Silver Sun Alpacas Drop Spindle Kit Giveaway!


Whew! We drove most of the day to get away from the blizzard that is sweeping across country! I think we may be in safe territory now- or at least perhaps we won't get sacked as hard as other places! Times like these make me really glad I know how to spin, because it comes in handy for entertainment (and warmth) purposes when the power is out.

Ricky from Silver Sun Alpacas has sent in a gorgeous spindle kit giveaway! It's slightly different than the one pictured, but you will get a spindle, instructions, gorgeous alpaca fiber all in an organza bag. Perfect for beginners and experienced spindlers alike!

I adore Silver Sun Alpacas- especially Ricky's batts! For some reason, she's always got just the perfect amount of sparkle and softness!

What do you like in Silver Sun Alpacas shop? Let us know in the comments section, and you'll be entered to win this beautiful spindle kit! Make sure you let your friends on Facebook and twitter know about this! You'll get extra entries for social networking.

Saige said...

OMG such loveliness! How could you pick just one? Having said that, I find myself drawn to the Fire Red Spinning Fiber.

Kristin said...

Mmmmmmm...the Blueberry Grapes - Spinning Fiber, Batt caught my eye right away!

Melissa said...

I'm not usually a red/pink person, but the way they're handled here are too lovely! Garnets and Pearls is almost too pretty in roving form to even want to make into yarn.

Turtle said...

i have to say i still adore lucy in the sky with diamonds :)

Lilm4105 said...

The pinks and browns of the Tea Party batt are really pretty.

Princess Talana said...

I would have to pick a grab bag from the shop. As a brand new spinner I am interested in trying anything and everything because it's all new.

I'm not a big fan of pink, but when it's paired with brown, like in the Tea Party batt, I love it!

Liz said...

The prices on the bamboo top are excellent, and I really like that there are kits AND grab bags! Lots of great stuff to choose from!

Galia Lael said...

It's hard to choose... I love the Harry batt and the Victorian Love fibers. And the bamboo trios.

I love the Arthur batt - such cool and restrained colours.

I usually dont do pink- but I ADORE the Victorian Love set. Unfortunately I am a bit low on funds right now.

knittaroo said...

Wow, the kit with the Fire Red spinning fiber is amazing! So much deliciousness in that shop...

With the ice storm outside, I am so ready for spring. I think the DAFFODAILS - Drum Carded Batt would be perfect to spin on a day like today.

Erin said...

Ooh, I adore the Redwood Forest Batt. Love!

Stacey said...

the tri colored bamboo is wonderful, there's a few of them but the fuchia one and rose one caught my eye!

I love Silver Sun Alpacas Drop Spindle kits especially the beautiful handyed options they come with. Nothing says It's time to start spinning then a beautiful shade of roving. I especially like the fire red which is surprising since I normally hate red.

Chris said...

Double coffee swirls, please. Could I have a little whipped cream on that?

skaro964 said...

This is a hard one today, I love the .Eggplants - Mulberry Silk Sliver Top, Hand dyed and White, 3 oz and the .Rose - Bamboo Rayon, Handdyed, White and Black Carbonized - 4.5 oz. and the Victorian Love - Romantic Selected Spinning Fiber, Batt From Silver Sun Alpacas. I am just learning to spin and it all looks so good.

Ms.Curdy said...

Blueberry grapes & lavender vanilla sound good and look pretty!

Marianna said...

I really like the eggplants-mulberry silk silver one, it is so beautiful.

Kimberly R. said...

Love the Natural Brown Alpaca yarn and Silk, Medium Weight, Very Soft :)
Thanks!

alvinearl said...

i like the spindle kit with the fire red spinning fiber. i used to spin years ago, but would like to learn again. never used a spindle, had a spinning wheel before.

alicats mom said...

I am strangely drawn to los olivos. some thing about the sheen of the fiber and the shade of that green is exquisite. I am just a beginner with a spindle made with a cd but I can just imagine this fiber's beauty once it is spun.

I love the colors in this, it's quite unusual.

Samantha said...

I love the Los Olivos mulberry silk sliver. It's gorgeous!

chris said...

I love the sparkle in all the batts, but am crushing on the Arthur batt. I've never been one for sparkly things, but since I've learned to spin, I feel like I can really explore the sparkly side of my personality without it getting too disco, if you know what I mean ;-)

SJS said...

My favorites are the Obsidian batts and the Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds batts! Lovely!

InJuneau said...

I love the .Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - Beatles Inspired, Half Smooth Spinning Fiber, Batt From Silver Sun Alpacas!

dragonxser said...

I love the idea of a spindle & fiber kit! That damask batt takes my breath away too!

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I think it would be fun to learn to spin with the Pinky spinning fiber. It reminds me of cotton candy.

Linda said...

Where do I start? I always have a bunch of their stuff in my etsy "favorites". The Blueberry Grapes spinning bat looks just yummy tonight!

jess c. said...

id take any of the angeline in a heart beat but that crayon blue trio is pretty awesome too!

jess c. said...

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

I was instantly drawn to the Silver Bullet batt.

Judi A. said...

Oh my goodness - everything is beautiful! I wanted to reach right into the photos and touch every one of the fibers. Of course I liked "Pinky" best, but also really liked "Midnight Sunset" and "Garnets & Pearls"

Kymberli Mundwiller said...

I really like the Blueberry Grape batts but I like them all!

Colorado Knitter said...

What isn't to love! The colors are so vibrant and inviting. If I had to pick though I really like the Los Olivos (sp?) Mulberry Silk.

teammom said...

Swirls Alpaca / Silk Roving, Medium Brown/Beige, Natural colors - Spider web collection looks like a dream to spin!

Carlin said...

My favorite is the Annabell batt.

Stacey said...
