I have been wanting to learn to spin forever now. I just never buy the kits to learn. This would be amazing.

I really like silver sun alpacas stuff. The Frosted Plum reminded me of my hair in high school and I absolutely love it.

I really love the Spruce - Hand Dyed Milk Protein Fiber Top. I bet the colors would come together really nicely!

Chris said...

Tree Frog is delightful!

And yes, I really would like to learn how to spin!

Patience Ann said...

The Tree Frog handspun is beyond exquisite & reminds me of my very most beloved White's tree frog, Charlie. <3 RTed @millarca

I really want to learn to spin so that I can make something like purple mist handspun. Just gorgeous.

TULIPS - Hand Painted alpaca Yarn


I love the combination of orange and purple! I especially liked the inclusion of the painting that inspired the yarn. Great work!

I'm in love with the Frosted Plum. I actually have some fiber here...but have never bought a drop spindle. I know I need one. Someday I'd LOVE to have a spinning wheel.

Nightphoenix said...

The Pear Green sampler basket is gorgeous. That would inspire any one to want to learn to spin.

TJJ said...

The natural brown alpaca yarn is gorgeous, the frosted plum is beautiful as well, would make a lovely yarn.

Julie said...

Woooow, there is some fantastic stuff in here! I had a really hard time deciding! I'm going to have to go with the Lavender Vanilla batt as my favorite.

A Rose said...

Frosted Plums batts. Nice deep color. Alpaca, bamboo, glitz! I've really had a thing for purple lately.

Elisabeth said...

Frosted plums! I'd really like to see what that would turn into as a yarn. It is part of the spider web collection, which also has some incredibly nice natural colors. I tried the Alpaca/silk medium fawn a while back, and wouldn't mind more of that either.

elendir said...

Another hard one... guess it's a tie between the Pear Green Sampler, Obsidian and Frosted Plums, I just love all three.

Elaine said...

I love the PURPLE MIST - Pure Mohair Handspun Yarn and would really really love to learn to spin!

I was thinking this morning that the last thing I needed was to learn how to spin. But...how can I resist the lure of such a giveaway? Kinda hope I win, kinda hope I don't LOL

There's much to like in the store, but I especially like the natural brown medium weight alpaca/silk from Ala. Absolutely gorgeous!

I love the whole shop! But the Frozen Lake Spinning Batt really caught my eye.

I've had "learn to spin" on my to-do list for a long time now. Winning this would be a great kick in the you-know-what.

Stephanie said...

I love the "frosted plums" batt and the "tanzanite" batt. While I already spin on a drop spindle, I want to teach my mom, so if I win the kit, it will be for her.

Frosted Plums batt -the color is GORGEOUS.

katerina said...

I have fiber, (that I won as part of a contest) but no spindle, and I don't know how - but really want to learn!
The Silver sun Alpaca spindles look very very pretty, and the fiber is so yummy looking! especially the purple in the spinning kits (i think it's frosted plums) and the tea party too!
I am also coveting your tulips hand dyed as well!

Jeannine vjv said...

The pear green is beautiful & the natural light & medium fawn is as well. Am trying... key work trying to learn how to spin, the drafting eludes me, am plugging away on it.

I love the Pear Green. I'm just learning to spin using a spindle and am in major need of fiber!

Heather said...

Well, you can tell what my favorite is! I just bought "Frosted Plums" with the GIVEAWAY discount code... ;)

Jane Knitter said...

I am awed with the offerings on SILVER SUN ALPACAS.
I am torn between PUT THE LIME WITHE COCNUT or the PEAR GREEN. One of them will be a birthday present for my daughter who is a green fiend. With her green eyes these will be a hit for sure.

Thanks for pointing out the site!

PenelopeRose said...

The Alpaca Top Sampler - The Spider Webs Collection is very much tempting me! Beautiful fibers!!

Robin said...

SOLIEL - 100 percents Baby Alpaca yarn caught my eye- I wish she had bigger spindles I have a small one but need a bigger(weightier) one.

Ottertop Workshop said...
