Wild Hare Progression Dyed Fiber


Oooh! I'm so excited to be hosting this giveaway! I am smitten with Wild Hare's progression dyed fiber! How fun would it be to spin this? Knit this? Awesome!

Melissa has loads of other spiffy stuff in her shop. She supports local fiber whenever she can, so you can feel good about supporting this fiber artist. And speaking of support... she's got an amazing buy 2 get 1 free sale going on now!!

Please visit Wild Hare today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner very very soon, so please be sure and facebook and twitter about it! Thank you so much Wild Hare for sharing your artistry with us!

There are so many beautiful fibers in her shop, but Silver Fox is calling to me! Plus I would love to be able to get on of those Mach II spinning wheels.

Chris said...

The Silver fox alpaca/merino/silk roving caught my eye right away. I bet it's going to be a popular pick!

Galia Lael said...

I love everything in Melissa's shop, especially the progressive tops. And the GRATEFUL DYED sock yarn is to die for!

Twitted and FB'd

Darcie said...

there are so many pretty things in her shop but the one that caught my eye for sure was the merino superwash top spinning roving in ASHLEY. i may have to talk myself out of buying it. :) or not.

Kelli said...

Wow! I love all of the semi-solids. The spring greens really caught my eye.

Leah said...

The Grateful Dyed roving is beautiful. And Harvest... And Irish Eyes...oh boy.

I've been eyeing Promise for sometime now.

What an awesome shop! I love the silk top in Amethyst and the progression dyed top in Harvest.

The Start-Up Homemaker said...

I love (love love love) the grateful dyed. What a great rainbow!

A. Hiscock said...

It would be easier to list what I *don't* want! But some of my faves are the Spring Greens wool roving, the Silver Fox alpaca/merino/tussah blend, the Irish Eyes BFL, the S'Mores BFL, and the Bengali silk top.

RTed, too!

Allison O. said...

I *love* the felted scarf w/ art yarn embellishment. What a great idea!

justkif said...

I love her scarves (and the spinning wheels of course) but I like the roving spinning hand dyed progression superwash wool top rainbow PROMISE 4 oz.

redzshadow said...

I am a sucker for rainbows. I love the Grateful Dyed colorway! Doesn't matter if it is the roving or the sock yarn. I like them both.

lauraelih said...

So cool! I love progression dyed top, and the Amazon gradient top is also gorgeous!

I especially love the SPARKLER batt for this months Phat Fiber Box. I got a sample in my box and the bursts of color against the black are beautiful!

NancyFancyPants said...

What a beautiful shop! I had the pleasure of meeting Melissa and buying some of her roving (some BFL and some silk that I spun together) and it was lovely. I particularly like the Woodland progressive dyed roving.

Kathy said...

So beautiful... everything! I especially like the Honey Harvest art yarn and the Bittersweet superwash merino. Lovely!

I like this fiber.

CrazyVet said...

So hard to choose... a hard choice between the mulberry silk top hand dyed ruby and the alpaca merino silk top hand dyed crab apple, but if it has to be just one, the first one would be it. Though if I weren´t on a fiber diet, I would get both!

Elly said...

I love the Rainbow Promise roving, so bright and colorful!

I really like roving progression gradient hand dyed wool top HARVEST. I can picture it made up into a lovely, lacey shawl.

Kimberly R. said...

Love the felted scarf w/ art yarn embellishment :)
Thanks!

Melissa Zeffer said...

LOVE GRATEFUL DYED! Absolutely love it! I am such a DeadHead and that colorway is an instant eye catcher! So funny!

Jaguarrior said...

I have so many of her things in my favorites list lol

I always keep coming back to her Bengali colorway, I really need to buy some!!!

Susan F. said...

The Grateful Dyed hand dyed superwash merino sock yarn is so colorful and fun. I also love the BFL fiber in Irish Eyes--St. Patrick's Day *is* right around the corner! But, I also lust after the heavy duty yarn ball winder--because I need a good one.

The Spinning Daisy said...

Oh, I love the Harvest and Sylvan progressive dyed top...and the Garnet BFL and Mulberry Wine sock yarn and many other things. Beautiful!

Rachael said...

Love the smooth merino silk carded spinning batt AMETHYST

Teresa said...

I love, love, love the rainbow progression dyed roving!!

Audrey said...

I'd be hard-pressed to choose between the sea glass roving and the honey-harvest yarn. I could stare at those two all day long!

elendir said...

I really love the LITHOS hand dyed gradient wool roving

FB as well

Tera said...

hand dyed fingering sock yarn merino nylon superwash RARE VINTAGE 400 yds. would make a beautiful pair of socks or shawl. I also would love to give the progression dyed fiber a try!

PixelatedMushroom said...

Oh wow! I love everything! but best of all I think is the BFL wool top (natural coloured) ^_^ so soft looking

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

Love the colors of the hand dyed US wool top spinning felting roving ALIZARIN 4 oz.!

PattyW said...

I love the progression dyed fiber, also. The colors are wonderful and blending them is such fun.

By_defination said...

I love those greens in the rovings: Irish eyes and Spring greens are very much me. Of course as a beginner, Learn To Spin Drop Spindle Kit has a special appeal especially since the cheapest puttogetherbymeviaonlineshopping set is $25, and didn't include a DVD.

Turtle said...

exquisit.... silver fox!

Funhouse Fibers said...

The progression dyed superwash roving in Amazon is gorgeous!
WANT!

ikkinlala said...

I love the Tiger Eye sock yarn - it really does look like Tiger Eye!

Kristin said...

Gorgeous give-away! Also love the Irish Eyes BFL wool top. Would love to spin that!

ZombieCat said...

That is such a great idea! Her hand dyed sock yarn in Rare Vintage is just scrummy!

Judi A. said...

Couldn't take my eyes off the sock yarn in the rainbow colors!! :-)

HI Melissa - It was great to see you in Asheville last weekend. I can say first hand that Melissa's colors are wonderful. Like the Amazon roving? mmmm....

Liz said...

I can't pick just one thing to love... They're all so beautiful!

TinkerTots said...

I love Sylvan (progression dyed). I'm really enjoying trying to figure out how to weave with progression-dyed fibers. I think they would make some fantastic cloth!
