber in the shop to just pick out one. I really like the packages of felting fibers so I wouldn't have to choose just one colour.

Melissa's Kre8tions said...

I love the Farm Fresh listings! The black and white is my favorite! ^_^

The ladies at WC Mercantile are the nicest! I'm a new customer there and find them to be very attentive and patient with the newbies! Having just taken their dyeing class, I would love to stock up on some merino or BFL to spin up and dye with the Earthues Kit. AND I've been inquiring about the double treadle kit for my Ashford Traditional... but, hey, maybe just a whole 'nother wheel?

The silk "hankies" are also tempting :)
