Desert Garden Angora Giveaway!


We're getting very close to the March "Sweet Shop" box, but last month, Jennifer from Desert Garden sent in this amazing set for a giveaway. 2 oz of homegrown angora! "Slate" is a divine gray German Angora and "Granite" is an amazingly silky French Angora.

Jennifer a.k.a. The Theme Queen, has been inspired by the recent events in Japan, to donate a portion of her "I am Woman" SAL sales toward the relief effort. Desert Garden is also a March box participant, so this purchase will also put you in the pot for the big March Superbox Giveaway!

Hop on over to Desert Garden, tell us what your favorites are, and you'll be entered to win this luxurious Angora! Facebook and twitter pings will count as extra entries! Make sure you spread the word about Desert Garden!

I love the colors in the LOCOMOTION Picked Fiber Blend!

Lynn M Best said...

It's either the MOCHA LATTE Hand Dyed Teeswater, or the Plum Berry picked fiber mix, or the African Violets picked fiber blend...too hard to pick just one!

Zombie Queen said...

The veggie medley batt is really cool looking!

Erica said...

My very favorite is the home page - all the cute names! the cute kids in the feeder! the lambkin! Oh wait, I have to pick one product, not the whole adorable site.

I think I'll go with VEGGIE MEDLEY because it's a wonderful green, and

"Two ounces of super fluffy, fantastic gorgeousness! You'll wanna die! Cabbage green, brown, carroty orange, purple and lots of sparkle. Each hugemongous batt contains Romney, Cheviot, Sparkle and Mohair Yarn pieces. These are chunky and chock full of farm fresh fibers!"

says it for me.
