The Critter Ranch Llamas in Pajamas!



I still just can't get over the cuteness of January's Critter Ranch samples!! Sue must be an amazingly creative person to think of this!

If you didn't see the sneak peek video, the llama roving samples were dressed in flannel pajamas! Sue based her samples on the book Llamas in Pajamas and I think she did a fantastic job! There are still a couple left in her shop, go snag one!

Sue has generously offered up a full-sized Llama in a Pajama and matching book for a giveaway! Please visit The Critter Ranch, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below! We'll be giving this away this weekend, so be sure and twitter and facebook for extra entries!

Sue, every month I say you outdid yourself, I can't wait to see what your February samples will be!

I love the Hand Spun Yarn...Vines of Flowers...Art yarn and the adorable Llamas in Pajamas!!!

Chris said...

The shades of grey roving is lovely. It... it... makes me want to learn to spin! Is this how it starts? One irresistible fiber followed by another and another?

Elisabeth said...

The newly listed Smoke and Mirrors fiber batt looks beautiful. I also quite like the one called Rain Forest Canopy. And llamas in pajamas make me smile - even if I've seen them several times before.

Carlin said...

I like the Dusty Rose Roving. It would be perfect for just about any project.

Annette said...

The Hand Spun....Candy Striped Apple...Burgundy and Natural White Llama and angelina looks wonderful!

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

I am lucky enough to know Sue and be pretty close to her farm! I never leave there without something! But these new Fiber Batt...Be Mine.. in Valentine Red hand dyed Llama with bamboo tusah Silk and firestar are gorgeous!

Summer Garden Fiber Batt. So pretty. I've almost forgotten what summer looks like...

Little Tin Goddess said...

My son and fiance both LOVE felted soap, and we are running out! I would love a kit to make them more, and the blue one is so beautiful and boyish!

Julie said...

The llama in pajamas IS wonderfully cute! I think, for the sake of being a little different, I'm going to pick the Painted Pony batt as my favorite. Because I love me some ponies.

They look like they were done in a similar style to the frogs and polliwogs I got last fall and LOVE.

Llamas in Pajamas! That's so clever! I quite like the natural brown mix of that, as well as the Harvest Moon alpaca-cheviot roving. So lovely!

I love the felted soap kits, especially the one in purples. I also liked the coral reef roving and the fiber sample of the baby alpaca.

Petra said...

Llama SunSet just makes me happy and calm. And Be Mine ...it radiates with energy. Love that!

drMolly, the BeanQueen said...

I watched the video when you unpacked the box - those PJswere the absolutest cutest.
I love the RainForest Canopy batt!

Renee J said...

Love the llamas in pajamas... The Candy Striped Apple is sweet as well!

Snaps said...

I love the color sample packs because I can never decide on a colorway and this would allow me to mix it up a bit. I also really love the llamas in pajamas.

Carissa said...

Caught my eye!!! Absolutely love the Be Mine in Valentine Red hand dyed Llama with bamboo tusah Silk and firestar!!!

Make yourself necessary to someone...................................................

PenelopeRose said...

I'm loving the natural colors in the Fiber Batt....Painted Pony show...,Llama,Jacob,Mohair 2.1oz natural colors brown,white and gray!

A. Hiscock said...

I love the idea of the felted soaps, and the purple/blue one looks so soothing. And it's a real switch from my usual earthy tones, but I love the Shades of Grey roving braid.

I like seeing samples of the spun colourways. I probably wouldn't buy the Waldorf Salad roving if I saw it presented just as the fibre itself, but being able to see the handspun yarn in another listing I know I'd love to spin it up!

MissMoosey on Ravelry said...

I have never seen such cute fiber in my life! I am sure that I will dream of llamas in pajamas tonight!

In the shop, I love the Celestial Sheep roving. I love the idea of a Celestial Sheep!

trh said...

So much to love in that shop! The very best, of course, are the Llamas in pajamas - both the sample size and the full size. I was lucky enough to get a llama sample in an earlier box and it was a delight to spin. I would love to buy more.

I lust after the fiber batt in Garden Harvest.
