WCMercantile bfl/silk mixed berries giveaway!


This BFL/tussah silk is amazing! It's so soft and Stephanie of WCMercantile has dyed these colors to perfection. Our theme as you know for September is Farmer's Market- these are Stephanie's interpretation of mixed berries and oooh I could just eat them! I love the dark jewel tones in fall, they transition to winter really well.

When Stephanie sent these in, she suggested one could hold two or three of these colors together and draft them together creating a barber pole effect. I think that would be really neat to try- you can see her list grab bags every once in a while, or convo her about creating one just for you.

We're giving away this beautiful 3 oz collection today! Just visit WCMercantile, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count extra tweets, facebook updates, blog posts etc as extra entries for helping spread the good word about WCMercantile!

I just fell in love with the Bright green "Farm fresh and supersoft" http://www.etsy.com/listing/46739417/3-oz-kettle-dyed-kid-mohair-roving-farm

This just made my day!

Nuri said...

Aside from being my favorite place to buy natural top, I love her batts. The NOLA batt is my current favorite; it looks like a sunrise over the ocean!

Jen said...

I love WC Mercantile. I have to agree with Nuri, her batts are the best, and the NOLA one is the current one I'm eying also! I also like the deep red of the Americus batt.

Ok Ok how in the world am I supposed to pick just one!!! I pretty much loved most everything!!!!
I have new purchased from there but I will now!!!

Alexander the Great said...

This is really boring, but I'd probably go for the 1 pound of bare merino top. I still haven't gotten very good at spinning, and I think that would help very much with my spinning.

That being said, I'd love to try the whole barberpoling, but you could also spin up each color then make a marled three-ply.

Southern Mystic said...

Yeah, can I have a $100 gift certificate to WC Mercantile plz? Ha! Seriously, though, if I was going to buy something today it would be the camel down and tussah silk! Mmmmm ... Stephanie is JUST AWESOME, and I love an excuse to flit through her shop! Tweeting about this too at southernmystic.jc.

Magan said...

I love WC Mercantile- especially the batts! And check out the Farm Fresh Fiber Kit currently on page 7- great sampler!

The Merino and Tussah Silk Top - Blueberry Blues is my favorite! Soon, very soon I will be spinning with this.

I love the Kettle Dyed Kid Mohair Roving - FARM FRESH and SUPER SOFT in shades of green. It's beautiful and looks like it would be fun to spin.

SJS said...

It is so easy to get lost in this shop! But if I had to pick one favorite, it would be the NOLA batt! However, I can't pick just one, so I would also go for the merino top in Dark Garnet. And Midnight. Oh wow, it's really hard to pick just one!

Karen(Rav's Faeryl) said...

WC mercantile's batts are sheer spinning bliss! :-) I really love the rich tones of their Americus batt. *drools*

I love the silky cashmere DK weight yarn, I have the perfect project for it, but I must dye it first. Oh, it would be so good!!

BFL and tussah!?! Must be a dream to spin. I like her blueberry blues and lilac fields colors.
