Wabi Sabi Yarns giveaway!



Are any of you going to Stitches West? Well, if you are, be sure and find Wabi Sabi Yarns at booth 643. Wabi Sabi will be sharing a booth with Poppy Flower Fibers because they are both the fruits of the same indie dyer!

Wabi Sabi is not in February's box, but many of you will be able to experience the amazingly rich color of these yarns in March. Lisa, the dye maven behind Wabi Sabi yarns has sent in a special giveaway called "Iris Patch". This colorway is available in her Etsy shop and you might want to bookmark www.wabisabiyarns.com as it will be launching very soon!

We're giving away this skein of Tallulah sock yarn to a lucky commentor! Just visit Wabi Sabi Yarns and find something you like, write about it in the comments section below, and we'll draw for a winner Sunday. Remember to twitter and facebook about this for extra entries!

LOVE! I could always use some sock yarn

Diana Troldahl said...

I loved the Cashmere in the Koala, loved the silk in the bliss, but I kept being drawn back to the Tallulah in the Embers colorway. Wow. just wow!

limejuicy said...

I love Wabi Sabi Yarns! I've ordered a few skeins recently. The Koala base is very yummy. I love it in Caramel. :) I can't wait to try the Bliss worsted as well.

The giveaway color, Iris Pathc, is just stunning, I also love the Embers and Caramel.

Rachel Suntop said...

I would have to say the Iris Patch is my fav. I've been knitting with some of Wabi Sabi's yarn samples recently...a real joy!

Anne said...

I LOVE EMBERS!!!

SusanSW said...

I've already bought several skeins of Tallulah from Wabi Sabi yarns because her colorways are just so luscious and unusual. My latest favorite is Aurora Borealis but she does absolutely the best job of dyeing multi-colors and semi-solids.

I love the Aurora Borealis in the Tallulah Sock. Another of those yarns I watched too long, and it got away.

Yikes! I really want to win this one. It is gorgeous.

Elaine said...

Blogged about the contest at

Carla said...

A really really tough choice. I love them all. Maybe a slight preference for Bliss Hand-Dyed Worsted - Teal merino silk, but they are all fab.

purple said...

Since purple is my first name, not my middle name, I'll have to go with my two favorites: Iris Patch and Sugar Plum

knitting fool said...

The colors are all so vibrant - Koala Hand-Dyed Sock - Merlot merino/cashmere/nylon is especially lovely

Jersey said...

I just want them all. Every one is gorgeous. A favorite? Just one? Lavender Mist merino/cashmere/nylon

Jags said...

OMG i want this so bad! I got one of her samples and it is one of the nicest sock yarns I've ever seen and the colors are deeply saturates and gorgeous

I think my fave is Tallulah Hand-Dyed Sock - Embers, it looks like yummy yummy caramel and chocolate turtles

Knitmomma said...

Beautiful! Tallulah Hand-Dyed Sock - Iris Patch is absolutely gorgeous!

Yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

The Iris Patch is my favorite if I look for colors that are wearable for me. If I widen my perspective and simply look for beautiful items, I'm drawn towards Goldilocks and Embers.

Donna said...

I love this Koala Hand-Dyed Sock - Lavender Mist merino/cashmere/nylon!

OMG- I just spend 2 hours in my LYS yesterday looking for the perfect yarn for a project - couldn't find it - and there it is in the WabiSabi shop: SugarPlum merino silk worsted.

Raymie said...

I love the Embers colorway!

emwall24 said...

I've had my eye on these yarns since before she had even officially opened! I love her colors. My favorite so far has been the Turquoise she put up awhile back, and I'd love it in the Koala. I'm such a pushover for cashmere!

Garilynn said...

Veridian is just lovely! I like all the yarns, but the greens are my favorites.

Garilynn said...

All of the yarns look so beautiful. I think the one I'm most attracted to is the Bliss worsted in the color Sugar Plum. The color is so rich and beautiful!

Cozy Knitting said...

Love these colors! The merlot is really rich. The Goldilocks was pretty, but the purples are really nice.

Max. H said...

Oh my goodness! I LOVE everything in this shop. The colors are so rich & saturated - exactly how I like them. My favorite item in the shop right now is the worsted sugar plum merino silk - wow!

I just went back to look. This might be the prettiest yarns I've ever seen. Seriously need some of the Iris Patch. Like seriously (hint to family - Valentine's is coming!)

wenchamok said...

*DROOL!* That's awesome! The Embers colorway is so subtle and gorgeous!

Sarah said...

I also love the teal merino...just delightful@

LainyJ said...

I was in the shower and just realized that this is the 5th anniversary of my end of breast cancer treatment. Although I know that doesn't mean I'm out of the woods, it does mean that statistically-speaking, my chances of long-term survival just went up. Being a mathematician who does a lot of statistical analysis, I like that a lot!

So I decided that since statistics are going my way right now, it was worth a long-shot like this, especially for such beautiful yarn which is my absolute favorite color combo and one that I wear almost all the time.

The Iris Patch is definitely my favorite.

PJS said...

I absolutely love the Koala Hand-Dyed Sock in Caramel ....mmmmm

Kenlynn said...

I love your Koala Hand-Dyed Sock - Merlot merino/cashmere/nylon it's such a deep gorgeous color.
