WC Mercantile Bonfire at Night Fiber Giveaway!


OMG is this stuff gorgeous, or what?! Bonfire at Night is a deep Navy merino and a gorgeous, glossy bamboo in gold. I would LOVE to see this spun up- I think it would be gorgeous plied together.

If you haven't visited WCMercantile lately, be prepared to be overwhelmed- but in a very very good way. It's like a big candy shop for spinners! Marcus and I were fortunate to be able to visit over the summer and it was truly amazing!

Please visit WCMercantile, find something you love, and post about it below. We'll be giving away this gorgeous fiber! This is part of our giveaway bonanza- please keep checking back everyday!

I love the Bonfire at night and the cute dye your own silk caps kit. What a neat way to jump into dying.

I would love to have the superwash panda top. I recently tried spinning some and absolutely love it. It almost spins by itself.

WC Mercantile has always lots of gorgeous fiber to choose from... Today I choose the Rhythm and Blues Merino and Tussah Silk Top (with a special mention for the Seaweed batt: I've already bought two but every time I see one I'm tempted to buy it!)

FB as well

Cozy Knitting said...

Gosh! This one is so hard. I loved the Seaweed in that pretty green, and I like the Lilacs and Lilies in the merino. I don't know. I like them all.

Magan said...

I love love love Bonfire at Night and the Seaweed batts! And now I see they are offering 2 oz. Mystery Batts which is *awesome*!

Southern Mystic said...

Ahhh, WC Mercantile, I love you so ... Today, my favorite item was the very first thing! That hand painted BFL is just the thing for spinning by the fireside in the evening!

Amanda said...

Oh wow, the merino mixes are incredible to look at. I can't choose one, they're amazing.

How about the 4oz Merino and Tussah Silk Top in Mackenzie Tartan.

Becca said...

There's so much to love in this shop! Someday I hope to get to visit it in person, but not until I save up some extra money, lol. I love the colors in the Artisan Dyed Blue Face Leicester and Tussah Silk Roving - Mixed Berries.

Paulette said...

So many great things, but I especially love their Tussah Silk Combed Top - Hand Painted fiber. The colors are gorgeous and vibrant.

Heather P said...

So much to choose from, but I managed to narrow it down to the 4 oz. Merino and Tussah Silk Top - Mackenzie Tartan.

redzshadow said...

Everything I have gotten from WC Mercantile is wonderful! I would have to get some more baby camel and silk. So soft!

I live just 20 minutes away from WC Mercantile, so I get to bask in their fiber anytime. My latest favorite is their dye your own Merino Tencel yarn. I have 2 sets of their Seaweed art batt and have purchased several of their dyed merino rovings. Everything is always wonderful!

Jessica said...

I love the felting wool artists palette.

Red said...

I love everything they have, truly. So I'll pick something at random and say my favorite is... the 4 oz Merino Wool Top in Merlot. =)

dancingspindles said...

I like the "Lilacs and Lilies" Merino roving.

Amanda said...

Hint of Lilac Merino and tussah silk is definitely my favorite, it reminds me of a frozen lake surrounded by snow.

AnneMarie said...

I love the over-dyed BFL/tussah silk rovings - the heathery goodness is calling my name!

sherry said...

Whadaya mean 'find' something to love about WC Mercantile? Uhhh...just about everything!

They were one of the first stores on Etsy that I faved. Very affordable pricing, lovey colors, a wide range of fibers, as well as, equipment to play with those fibers!

Zombie Queen said...

I love the Kettle Dyed Kid Mohair Roving. The colors are awesome and it looks so soft!

The 8 ounces Mulberry Silk Sliver would be great for a silk addict.

Hey, blue and gold! Go, Bears!

My favorites are the handpainted rovings near the top of the shop, the Falkland and these BFL-tussah blends. What beautiful heathered shades!

The Julep merino top looks fantastic!

FBed and tweeted.

Tia said...

Those hand-painted tops are agonizingly beautiful. I especially like the subtle rainbow hues!

Kristin said...

These guys have some awesome stuff, and I love the "Free Shipping"! I've got my eye on some of the Falkland wool top dyed with some rich pinks, oranges and hints of green. Looks like a rose all wrapped up.

knittaroo said...

The Muscadine Grape colourway of the merino and tussah silk top is gorgeous. Love it!

Bev Love said...

The WC Mercantile undyed and natural colors really appealed to me. I thought this Dune colorway was very pretty.

Weaver said...

I'm really tempted by the 4oz Falkland top hand painted in the pinks, grey-ish teals, and browns colorway. I've never used Falkland wool before, and these colors just are so beautiful together.
It's this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62378885/4-oz-falkland-wool-top-hand-painted

wpintx said...

This is my favorite fiber store. Stephanie and her mom, Petra, are the best!

Wow there are some really gorgeous colours even in the undyed but my favourite is the Merino Wool Top in Aubergine.

The recycled carded sari silk is so cool...you could spin such beautiful yarn from this
