Smoky Mountain Fiber Giveaway!


I do apologize for not posting for a couple of days. My little family was involved in a car accident on Saturday and though there were no broken bones, we're all a little tender to the touch and trying to rest easy.

I was thrilled to see Anne Marie of Smoky Mountain Fiber arts in our last box. Her element was "fire" can you tell? She sent in some beautifully hand painted merino and some luxuriously soft mohair locks for everyone to experience! You know, I just love the shiny mohair locks! I admit though, I have never tried an exciting "tailspun" art yarn with them- this is something I must try! The locks I spin are usually carded in with other fibers in batt form- which make for a deliciously silken sheen that adds strength and warmth to a yarn.

Visit Smoky Mountain Fibers and get your fiber fix on! We're giving away a full 2 oz size of her fire colorway- just let us know which one of Anne Marie's listings has really caught your eye! Write about it in the comments section below, and we'll draw for a winner later in the week. Make sure you twitter, facebook, ravelate etc about this contest to get extra entries. We really appreciate you helping us get the word out about how awesome Smokey Mountain Fibers is!

A car accident, how scary! Glad to hear everyone is alright.

The colors in "Neptune Hand Dyed Merino Wool Roving 3.8 ounces" are dreamy!

I looked through the whole shop but I must say that the Beach Glass - Hand Dyed Mohair Locks - 3 ounces kept catching my eye. The colors are wonderful!

beautyredefined said...

Glad to hear there were no broken bones, but still, take it easy! Bruising is no fun, either.

Honestly, the fire colorway is definitely my favorite. I'm a fire girl myself, and gravitate towards warm reds, oranges and yellows. Nom.

The Leaves of Green, a Paintbox for Felt Makers has such beautiful colors!

Sorry to hear about the car crash, hope all is well.

Glad everyone survived the car accident!

Neptune and Blue Planet both are quite nice

Heather said...

I hope you and the family are feeling better, Jessie!

My choice is Mercury -- lovely soft blue-violet stuff!

CindyD said...

Smokey Mountain has wonderful colors of fiber. I love the Plums and Berries hand dyed merino fiber.

cathy said...

The bronze green is awesome.

jessecreations said...

I've been eyeing Neptune for a while now, but I really like Plums & Berries, too. Plus, her paintbox for felters would be cool to make this awesome felted scarf I saw online. So many choices!

I may actually be in love with the NEptune colorway.

Glad to hear that everyone is ok!

Campbell said...

Smoky Mountain Fibers is responsible for getting me on the felting bandwagon...responsible for me finding my "place", and for that I am grateful. I love the Beach Glass locks, the Fire locks, and the weaving yarns destashes-the blues and earth tones. SMF is ROCKING in my book!

I love the marigold hand dyed merino, it is soo springy and happy! Eek I must resist buying it since I am saving up for a spinning wheel...

fuzzy-slipper said...

Leaves of Green. I don't know what it is. I'm consistently drawn to the whole blue/green combo. I can't get enough of it.

Glad to hear you are all well.

Glad no one was hurt too badly. Usually it's the psychological shock that's more alarming than the physical, but time heals all things.

sherry said...

not only are her hand-dyed rovings/tops beautiful...she, also, carries felting supplies! I think the 'fire' colorway would look wonderful in something felted I have planned...ahem, HINT!

Since I've just gotten into dyeing some of my own stuff, as well...I really appreciate that Smoky Mountain Fibers carries decent natural roving at affordable prices. I'll definately be purchasing some of that in the near future!

Zombie Queen said...

The Venus colroway! Gorgeous!

Galia Lael said...

I love the purple tie dye merino roving. And the fire you're giving away.

Susan said...

Hey, these prices are great! What a bargain for naturally-pigmented roving by the pound! If I were to go for the dyed stuff, Mercury is my favorite. It's a lovely purple mix.

heather said...

I hope your family is feeling back to normal soon. I really like the beach glass mohair locks. The colors she uses are gorgeous.

Turtle said...

love the natural browns but beach glass (just the name even!) makes me drool a bit!

I hope you and your family are doing well. Best wishes.

I must say that the Marigold roving is just beautiful. Perfect soft yellows and oranges.

Also like the autumn mohair locks.

Hope everyone is recovering quickly and resting comfortably.

I'm not quite sure what to do with locks, but I'll find out if I win. Then I;ll also know what to do with the lovely Autumn Sky locks.

Sabrina C said...

I've had my eyes on the Bronze Green Hand Dyed Merino Wool Roving. I just love green and that is such a pretty blend. I am just now learning how to spin my own yarns and SmokeyMountainFibers was the first seller that I added as one of my favorites.

Love the seaside and blue planet rovings. I love a lot of things in this shop . . .
