Fleecemakers Fibers Batt Giveaway!


Remember how smitten I was with this Fleecemakers Aurora Borealis batt? It's so gorgeous and sparkly!! I am a little late on posting, as I don't see any in the shop right now!

Don't you feel good about supporting small fiber farms? I know I do. I think I might have preached about buying local and indie a little too much over the weekend, my family was having a hard time listening to me! We can feel good about buying from Elizabeth and her flock- which started as one of her children's 4-H projects!

We're giving away this gorgeous batt set today! Just visit Fleecemakers, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Extra points for facebook and twitter updates about it!

The dyed Cotswold fleece makes my hands long to touch it! How great to flick that or run it through the carder or spin from the tips, or, or, or . . .
I also really, really want the give-away. I unfortunately told my daughter she could have the sample I received, for her to practice her spinning on, thinking I would just buy the full-size for myself. And I missed it!! URG!

This one is easy to answer without even reopening her shop. I've been drooling over her dyed cotswold locks for weeks. I think my favorite is the orange onee, but I honestly can't decide. Considering how popular they seem to be here I guess I better make up my mind about getting them before someone else grabs them.

Btw, I got a sample in my box of that batt and I've been kicking myself ever since for not buying on of the full sized ones.
