Smoky Mountain Fibers Saturn Giveaway!



I hope everyone knows by now that our theme for December's box is "Aurora Borealis and Beyond". I want everyone to also know that our AnneMarie from SmokyMountainFibers has been ahead of the game for a while! She has a lot of celestial inspired fibers in her shop.

One of the prettiest planetary inspired rovings is her "Saturn" colorway, and that is what she's sent in for us to sample in December. It's bright and warm and would be the perfect spin-by-the-fire you need during the dark winter nights ahead!

We're giving away 3 oz of this beautifully saturated hand dyed roving today! Just visit Smoky Mountain Fibers (why not pick a few things up while you're there!) find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a name on Saturday, so be sure and twitter/facebook/blog about this giveaway to get extra entries.

AnneMarie, Thank you so much for offering us a sample of this deliciousness!! It's out of this world! (sorry, I just had to)

I love the 'sea glass' hand dyed locks, beautiful colour combo...of course, thats not the only thing I love, I have spun smokey mountain before.

Kim said...

Wow, there is all sorts of good stuff going out this week!

I like the white horse hair. It isn't comfortable in any sort of garment but I love to spin it.

lilyunfolding said...

oooh i love the carnivale hand dyed mohair locks. the natural greys are really pretty too.

Lindsey said...

Oooh, this is pretty. It is definitely one of my favorite things in the shop, but so many other things are gorgeous, too! The one calling to me right now is the Carnivale mohair locks, but it's a hard choice.

Off to tweet about this, too!

LilChickadee said...

The Seaside roving is just dreamy!

AnneMarie said...

Hi everybody - Glad you like the Saturn roving. I love making it. The shops a bit depleted now;-( thanks to people who like to make their holiday gifts;-)

spinsandknits said...

LOVE the colors in your "Saturn" roving -- looks like a sunset.

I also love Tie Dye Hand Dyed Merino Wool Roving. The colors remind me of the flowers on hankies my Grandma always carried.

Magan said...

Mmmmm, I love the Reds paintbox. The Beach Glass and Carnival mohair locks are also divine.

Stefania said...

Would it be fair for me to win this, since AnneMarie is already my pusher woman? Would it be fair for me to win this even though I *just* ordered wool from her? Would it be fair for me to win this... by saying that I would love to put my hands on those sexy Carnivale mohair locks, though I've already made a commitment to the Beach Glass locks? Yes, it would totally be fair. And I'm also facebooking.

Laurel said...

Wow, PRETTY fiber! I love the Neptune and Seaside fibers. They look like they would be fun to spin.

I love the Shades of Green Romney Locks!

rebelhousewife said...

I have way too much mohair as it but this is just great Beach Glass - Hand Dyed Mohair Locks - 3 ounces .

MissMoosey on Ravelry said...

I love the Lilacs wool, but I also love all of the undyed wools as well! They are all such natural beauties!

Alaskan Nancy said...

I loved the rovings so much that I bought some! I might have bought the colorway in your banner if you'd had it: That is especially lovely.

cthulhulovesme said...

I'm really fond of the Bronze Green Hand Dyed Merino Wool Roving. As I've said before, I'm a total sucker for green. :)

Cheryl said...

Wow, everything in the shop is gorgeous! Great prices on natural roving, too. Beautiful!

Elisabeth said...

I really like the Felter's Paintbox items, especially the one with shades of green. The hand dyed merino wool roving called Marigold is also exceptionally beautiful.

Heather said...

LOVE the paintboxes for felt makers, but I'd like to spin them instead... :)

Heather said...

RTed @ winemakerssister

Natalie said...

The Neptune colorway of roving is perfect, and the Seaside just begs to be spun into laceweight and knit into a shawl!

dixiemaiden said...

I like the "Mercury" roving.

knittingdancer said...

I love the Venus colorway in the lavender and pinks.

I don't usually go for the blues, but the Seaside Hand Dyed Wool Roving is speaking to me. It's gorgeous!

BeckyS said...

I love the undyed wools.. they are getting hard to find these days.. the Moss Green Romney locks are beautiful. My dd's vote is for the Tie Dyed Merino, Venus, and Lilacs... she likes purple! LOL

RTed..

Bingers said...

love the neptune and seaside colorways!

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

Mercury is great planet, all speedy and tiny and cute, but it can't compare to the Mercury Hand Dyed Wool Roving!

HeatherD said...

I really liked the gull lace hat! I will have to check back after the holidays to take a look at her fiber.

Knitmomma said...

Apparently you did a good job getting attention there...the shop is almost bare! I like Beach Glass - Hand Dyed Mohair Locks - 3 ounces from the recently sold items, though!

krex said...

It's to late to enter, so you know these comments coe from the heart ....none of those recent buyers will be disappointed...long time buyer and fan of all your fibers and just hoping that all these new fans wont get all the fiber before I can order some !

Campbell said...

Love the Windy City, REALLY love the Windy City hat, but REALLY, REALLY love Smoky Mountain Fibers!

Love all the great roving - especially the greens. I'm missing spring time...

The Spinning Daisy said...

I really like the Neptune and Saturn rovings. Very nice.

Ann Ryan said...

I might be too late :) But I really like the gull lace hat!

Kenlynn said...

I like the Gull Lace Hat.

Snaps said...

I love the saturated colors of the fiber. Since everything is sold out except patterns, the blues and greens in the "sold" page really catch my eye.

Victoria Martin said...

what a lovely colourway Saturn is! I see the store is sold out of most everythign at the moment, but browsing through some of the past sales sure is enticing! I love this colourway, the blues & the Autumn golds the most I think, but it sure is hard to narrow it down, lol!
