Shearlock's Choice for April- Natchwoolie Giveaway!



Last month, while Shearlock was rubbing elbows with the fiber elite at Maryland Sheep and Wool, I sent my felted fiber fairy to visit Brenda at Natchwoolie. She sent in the most amazing baby camel and tussah silk samples! To touch these, must be touching a piece of fiber heaven!
I ran out and bought some immediately and it is still here, unspun, and I am still amazed at the beauty of it.

When I visit Natchwoolie's shop, I feel like I'm coming home. I do love all the sparkle and glitz and wild colors that can be found elsewhere, but sometimes wrapping yourself in natural fibers is just what the Doctor ordered. Like today, I'm staring out at a rainy gloomy spring day and I'm thinking about the soothing softness of this baby camel sitting in my stash.

We're pleased to be hosting a giveaway with 2 winners!! Both winners will receive a 2 oz big version of this delectable baby camel and tussah silk blend in 2 oz each. All you need to do, is visit Natchwoolie, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner later in the week, so be sure and get extra entries by using facebook, ravelry, your own blog, twitter etc and let everyone else know about the yumminess that is Natchwoolie!

Ooh the buttercream! So nice and... buttercreamy. Well named!

Stacy said...

It's kind of a dream of mine to be in a something-of-the-month club, so I have to go with the Bon Bon club!

Carrie said...

I still adore her Aurora Borealis batts!

A Rose said...

I'd love to try the natural cotton swirl!

Melrose said...

Hmmm. . .I already have some of the buttercream! And the hazelnut truffle looks yummy too, and the fawn alpaca! It all looks great :)

Mandii said...

I love the Bon Bon club! All that yummy fiber!

saskia said...

sinfully delicious, lovely

Galia Lael said...

I love the baby camel and tussah silk you're giving away (which I bought and wait for the right moment to spin - it is soooo soft!), and the Aurora Borealis batt, which is both shiny and sparkly and very pure-looking.

Red said...

The Natural Cotton Camel Swirl looks like it would work up beautifully. It all looks divine though really...

Angie S. said...

I want it all so I will choose the Sinfully Delicious Batt Club as my choice!

Kristen said...

Love the creamy look of the BUTTERCREAM 20 percent TUSSAH Silk and 80 percent Merino Natural Colored Approx 4 ounce for Hand Spinning Crafts

One Sheep said...

I love the Black Diamond Bamboo Top. I'd love to win and be able to try such an exotic fiber!

loves2design said...

I love her BLUE HAWAII Silk, Milk and Bamboo Top Naturally Plant Dyed. Reminds me so much of living in Hawaii, of watch the underwater world trough the blue clear water...

Campbell said...

Tri Color Romney Washed Wool Fleece Lights, Multi Color Romney Washed Wool Fleece Darks, RARE EARTH BFL Top...these would give my neutral colors a great boost!

Loving the Milk Chocolate Fine Alpaca! That color is fantastic!

lauraelih said...

Mmmm, I like the Ebony and Ivory alpaca/mulberry silk top. I love alpaca, and it looks glorious blended with that silk.

Jags said...

I want to spin one of these so bad! They look so soft and lovely!

My favorite thing is her Steady Dye it club! I have it now and it is always something really pretty and fun to play with every month!

sherry said...

I love all her 'Fiber of the Month' clubs....she has tons of them! Many different types, amounts available. My particular favorite is the 'Steady Dye It' clubs. All (or most) of the fibers(animal-type) and plant-dyes come directly from her farm. How cool is that?! And the cost is extremely reasonable.
BTW, you CAN actually feel that camel-silk through the monitor, ya know.

Rachael said...

Love the Mini Bon bon six packs!

elendir said...

I'm still in love with the February Phat Fiber sample: MILK CHOCOLATE Yummy FINE ALPACA Top
But I love everything I bought from Brenda... complete yumminess!
(I'm going to FB about this too)

leah said...

Tussah/Camel is one of my favorite blends to spin! And all of her different alpaca tops look like they would be wonderful to spin and knit with!

Rohesia said...

I think I want one of everything.

The Blue hawaii silk/milk/bamboo blend. I love blues, I loved spinning milk fiber, and I am itching to try silk.

Misskatydid on Ravelry said...

I LOVE that beautiful almond cashmere/ merino mix. It just looks so dreamy.

Christine said...

The bamboo and silk suri is soooo pretty in pink!

SJS said...

Oh wow, I would love to try the camel and cotton blends! I didn't score a Phat Fiber box this time around, but that Peach Tree top looks marvelous!

InJuneau said...

I love the ALMOND Cashmere and Superfine Merino Top; it's so lovely looking, and I'm sure it's butter soft.

TinkerTots said...

You just can't go wrong. After getting the camel/silk sample, I keep going back to drool over it!

Zombie Queen said...

I LOVE Natchwoolie's stuff! I really want some of baby camel and tussah silk. I've been drooling over it for a while...

Ed said...

I'm in love with the Blue Hawaii and Black Diamond Bamboo rovings!

