Sheeps of Egyptian Cotton Giveaway!



For the February Box, Betty of Sheeps of Egyptian Cotton sent in some amazing mini facial scrubbies in her Isis Cotton.

I love Betty's shop! She's always coming up with new ways to make yarn. I'm especially intrigued by the "Sheep's Clothing" yarns. She takes pre-loved sweaters and hand-plies the threads to create new, unique, earth friendly yarns.

We're giving away this beautiful handspun hank of alpaca (128 yds 3 ply) spun by Betty to a lucky commenter. Just visit Sheeps of Egyptian Cotton, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner later in the week. Remember, I like to award extra entries to those of you who plurk, twitter, facebook etc about this giveaway!

Betty, thank you for going above and beyond with your samples in February!
