Silver Sun Alpacas Learn to Spin Kit



I am on an incredible high from this past weekend. So much spinning, laughter and good times!

I bet you're thinking you already know which one of the Silver Sun Alpacas listings I'm in love with- the green silkie collection. While, I do love that one, the "Royal" batt is just to die for!!

Ricky from Silver Sun Alpacas should be on your top 10 go-to list of fiber enablers! To prove just what kind of enabler she is, she's put together this wonderful drop spindle kit for a lucky commenter. Because, really, shouldn't you be building another skill set and learning to spin? All the cool kids are doing it ;)

Please visit Silver Sun Alpacas, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week, please make sure you let all of your friends on Facebook, twitter, ravelry etc know about how much you love Silver Sun Alpacas- we'll count it as an extra entry!!

The Wisteria Bamboo Rayon is very pretty, especially the purple.

Perrin said...

I wonder how wisteria would spin up. Looks amazing

Jan L said...

I also retweeted you.

lauraelih said...

Oooh, I like the Spring Twist batt as well!

Galia Lael said...

The Spring Twist is my favorite, and you are right about the Green Silkie!

Twitted too @SpindleDesigns

WOW IT IS ALL SO BEAUTIFUL!! Would love to win this giveaway. I am just learning the basics right now.

I like the .Double Mocha Swirls - Pure Baby Natural Colored Alpaca Yarn

Lael said...

I like the Pinky batt - the natural fibers look lovely, too.

Paulette said...

I absolutely love the Bamboo Rayon
fiber in crayon blue. It makes me feel like I am looking at a taffy cloud in a candy store! Good enough to eat:)

Heather P said...

Jade Green - Bamboo Rayon, Handdyed, The Perfect Trio. But with greem being my favorite color it tends to jump out at me the most.

RoamingKnitter said...

I want to learn to spin so I have my fingers crossed. The Spring Twist with purples and browns is beautiful.

Anonymous said...

Oh, wow! Everything just looks so luscious! It would be a lot of fun to just roll in those fibers, of course we might want to remove the spindles first, that might hurt. I wish I could spin, then I would have a bit more of a reason to spend money on such awesome fibers, like the shiny, silky looking milk protein top or the Bamboo top.
Thanks for the chance,
KJo on Ravelry

Kristen said...

I love the gloss of the bamboo/rayon handdyed!

tripleransom said...

Oh. My. God. The Fuchsia trio with the carbonised and white bamboo fibre. That is the most sensuous-looking stuff I have ever seen. I gave up on spinning long ago, but for that stuff, I would learn!
Louise

Rachael said...

Wow I love the Green Lime selected silkies roving! I think I might just go get me some!

quinn said...

Jade Green all the way! So pretty. I have always wanted to try spinning and this would be so perfect.

Laura E. Jordan said...

I just love the Pinky and Tea Party batts! I fantasized for a long time about having the perfect pink handspun... the closest I ever got was a small skein from PinkPeppercorns back before she sold her wheel. I wanna stick my nose in it!

Elisha said...

How fun! I love all of the bamboo batts. The sheen and depth of color are just gorgeous!

Michelle said...

la la! I love the Royal with the purple and gold tones, lovely.

sherry said...

"Find something that you love" in Ricky's shop...? Uhh, how about EVERYTHING!
You are correct in saying that she should be a 'go to' for anything fiberwise. (I have purchased from her before and will do more in the near future...wonderful person to work with!)

So, fiber and spindle, eh?
Sign me up!

Chandra said...

A beginner's kit is a great idea. I haven't learned to spin yet, but it is on my to do list for this year.

Laurel said...

The royal batt it so pretty and squishy looking, but I could use a learn to spin kit.... I'm still learning.

Heather J said...

I'm eyeing the Royal batt something fierce. It's so lovely.

Obsidian!! <3 it! Great giveaway. Thank you for the chance to win :D

InJuneau said...

I love the Sour Patch - Mulberry Silk Sliver Top, Hand dyed and White, 2 oz. From Silver Sun Alpacas.

Melissa said...

The Crayon Blue roving! My all-time favorite shade of blue, and it's soooo shiny. I'm also thrilled to see another learn-to-spin kit up for grabs - the only thing preventing me from picking up a drop spindle to try it out is a very, very sad little budget.

PenelopeRose said...

The "ALA - Natural Brown Alpaca yarn and Silk, Medium Weight, Very Soft" looks so yummy!

Julia said...

I love the green lime and the tea party!!!

Carlin said...

I love the Green Lime Selected Silkies Roving Collection. Amazing color!

I absolutely love the Bamboo Rayon warm color sampler. Those colors together are making me drool and are so appropriate for the season! What an awesome contest!! I'm PurlVerde on Ravelry and I can also be reached at housemonkeywoo@hotmail.com

HollyInfinite said...

Oh my the Green Lime selected silkies roving collection looks amazing. I love the color green and that just inspires me to learn how to spin.

HollyInfinite said...

Shared on facebook! My friends and family back home will love this stuff and the fact that there is packages so they could learn how to spin is great!

Hillside said...

I love the green silkies roving collection. Perfect for spring (in Australia)

Tera said...

I want want want the bamboo top!

Becca said...

It's been a while since I visited this shop. I'm not going to let that go so long next time, after seeing all of the gorgeous fibers Ricky has added.

I especially love the Wisteria - Bamboo Rayon, Handdyed, White and Black Carbonized, and I'm thinking I might have to join the Princess and the Frog spin-a-long, although I'm not sure how that'll work out, since I just had surgery on my foot. Might have to pick up one of the learn to spin kits, just in case I can't use my wheel, lol.

BunnyKnut said...

I <3 Crayon Blue & Green Lime.

Carol said...

The damask is beautiful.

My first spindle class is this weekend. Can't wait to learn what to do with beautiful things like this.

Zombie Queen said...

I love the Spring Twist batt! So pretty :)

jencie said...

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

Everthing always looks at least twice as beautiful in person as on the monitor. This Lavender - Bamboo Rayon, Handdyed, White and Black Carbonized - 6 oz. could be only half as beautiful and it would still be stunningly gorgeous.

mugginskate said...

I love the Wisteria Bamboo Rayon Handyed, white and black carbonized. So GORGEOUS!!!!@

helenlam said...

The Black Alpaca / Pale Lavender Bamboo top, Soft, Spider Web Collection From Silver Sun Alpacas looks absolutely soft and luscious. I've always wanted to try a fiber with bamboo content!

alystyn said...

I am in LOVE with the Double Mocha Swirls baby Albaca yarn... I need 2 dozen skeins of that to roll around in! :)
