I'm intrigued by the Five Plum Pie handspun yarn, the combination of colors works really well. I could list several of the other handspuns too. And then there is the Boy or Girl Batts with Merino, BFL and Samoyed fibers ... I'd really like to try that.

I really like those 8 Crazy Nights batts. I also quite liked the colors of the Boy or Girl batts, and was quite surprised to see samoyed in the fiber content! Good job! The woven scarves look lovely, too.

The handspun worsted in Sour Fig is so very, very wonderful. I would buy it except that I have a spinning wheel on its way to me. Maybe someday I will spin something as lovely as that.

Sharon Rose said...

I love the Seafoam! But if I could chose one thing it would be the Rose Garden woven scarf because it's gorgeous & I can't weave...yet! Thanks for the chance to win!

Romelda McKee said...

I immediately saw the Algonquin Hand Dyed Fingering Weight Yarn - Song of the Sea and got homesick. The coloring reminded me of Key West where I was born and my family home for 6 generations. I could look at thies color forever!

BFL Spinning Fiber - Trick or Treat

This sample caught my eye because today (Jan 6) is the day for King Cake! This just needs some green (I got some from my Secret Santa!) to be perfect for the season! I may have to knit in a trinket to be completely authentic.

Campbell said...

The colors in Jupiter Storm are incredible-so soft and delicate, but intense at the same time! And the Harvest Festival Shetland Wool Child's Scarf-amazing!

Beautiful stuff! I love the El Dorado Handspun!

Julie said...

I think I'm going to have to pick the Superwash Blue-Faced Leicester spinning fiber in Seafoam for my personal favorite. I've been wanting to give BFL a try, I've used merino until now. 4 oz is a nice size to start out with!
