Llady Llama Batt Giveaway!


I LOVE when I get to feature a new phattie here on the blog!! Llady Llama Fiber Co. made a debut in the January box. I'm so pleased with her submissions and fiber! If you will take a look at the shop, there are pages and pages of delicious, lofty, and beautifully dyed fiber, yarn and accessories!!

But the batts!! THE BATTS!!!! Amazing.

I have noticed that sometimes I switch from spinning mostly roving to spinning mostly batts. I think probably because I get comfortable with one technique and stick with it for a while. So, I've been spinning batts lately, and something about batts- really soft lofty batts like LladyLlamaFiberCo batts gets me all fluttery and excited!

We're giving away this gorgeous Chinese new Year batt with Merino, Angora, and silk!! Just visit Llady Llama Fiber Co. Find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. Be sure and twitter and facebook for extra entries!!

I love the creative needle gauge shaped like a llama called Llotis.
I think it would be hard to pick but I'm favoring the one done in the Purple Wood Stain.

cthulhulovesme said...

Llady Llama is somewhat llocal to me (heh). I already own one of the Lluna spindles, and I really enjoy how it spins. I'd love to buy another, honestly-- they're great for laceweight and fingering.
