Counting Sheep Farm Tencel sock yarn giveaway!


I am really really excited about this box! There is a lot of luxury fibers being used! This month, Counting Sheep Farm has sent in a lovely 50/50 merino/tencel sock yarn in "Twilight" colorway- which is a gorgeous steel gray, dusky blue and hints of black and the tencel gives it that glossy shine!

I just love Rachel from the Counting Sheep Farm! I just realized she has an entire section of her shop dedicated to the numerous Phat Fiber colorways she's submitted! Love that!

We're giving away this delicious skein of sock yarn to a lucky commenter. Just visit Counting Sheep Farm, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing later in the week and would appreciate any extra social networking you can do to help spread the good word!

I like the Hand Dyed Fiber, Cormo, Alpaca and Silk- GOLDEN, the colors look very rich to me

It is a hard decision between My8kidsmom's hand dyed fingerling weight of Silly Pirate and the hand dyed silk yarn in Melon. I like the bold bright colors in both of these colorways.

The "Hesitation" batt has me drooling. The pink, black and gray would look divine spun up.

I love Rachel's shop!!! The give away yarn is AMAZING! If I was shopping today, my cart would contain the "how blue can you make me?" yarn Sea Mist worsted that I have been eyeballing forever, and hum lets see definitely a roving thrown in for good measure. LOL.

This shop has put me on a pirate kick! What do pirates make sweaters out of? YARRRRRN!

OK, but seriously, my favorites are the fiber in Dread Pirate Penelope and the yarn in Silly Pirate! Fun!

I saw the orange cormo fiber and fell in love, but since I don't really do much spinning yet, I'd be more likely to buy the gumdrop fingering weight yarn. Beautiful!
