A Dyeing Wish Fiber and Spindle Giveaway!


For our beautiful February box, Angelique of A Dyeing Wish created a gorgeous colorway inspired by the birthstones of her own family members. She lovingly calls this "Family Jewels". It's really gorgeous, beautifully prepared with hints of nylon firestar for strength.
I keep picturing this spun up... a beautiful gemstone barberpoled yarn... yum!

Speaking of spinning! Did I mention we're also giving away this beautiful handcrafted spindle? Angelique is a woman of many talents!!!

We're giving away this beautiful fiber and spindle set! Please visit A Dyeing Wish today, find something you love, and come back here to the blog and write about it. We'll be counting your facebook and twitter updates about this as extra entries, so be sure and do your part before the end of the week!

I have been wanting some 100% silk, and her Opulence lace looks just perfect, perhaps in Redwood forest

Wow, I love the blues and greens of the silk Lizzy. I haven't tried spinning silk yet, but this is very tempting.

tiamatgreen said...

So many beautiful things in her shop. It was difficult to pick a favorite, but I think I have to go with the "Lizzy" tussah silk. What a fantastic rich color!

ZombieCat said...

I'll take the Nightmare colorway in ANY fiber! Very cool!

Flower Child said...

Her "nightmare" colorway is more like my dream. What a beautiful collection of colors to melt into.

Jennifer said...

Love the transitional yarns.

♥ Meg ♥ said...

Such awesome batts on a Dyeing Wish's Etsy shop! My favorite thing by far is the "With Envy" batt. The dark and bright greens would make a really beautiful and subtly variegated yarn. I'm even envious of it, haha. Might have to snag it for the stash actually >_>

Thanks for the great chance at an awesome giveaway!

I lover her lace yarn, especially the Vintage Lace and I would wanted in the colorway "Vanda", which is a goergeous orange. A Vonda is an orchid that is known for exactly those gorgeous colors.
I am also a beginner spinner that is always looking for fiber. Her idea to integrate her families birthstones makes it very special
