H.A.Y. Orchid Merino Giveaway!


I can't tell you the self-restraint I've had to practice while writing this blog post. Whenever I go visit H.A.Y. I melt and go all gooey inside and then my click to buy finger starts twitching!

Deb is what I like to call a "Charter" phattie- she's been with us a !time and it makes me really proud! Her sense of color is other-worldly! Why, just look at this 'Orchid' merino we're giving away- doesn't it have the same colors as those hard-to-grow species?

We're giving away this delectable braid today, just visit H.A.Y. , find something that you love (I know, I ask too much sometimes!) and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing soon, so don't delay!

Oh, the 'Beach Cottage' merino/silk is so beautiful! And the 'Namaste' Falkland looks exactly like the type of thing I'd love to spin to relax... it would make a lovely hooded scarf, I'm thinking.

Tara said...

So much pretty to choose from! I do really like the colorway being given away, but Organic merino, hand dyed, 'Fresh Melon' is beautiful too

Laurel said...

The Organic merino 'Reef' is my favorite colors. It's all so pretty!

Kristin said...

Man there's a lot to love there!

When I first clicked, there was the "SERENE", sock blank, and I thought that had to be it. But then I saw some of the color-based sampler packs, the rainbow leicester locks, the "Ferosh" art batt. She definitely has a way with color, and I like it!

Tera said...

Falkland wool top, 'Namaste'. hand dyed, 4 oz. is soooo beautiful!!!

Angie S. said...

The Sunflowers art batt is really fabulous!

craftydragon said...

I just love Rustci, Reef and cloudy day. I would really like to see them spun up. Gorgeous!

Red said...

All of the Scrappy Treasure Art Batts look wonderful but I think batt numbers 24, 28 and 30 are my favorites. So many pretty things though, it's hard to choose any favorites!

garilynn said...

I love the Avatar handspun.

Jaguarrior said...

Lovely colors!

I think my favorite thing in the shop is the Fresh Melon organic merino. The colors are gorgeous!

Knittaroo said...

So pretty and delicious, it's really hard to choose.
I love the 'Moody Blues' Milky Buns Milk Latte Spinning Fiber. (Mmm, latte and buns...)

Rainlover said...

holy cow, that stuff is sooooooo pretty. The "Aquatic" just made me squee a little lol. I will def have to bookmark that etsy store.

tapmouse said...

Loving the Panda Top in Lush Valley! The golden cocoons are quite intriguing, too! You are right- hard not to click and buy! if only i had money in my account!-lol!

rebelhousewife said...

I really want some of the Natural Golden Wild Silk Cocoons, they are beautiful. Can just imagine spinning them into something, or using them with my felting.

Alexander the Great said...

I'd love to try any of those art batts. They look beautiful!

Galia Lael said...

The Scrappy Treasure art batt is the first item to jump and call my name. I also like the Johnny Jump Up braid. Oh, and Rustic too. And Ferosh... so many lovelies, it's hard to pick!

Anne-Line said...

So much to choose from! The art batts looks like great fun to spin!

burnt rain said...

I think Namaste and Aquatic are my favourite. Such interesting combinations. Beautiful.

Lisa said...

There is absolutely no way I could pick a favorite. They are all so beautiful. I do like the Rustic, but the Ingeo is lovely, as well as Amethyst Geode. Going to this shop to "pick" one would be impossible! Love them all.

elendir said...

Never easy to choose among H.A.Y.'s fiber... this time I go for the "Lush Valley" Panda top.

FB as well

Love the Johnny Jump UP BFL. :) But, I could go for just about any hand dyed roving. Really. Beautiful stuff!

lauraelih said...

Oh, I like the 'Johnny Jump Up" BFL. I'm on a BFL kick again...

butterflyears said...

Alright, all I can say is that I bookmarked this site! Everytime I thought I found my favorite, something else caught my eye! The colors are very unique...I love the blends. The color combinations are unusual, yet seem so right together!

alittleweirdo said...

Too many pretty colors to choose from! Especially like the Rustic colors (domestic wool hand dyed mill ends). The organic merino also sounds heavenly (especially like Cloudy Day).

Michelle said...

I really like the braid called Reef. They remind me of patina'd copper, weather worn and beautiful! I am sure it would spin into something lovely.

Silja said...

ooooh I love the artbatts, and especially Scrappy treasure batt nr 24! *DROOOOOOL*

Kimberly R. said...

Love the Hand Painted Sock Blank, 'SERENE', fingering weight yarn :)

Oh my gosh, I am so in love with sunflowers and blue skies. Such a beautiful blend of colors. That cheery yellow, that light and puffy bluish white, that down to earth brown. It's so wonderful.

Alison said...

Wow! I love the scappy art batts and the "Rustic" mill end roving.

I'm in love with Scrappy Treasure Batt no. 26. It reminds me of camping. The trees (gorgeous green), grass (raffia) and the campfire (yellow and orange). Just beautiful!

EVA SB said...

I love the BFL wool top in Johnny Jump Up and also the handspun art yarn in Borealis.

vickie said...

I love all the spinning stuff, but the instant gratification of the sock blank.....well....what can I say?

bethgraced said...

Panda Top hand dyed "lush valley"... YUM!

Kathleen said...

I've always liked the Moody Blues, so why not go with the Moody Blues milky buns.

I am loving the Pansy Explosion superwash BFL. What socks that would make!

mugginskate said...

The Borealis art yarn is extremely pretty! I love it!

helenlam said...

I like the Milk Latte Spinning Fiber, Milky Buns, 'Moody Blues', 2.0 oz. I've yet to spin with Milk fiber and this looks like a great way to try it!

andrea said...

Hey..I love how the colors of the yarn on the H.A.Y. site just jump off the page! Stuningly colorful. I would be proud to knit any of them!!

One Sheep said...

I love this Domestic Wool, hand dyed, mill ends, 'Rustic'. 4 oz., great blend of colors.

Rose said...

This woman really does have a great eye for color! I really love all the combinations she has on the website. I really liked the Organic merino, hand dyed, 'Reef', 4 oz. though. It totally looks like a rocky beach with waves on it! It's amazing!
