The Critter Ranch Autumn roving giveaway!


Sue from the Critter Ranch has captured perfectly the beauty of fall flowers in her Mums and Sunflowers roving and her delicious pumpkins, gourds and tomatoes roving! Deep reds, warm oranges, yellow ochre and a smidge of leafy green to round it out- does it get any more perfect?
Oh, I didn't mention it's made from Llama, Alpaca, firestar, bamboo, tussah silk and angelina!

Sue's shop is chock full of those fall fiber flavors and colors- go take a look!

We're giving away a chance to taste (1 oz each) both of Sue's colorways for September. Just visit The Critter Ranch, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week, but be sure and spend some time retweeting/fbing as we'll count that as an extra entry for you!

Thank you for this gorgeous giveaway, Sue!
