Hampton Artistic Yarns batt giveaway!




Last week, you saw me spinning a very pretty blue/green batt from Hampton Artistic Yarns. I thought I would share with you the final product. I was really happy with how it spun up. I was able to spin it fairly thin and chain ply it. I really enjoyed spinning the silk noils and loved all the sparkle!

I feel Deb is one of the greatest talents on Etsy today. Her color sense is amazing! I am a firm believer in using quality materials to create with, and H.A.Y's fiber is top notch!

We're giving away this beautiful 3 oz batt set called "Jumping in the leaf pile". Isn't it great?! Just visit Hampton Artistic Yarns, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Remember, we'll count those social networking pings like facebook, ravelry, twitter etc as extra entries-just let us know you did it!

The Flannel Shirt merino has such a fun color combination

The Ferosh merino top really calls my name.

Kathleen said...

Tough decision between her unique Treasure Balls and the fiber sampler.

KT said...

I like the Treasure Balls - I'm always a sucker for random color and such! This is like a grab bag but pre-drafted (perfection)!

This would be a good day for a 'Naked' Fiber Sampler Pack. Followed, perhaps, by some 'Golden Delicious' milk fiber? Yes, that would be just what I need!

A Rose said...

Milky Buns, 'Moody Blues' batt is yummy!

Dawn E said...

I like the H.A.Y. treasure balls. What a great idea and oh, so pretty!

ashley0607 said...

I am liking the "Celestial" bun batts. I think spun up they would look really cool.

And I totally agree with Jess (jessecreations) about not joining her SAL again! When am I going to learn? LOL.

sherry said...

Colorwise...love the 'Flannel Shirt' one.
Fiberwise....I haven't tried the Milk Protein or Corn Fiber, yet.
Big Phat HINT!!!

You always find the best shops! One of my fav items in this shop is the hand painted sock yarn, Love-in-idleness. Nature inspired colors. LOVE IT!

I was actually just looking at her shop the other day. =) I like the Celestial colorway; colors you might not normally think would go well together but they do.

The Merino Wool Top, 'Orchid', 4.0 oz. is a gorgeous colorway.

Oh man, where do I start?? The CELESTIAL fiber buns are divine, and I'll definitely be picking up some merino sampler packs at some point- those colors are so vibrant.

There is such a variety of color in this shop. For sure, there is something for everyone. The Celestial Fiber Buns look fun to try. The Treasure Balls look so fun. I just have to give that a try. But, the Moody Blues Milk Fiber has sent me over the moon.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Milk Latte Moody Blues. Your description of how you prefer it as a blend in a BATT as opposed to roving or top was VERY interesting. Lovely work.
