Friends in Fiber Cheeky Fairy Yarn Giveaway!



A new phat shop for you to explore!!! Jan and Peg and Friends in Fiber and live by the motto "Spin Free or Dye"! Isn't that the cutest thing you've heard in a long time?! When I visit the Friends in Fiber shop, I can see they're having fun with what they do. It's so nice to support folks who truly love what they do and create with joy.

pssst! They just listed some really beautiful lavender wands too! I'm so tempted by these, even though I have lots of homegrown lavender here :)

Today we're giving away this beautifully spun "Cheeky Fairies" yarn spun by Peg. It's a beautiful jewel-tone corriedale with just a hint of sparkle here and there. I keep picturing this knit up as mittens or gloves. Please visit Friends in Fiber, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a name tomorrow, so be quick! Make sure you use twitter, facebook, plurk and ravelry to spread the good word about this adorable shop- we'll count that as an extra entry if you do.

The merino silk is gorgeous, also the lavendar wands are a nice way to scent drawers & what-not.

I like the little needlefelted bunny!

Tasha is the cutest bunny- I had a angora bunny when I lived in Whales- his name was Oliver. I really miss the fiber and the loose and spun fiber looks so beautiful. Thanks for sharing- after my stash clean out I know where to come!

Trudi said...

The hand knit soap container with the soap nuts is really fabulous! What a great way to wash clothing. But it was hard to pick, Friends in Fiber has such a wonderful array of items.

The super yummy Corriedale spinning batt in deep forest is calling to me.

Carlin said...

My favorite is the Easter Bonnet painted roving.

Love the Handspun Merino/Silk in the Blue colors!

I love the Handspun Merino/silk in the seafoam greens & blues. I think the Waterfall scarf would look great in this color. It was her July Phat Fiber sample.

sherry said...

Is it really July, already?! Wow.

Anywho, I didn't think I was familiar with Friends in Fiber. Thanks for pointing me towards the 'discovery'. That's what this is all about, right?

I liked seeing their combo/smooth batts. The one with silk is my fav..nice and shiny. It looks like a dream to spin with.

Heather said...

The Wesleydale/Corriedale Batt is beautiful.

may knits said...

I love the angora/cashmere handspun. Sounds really luxurious.

Turtle said...

I love the Corriedale Spinning Batt 4 oz. Deep Forest. YUM!

Tara said...

I almost bought the Easter Bonnet colorway the other day, but the fiber budget is basically non-existent. Very pretty!

Jean Ashley said...

The Angora Handspun yarn would be my fave--I love knowing the name of the animal that provided the fiber!

Allison von Berg said...

Angora/Cashmere Handspun Yarn....I wish I could feel it over the internet!

MLJ1954 said...

the merino/silk in blues and greens is beautiful . . . and I agree, it would make a lovely scarf.

http://www.etsy.com/listing/50291342/merino-4-oz no name on this colorway, so I think I just call it I WANT THIS FIBER!!!!

Marlitharn said...

Oh, I'm having fantasies about the angora/cashmere "Jasmine in the Dusk" - a scarf from that would probably never leave my neck.

Debra said...

I'm picturing a few of the Lavender Tea Bag Sachets wrapped up in a square of pretty fabric and tied with a gauzy bow as a really nice hostess or thank you gift or you could place one inside a hand knit gift item.

Karen(faeryl) said...

Those golden angora/cashmere batts are amazing! I'd love a chance to smoosh-um, er, *spin* them. :-)

Mandii said...

I love the rovings they offer, such pretty colors!

Southern said...

Definitely that blue and purple roving, the superwash BFL! I do love me some BFL, it's my BFF.

Forget-me-knot said...

That purple handspun BFL really tickles my fancy.

sokeripupu said...

Connie said...

The lavender wands, the felted flower, and the Corriedale Handspun or Bluefaced Leicester...as you can see, I could go on and on.
