WCMeracntile Hand carded rolags giveaway!


I think I'm still on a WCMercantile high! It was so amazing to see Steph's shop and to meet her! I was also privileged to me a wonderful young woman named Katie from SandyHillFarm, also in TX and she is the one who hand carded all of the luscious samples in the August box!

Speaking of samples, these are a gorgeous blend of wool, farm raised mohair locks and silk in the most amazing sunset colors. I don't see this particular set in the shop right now, but Stephanie is such a warm and friendly person, it would be easy to message her and ask for a recreation. I recently spun some of the Flying Wright Farm silky mohair- (also hand carded by Katie) and it was just dreamy!

We're giving away this beautiful rolag set! Please visit WCMercantile today, find something you love, come back and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week, but be sure and let your friends on FB, twitter, plurk and ravelry know about this giveaway too.

spinning wheel, drum, or the purple fiber

Rudy's Mom said...

Having seen those rolags in person.....that would be what I want!! Second choice would be the 3 oz Kettle Dyed Kid Mohair Roving in the deep blue and green colors. Luscious!

Deb at Merciful Hearts Farm said...

The African Sunset rolags look like a joy to spin.

Angie S. said...

What DON't I love about WCMercantile? My favorite item in the shop at the moment? The Ashford Fine Tooth Drum Carder with Packer Brush because I dream of the day when I can afford a drum carder!

lauraelih said...

Mmm, I like the Arlo batt: just enough texture

EVA SB said...

I love the Merino Aubergine top.

elendir said...

I like the Arlo batt a lot (but I so covet a Majacraft Rose!)

Posted on FB as well.

Anne-Line said...

Wow lots of great stuff! What I dream of is a spinning wheel!

Tara said...

I do like the Fenberry Grove fiber, but I am definitely bookmarking this store!

I thought I loved the hand carded rolags the most. But then I ran across the Dan Spindle Lace Weight Spindle. I'm seriously going to have to think about getting one of those.

Campbell said...

I just love everything I've gotten from WC Mercantile, as my recent purchases can attest, but those African Sunset rolags are just too beautiful. We used the African Sunset theme ourselves this month and just love the brilliant colors.

Turtle said...

so many lovelies! of course the wheels are gorgeous but i do adore that african sunset!

Caroline said...

Besides the rolags?! I hope she has a few in stock during the spin-in in September. Otherwise, I'm drooling over the Strawberry lemonade batt.

Anne said...

sunset rolags rock

Jessie said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these rolags! In fact, they inspired my September phat! :)

ashley0607 said...

Going to her shop is dangerous. LOL. I like it all! But, I really like the Cayon Lake Merino roving and those rolags are fabulous!

zemestani said...

oh man, I love those! totally my colors.

I'm also loving the arlo batt in the shop.

Holly said...

The Majacraft Little Gem Spinning Wheel has managed to steal my heart. Partly because I want a spinning wheel all my own (able to travel easily is a must), and partly because WOW it's pretty.

Pam said...

My favorite item (besides all the fiber lol) would have to be the Majacraft Little Gem. Ahhh dreams :D

Linda said...

I love the 2 oz Rolags - African Sunset. Just beautiful.......

Nothing says love like hand-carded rolagas, I always say. ;-)

That Dan drop spindle looks so light and cute! I would love to use that to spin some of that natural mocha cashmere top. How luxurious!

Zombie Queen said...

I've spun the recycled sari silk before and it was a blast! I would love to get my hands on some again.

Kristen said...

I like the 4 oz. Merino Wool Top - Aubergine. Gorgeous deep color.

Heather said...

I'm still loving "Nola" so much! I just need to break down and buy some. :)

(Although I'd also love an Ashford drum carder...)

Dagny said...

Ooooh African Sunset!!

Katrina said...

I'd be completely happy with any of the drum carders!

Heather J said...

I want a Dan spindle. The rolags would be perfectly beautiful to spin.

CinderLisa said...

I like the lime green mohair. Looks yum! Of course one of the wheels wouldn't hurt...

Karen(faeryl) said...

The Dan spindle's amazing! Such beautiful, sleek lines.

Magan said...

So cool!! I've never spun from rolags before!

I love WC Mercantile batts. Right now I'm drooling over Nola- love those sunset colors.
