Gears, butterflies and Roses fiber giveaway!


Doesn't llama, cashgora, tussah silk, bfl and angelina sound like a recipe for a good time?! I was totally blown away by The Critter Ranch's October Phat Fiber contribution! Sue created a beautiful digital montage and then worked from those colors to create these beautiful art-yarn kits. They're so delectable and the colors are just amazing! I was fortunate to be able to spin a little last night and hopefully I'll ply it later tonight and be able to finish this in time for fiber friday :)

I'm pretty much have a fiber crush on The Critter Ranch- especially her last2 Phat Fiber features- just amazing!!!

We're giving away a small art yarn kit for you! Just visit The Critter Ranch, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below here. We're going to be drawing for a winner later in the week, please remember to FB and Twitter etc for extra entries!

Sangria Citrus Punch is exactly my colors!!

Barbara said...

I've got to admit that this is one time that I really couldn't decide because all the colors are so amazing. I do like the Fall yarn though but I couldn't decide on any of the batts or combed etc. Terrific shop that I'll have to mark as a place to go to for yarn.

So many lovely choices. I think I have to say the Bright Retro Hand dyed Llama Fiber Batt is my favourite though. It's so unique compared to most batts I've seen lately, and reminds me of late spring and easter. Yummy!

garilynn said...

Purple people eater is my favorite at this moment. Having met Decadent Clouds in person, it would be difficult to choose between them!

Heather P said...

I would love to make some fingerless gloves out of her Bright Retro Hand dyed Llama. Those would bright up dreary winter days.

Tara said...

There is always good things to be found from the critter ranch.... I really like the Sangria Citrus Punch colorway, I bet it would spin up into some pretty yarn

Mary said...

I'm in love with the colors of the Fiber batt in midway lights.

Alison said...

I love TheCritterRanch! I just ordered from her! I really like all of her samplers. They are so much fun to play with and are a great pick-me-up for when I miss the PhatFiber box!

Lael said...

The batts are lovely - the rovings - Tide Pool, Fall Trees - can't pick just one.

Perrin said...

I really want to try spinning straight silk but haven't tried it yet.

I love the fiber mix. I love all the blending going on in roving.

Kristin said...

Mmmmm...love the Bright Retro hand dyed batt! Looks like some kind of candy that we used to have as kids...or that was on the OLD version of Candy Land.

Tera said...

Combed Top... Baby Alpaca and Viscos...Hand dyed in Fall Trees... 4 oz braid reminds me of a crisp fall day. It is soooo beautiful!

Knittaroo said...

I love the Great Pumpkin fiber batt, great colour!

knitmomma said...

This was really tough this time, but I think my top choice is Art Batt... Spring Hycinths... 2.2 oz Llama, super fine Merino, Silk (both tussah and Mullberry) Bamboo and firestar.

Of course, it might be Combed Top... Baby Alpaca and Viscos...Hand dyed in Fall Trees... 4 oz braid...so very autumn!

Or perhaps Inspineration ....August Victorian Elegance...4 oz of Fiber art Insperation....some fibers include Merino. Superwash wool, BFL, Llama, Alpaca and more. Looks so fun!