CptSnoopy on Ravelry said...

Finding something I like at Natchwoolie is too easy -- not buying ALL of it is the hard part!! I have been in love with the Sushi Club. I got the first shipment last month and it was the most gorgeous fleece!

knitgarden at ravelry said...

I signed up for the sushi club make it raw surprise...so delicious

Buckette said...

I think the Bon Bon Club is a beautiful idea! I like the thought that you just never know what you're gonna get. I bet it would be very inspiring!

Kathy said...

On every page I thought I'd found my favorite! But, I finally decided that the black diamond 100% bamboo is my favorite. I love the shine and can only imagine the heaven of knitting it!

Julie said...

I can always find something at Natchwoolie to drool over! These days, the multi-colored Romney has been calling my name!

heather said...

I want one of the clubs. The bon bon ones would be perfect, but the takeout is too cute.

Turtle said...

those pics look so beautiful! like you could reach through the pc and run your fingers through them, buttercream!

Kathleen said...

Since I haven't seen the Aurora Borealis, I would like to spin it!

cthulhulovesme said...

Great and Small looks luscious, but then again, so does the moorit Shetland. I like the look and feel of the raw Romney as well.

Jessie said...

I love the natural brown Rambouillet fiber!

PogKnits said...

I'm already receiving the Sushi Club... had two shipments already and I love it, but if I had to pick a fave from what's in the shop I think it would be the same yummy stuff as in this giveaway. Can the Random Number Generator be bribed?

Heather said...

Her coal black fine alpaca looks amazing. I may have to get my mitts on that.

fuzzy-slipper said...

Beautiful Blues - Blue Hawaii Silk. I find it hard to resist delicious blues.

Arielle said...

Six Pack Mini BON BON CLUB - Sumptious Sweets for the Fiber Tooth Get a Surprise Six Pack of Mini Bons every month for 12 months -- wow!!! looks like so much fun to spin. Those mini bon bons are so cute!

I love the luster of the ebony and ivory! This shop just makes me want to spin.

Katie said...

That fiber looks amazing, so do the raw fibers from the sushi club!

I can't believe how rich and luxruious this CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE Yummy FINE ALPACA Top 70 Percent Alpaca 30 Percent Tussah Silk oh MY 4 ounces Natural Colored fiber is.

ikisti said...

The honey tussah silk top looks like a dream.

Spinnergirl said...

Love the black alpaca, would love to spin this up!!

Kristin said...

I love so many of them! And, the names make them even more irresistible! I think my top three would be the Hazlenut Truffle, RARE EARTH BFL Top PHAT FIBER MARCH FEATURE Natural Varigation Browns and Creams, and the Baby Camel and Silk mix. I just want to hold some and squeeze it all day. :)

doodlegirl85 said...

I LOVE the Milk Chocolate Fine Alpaca, I bought some a while ago and it's just soft and lovely and I would LOVE to have more.

PenelopeRose said...

I'd love to get my hands in the COAL BLACK FINE ALPACA Top. Gorgeous!

AmyDe said...

Bon Bons - totally adorable! Plus I love the plant dyed fibers - that's difficult to come by.

Shelley Voight said...

I think the Bonbon club is fantastic. 6 mini batts a month for 12 months is better than chocolates :-)

Stephanie said...

I want ALMOND Cashmere and Superfine Merino Top 4 ounces. It looks so soft and cuddly.

Tera said...

HAZELNUT TRUFFLE Yummy FINE ALPACA Top 70 Percent Alpaca 30 Percent Tussah Silk mmmmmm 4 ounces Natural Colored is soooo beautiful!

I am so very tempted by the Sushi club! Those fibers look so soft!

All For Love Of Yarn! said...

What's not to love about her shop! It's like eating candy! I love the hand woven wool rug, too. They are the most durable rugs ever!

sam said...

I really want the 100% angora rabbit roving, I have such a soft spot for soft bunny fiber! Also, the peach tree merino roving is really nice!!

Carlin said...

Oh my goodness. So much soft georgeousness.... my favorite is probably the Honey Tussah 100% Silk Top.

Emy said...

Ooh...the Sterling alpaca and tussah silk is gorgeous! I suspect that it's what my hair's going to look like when I go grey. ;)

Heather said...

Wow, the "Sterling" alpaca/silk looks so luscious. And the perfect name too...

Shawn said...

Oh my! That mini bon-bon club is delicious! I just want to eat those little fiber sweets.

gabriellemarin said...

blue Hawaii, naturally dyed milk & bamboo, wow.

Esther said...

There is so much to love

My favourite is
HAZELNUT TRUFFLE Alpaca & Tussah Silk

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

If I sort my fiber stash by seller, what I've got from Natchwoolie definitely takes up the largest space. But still, I think there's something missing, and I think that might just be the buttercream ...

MarciaViola said...

I love all the blacks in the shop, you don't see them too often. Beautiful.

dixiemaiden said...

I would love to spin some of her tussah silk top.

morgaine24 said...
