Wild Hare and Giveaway!



I'm so very excited to be featuring this Phattie today. Wild Hare's shop is absolutely brimming with fiber candy of all shapes and sizes! From the awesome Spinolution wheels and spindles to art yarns and finished scarves this shop has it all!

Wild Hare is a one-stop shop with an artistic flare. Take a look at her new fiber ornaments! So festive and adorable! Melissa is also famous for utilizing local mills and fiber to create unique products like her tweedy roving (ingenious!)

I hope you all have fun perusing Wild Hare today! Melissa has generously offered this beautiful 3 oz "lucky" wool top for a giveaway! Just tell us which Wild Hare product really floats your boat in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner on Friday so be sure and let your other online friends know about the giveaway- twitter/facebook/ravelry.

I love all Melissa's fiber....I've got a drawerful to prove it. "Contemplation" is absolutely gorgeous and her Travel Niddy Noddy is a must have...I couldn't live without mine :)

Her Mirkwood local wool roving is gorgeous!

Katie said...

RTed @millarca!

Sally said...

I have the travel niddy noddy and LOVE it. It is nice that I can store it in such a small space! So many items in her shop right now are to dye for (HA!), but my absolute fav is the laurel tweed roving. It looks SOOO pretty!!! I bet it would make a great lacy hat or scarflet...

Love the Hobbit Handpainted Local Wool Roving 3 oz. Always love green, but this is a special woodsy feel roving!

Max. H said...

I love this shop - there is so much I want here & it's all presented very nicely as well. My favorite item is the Travel Niddy Noddy with Bag and WPI gauge! How neat - I am adding this to my Christmas wish list!

CinderLisa said...

I was going to say the Grateful Dyed roving, but I think really I love the Antique Shop top! It's such gorgeous colors!

A. Hiscock said...

Oh, the Copper Penny roving, hands down. I am a sucker for those colours. The Contemplation roving comes a close second, though. And I'm in awe of the depth of colour on the Malachite, too; I can't get my greens that saturated.

Twittered, too! @owldaughter

wooly daisy said...

everything is gorgeous-love the cornfield self striping roving:)

Renee J said...

I really like the Copper Penny and the Brocade and the Malacite and the Gypsy Rose...

Leslie said...

Love the Whisper roving, myself.

Maria said...

They are all so beautiful!! But the handspun, hand painted are my favorite! Oh, and I love the midnight roving!

cathy said...

The LAUREL TWEED local wool/silk blend roving is just gorgeous!

Stefania said...

I was just drooling over her shop yesterday. My pretty-near-randomly-picked-favorite (because I want it ALL) is Gypsy Rose.

1) Because I almost named my first daughter Gypsy.

2) Because it makes me feel comfortable with selling the occasional small, artsy skein.

3) Because it's so dadgum purty.

PJS said...

I absolutely adore the superwash 'whisper', so smooth.

Quilting Pansy said...

This is pretty cool:
PLANET local wool and ecospun blend roving

Kim said...

Holy goodness! Everything is great :) I love the Sargasso Superwash and the Grateful Dyed Superwash.

stacey said...

The Fireside Handspun rocks!!!

Crystal C Rutherford said...

It's always so difficult to choose one thing! I love Snow Cone handpainted organic wool top 3 oz. though, it's so cheery!

Susan said...

Vineyard, Midnight, and Olive Grove are my favorite colorways. There are so many gorgeous color combinations! Great work!

Ann Ryan said...

I really love the hurricane batts, especially the Geraldine, Felicity and Ellie!

Linda D said...

The Laurel tweed. And I WANT the needle gauge!

I love the Vineyard roving. The colour really flows and it looks super soft for spinning. Beautiful.

Wild Hare is one of my absolute favorite PhatFiber contributors! Right now I'm loving the Laurel Tweed and Beauty Tweed rovings, because I'm currently spinning up her Jasmine Tweed and it's so lovely.

The Spinning Daisy said...

I must be in a green mood, because the Sargasso and Malachite (and Lucky) are calling my name...

A few days ago it was the Antique Store colorway, but today I'm all about the green.

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

The Handpainted Superwash Merino Top ANTIQUE SHOP 4 oz., I love this colorway. The giveaway fiber is alos a favorite color combo.

cthulhulovesme said...

I'm really liking the Contemplation and Summer of '69 wool top. I've been overdoing it on green love lately, so the blues and purples are catching my eye.

denismtp said...

The Chocolate Cherry Sundae handspun looks yummy. And I need to order the drop spindle kit to try my hand at spinning. I need to put these on my llist to Santa!

The Grateful Dyed top! I love the name and the colors, not to mention I am a fan of the Grateful Dead. :D

theonlyevidence said...

I love all of the tweed roving. Beauty and Destiny would be especially gorgeous plyed together.

spinsandknits said...

I just love all the colors in the HURRICANE batt GERALDINE. Would make such a colorful skein of yarn when spun.

And the Olive Grove Organic Wool Top; imagining what scarf pattern to use for it .....

Minou14 said...

I love the Travel Niddy Noddy! It's crazy, but her "Grateful Dyed" roving is really speaking to me. The "Laurel Tweed", "Antique Shop", "Bread and Jam" and "Land and Sea" are also very pretty. I love her stuff!

Kristen said...

the green giveaway roving is so gorgeous. I also love the Deep Blue Sea Roving. wow.

TinkerTots said...

Whoa... CONTEMPLATION gives me pause for thought (haha) and the saturated purple is just amazing!

Anonymous said...

I love the "Summer of 69" Not only was I alive, I went to the movie with my husband before we were married. I was still in high school. I love the purple hues. Just Gorgeous

mermaid, wow that green is gorgeous!

Alaskan Nancy said...

To think that you'll know the name of the animal from whom you got the fleece--amazing.
Hey, I want one of those spinning wheels!

jennifer said...

Oh, those Fleece on Earth angels are adorable!

ikkinlala said...

I love the Garnet kettle dyed wool top.

Kathleen said...

I love the little bit of purple peeking out of the Sunset wool roving!

Cozy Knitting said...

I apologize to everyone. I bought the last angel today. Perfect little something gift for my spinning bud. I love the Georgia peach color. The malachite is nice too.

knittingdancer said...

The Sachet handspun superwash floats my boat.

helenlam said...

I like the Monkey Project or Goodie Bag 9X12.

Kate said...

Yum scrum!! I love the GYPSY ROSE Handspun Art Yarn, the colours and textres are just delicious. :-) Kate

Sharon Rose said...

Ooo that Pumpkin Spice is so tasty... but the superwash rainbow "GRATEFUL DYED" is the absolute bomb!
Thanks so much for a chance to win!

Sarah said...

I love the vivid colors of the snowcone and citrus tonic tops. They look as if they'd spin up dreamily, and could be used to create some eye-catching winter garb that will stand out in the mountains of snow we get up here.

PenelopeRose said...

Oooh, I love the colors in the "Local Wool Roving VINEYARD 3 oz."! What a great shop!

Elisabeth said...

Difficult! But I keep coming back to the sampler of local coopworth roving - five different natural colors, and if you read the detailed description you will even find the names of the sheep that the wool came from!

spinquilt said...

OH MY GOODNESS What lovely fibre. If I had to choose one it would be cornfield ............. love those greens but then there is the little Niddy Noddy. Lovely site Thanks for the link.

One Sheep said...

My choice is the beautiful Antique Shop SW Merino Top. I love the combination of colors.

Christine said...
