The Good Sheep art yarn giveaway!



I feel like I'm letting you all in on a wonderful secret! We have a new Phattie amongst us, who is currently in Australia, but will be making a huge move to the UK very soon. Helena from TheGoodSheep, is also quite an amazing spinner!

I mentioned on the last video, that the corespun sample was the most even and balanced corespun I had ever seen. It is so touchable, and knittable, I was so pleasantly surprised!

We are giving away this beautiful corespun yarn from TheGoodSheep, but I want to mention that Helena has marked everything in her shop down in preparation for her big move. You can get some gorgeous handspun for incredibly reasonable prices- please take a peek! While you're shopping TheGoodSheep, please find something you love and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for this beautiful art yarn later in the week!

I'm in love with the Rose Garden colorway! Pink and green look so good together. The textures of her yarn are gorgeous.

I really like Rajasthan! I love everything in her shop, but Rajasthan has won my hearth!!

Forget-me-knot said...

I don't think the colorway I'm looking at has a name, but the white, gray blue handspun at the bottom of the listings "Handspun Merino Wool with Alpaca Bamboo and Sparkle" is my favorite. It's so cool and subtle.

EVA SB said...

It is all gorgeous but I especially love the Rajasthan.
