Fleecemakers Fibers and Giveaway!



New to the box is Fleecemakers Fibers! This month, Liz sent in some really beautifully dyed Romney fiber in deep jewel tones. Now, I don't usually automatically think soft and Romney go together, but this stuff is pretty nice! Maybe it's all the tender loving care the Romney lambs get from Liz!

Fleecemakers Fibers
has an abundant shop full of fiber for the tasting! I think I must have some of the "melon patch" Romney roving- the colors just look delightful! And the locks! How cute!

We're giving away this richly dyed Romney roving to a lucky commenter on the blog. Just visit Fleecemakers Fibers and find something you like, write about it in the comments section below, and we'll draw for a name later in the week. Be sure and twitter, facebook and ravelate about it for extra entries!

Thanks Liz, for sharing your beautiful fiber with us!

Her colors are beautiful. Yet I was most intrigued by the Three Way Natural Color Romney swirl. I like the idea of using the natural color variations in fiber to make such an gorgeous blend.

Her art batts are really nice. I also like the name Springs Promise-it's a pretty colorway. But I think I drifted towards Pumkin Raspberry Mocha roving.

I may have just found my own personal heaven! I do not know why but Romney is one of my all time favs. I just love the way it takes dye. I love to hand card it. It just spins so nice for me! *sigh* so to pick a fav. I love her hand dyed Romney. She has some that are in colors with bits of pumpkin orange, green, and some other bits of color thrown it. It is beautiful.

Brenda Marie said...

I really love the hand carded wool blend in the earthy red here (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=38983238). It's so lovely.

It really puts me in mind of that thick red mud you find some places where the soil is rich clay. Like the varying shades of red the earth gets when it rains... as the soil runs down the hill, the colors change and layer, and the puddles froth a little at the edges, in lighter and sometimes surprising shades.

Sinclair said...

I really like the Romney Wool Fleece Dyed 3.2ounces in green hues!!!

Karen Sherwood said...

I love the Purple Majesty fleece! It reminds me of the edges of clouds at the beginning and end of a good Arizona sunset. :)

heather said...
