The Critter Ranch Gorilla Batt Giveaway!


Sue from the Critter Ranch
was inspired by the movie "Gorillas of the Mist" and the lovely silver backed Gorillas that can be found the the African congo. Surprisingly, only a few of our Phatties featured the rainforests of Africa this month! The beautiful black batt is composed of natural black Llama and Alpaca, silver mohair and Llama. The green rainforest batt contains Llama, Alpaca, Bamboo rayon, Mohair, silk and firestar for strength and sparkle.
It's truly lovely carded art!

We're giving away this beautiful batt set. Just visit The Critter Ranch today, find something you love and write about it in the comments section below. We reward extra twittering, fb'ing, plurkng and ravelating with additional entries!

I love space mountain. It's so beautiful I used the photo of it in my "America the Beautiful" treasury on Etsy recently!

The Orchid batt looks so interesting; I don't know how I'd split it up to spin it, there are so many possibilities! I'd already faved the bright and cheerful Violets combed top. And then there's Vines, and Antique Roses, and Fall Trees... I think the question is rather what *wouldn't* I buy if I weren't on a frozen fibre budget until finances are more fluid.

RTed too! @owldaughter

Anne said...

it is raining outside and smacks of fall. When I saw the combed top, baby alpaca in fall tree colors I knew it was going to be a perfect day.

Linda said...

I love the Cloverleaf art yarn. Very pretty.

Melrose said...

Roses in the dark and 80's flashback both look like they'd be a blast to spin!

Angie S. said...

Violets and Lilacs - first of all for the colors, but also because I've never tried Punta wool. That would be a fun experience.

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I'm surprising myself a little by choosing this Combed Top... Falkland.... Orchids and Irises...4oz Hand dyed Braid... as it's not within my ususal spectrum. But I love it. Critter Ranch is one of those shops where it's so hard to leave one page full of beautiful fiber, but you know the next page will have just as much.

Alexander the Great said...

Beautiful colors in all of the batts. Seriously.

One Sheep said...

It was so hard sitting out the giveaways last week, after winning. I can't hold back any longer, I'm going to choose the wonder Vines Falkland Roving.

Kristin said...

Love the seaweed and purple people eater batts. :)

InJuneau said...

I love the Tide Pool roving and the Combed Top... Super wash Merino/Tencel Hand Dyed in Very Blue... 4 oz braids Navy, Turquoise, bright blue.

I still love the Tree of souls yarn, it is just really pretty. I also find the idea of having pet hair into a scarf rather neat.

The Formal Affair truffles are making me drool! Gorgeous color saturation, and I love red and black together. :-)

Carlin said...

I would love to spin the violets and lilacs roving.

Kim said...

Ooh, the formal affair truffles look like a fantastic yarn waiting to happen!

SJS said...

I absolutely love how the baby alpaca and viscose roving in Fall Trees "Spins like worm butter." Awesome! Seriously, though, it's such a pretty colorway, and I like spinning alpaca fiber.

Turtle said...
