Silver Sun Alpacas Strawberry Chocolate Cupcake Fiber Giveaway!


::groan::

Have I got a delicious giveaway for you! This amazing "Strawberry Chocolate Cupcake" fiber from Silver Sun Alpacas is absolutely delicious. So soft. So, So, So incredibly soft. And the pink and the brown together? Mouth watering!

I think if this fiber was food, I would eat it. Actually, I'm having a hard time NOT eating it now.
It's just like everything else in Ricky's shop- amazingly beautiful and almost edible.

We're giving away this amazing fiber today, and this is the last day of our Bonanza! Visit Silver Sun Alpacas today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for winners of all the lovely giveaways very soon, so please take a moment to twitter, facebook etc about them.

Persimon batt - reminds me of the fruit, especially the ones I had in my young childhood.

Galia Lael said...

The Adeline batt or the Lavender Vanilla batt. They are both beautiful, and would make an awesome yarn spun together :)

FB'd and twitted.

Stacy said...

I think the "Rose - Bamboo Rayon, Handdyed, White and Black Carbonized - 4.5 oz." caught my eye the most. It reminds me of a prom dress I wanted back in high school.

Teresa said...

I found her May 2010 samples - the Redwood Forest hand dyed and I just fell in love.

KT said...

What DON'T I like from Ricky? Right now I'm spinning one of the Spider Webs - it's a brown/cream alpaca/silk. Yummy!

What I've had my eye on for a while, though, is the Lavender Vanilla alpaca/merino batt. Also the Pacific Blue mulberry silk top. And the Obsidian gem collection...

(Tweeting!) KT

Oh my goodness - the alpaca silk roving in the pale natural colors are just lovely. The Fawn might just be my favorite!

Stirling said...

I don't think there is anything from that shop that I wouldn't like, but if I really had to choose something, it'd be one of the multicolored silk or bamboo rovings. Eggplants and Pacific blue are incredibly pretty.

Stirling said...

Consider yourself tweeted. :-)

Flower Child said...

The Yellow Submarine is so happy. But the olive color would be my favorite.

SJS said...

I love those Obsidian batts! There's nothing like shiny volcanic glass, am I right?

Reminds me of a Neopolitan sundae.

I like the OBSIDIAN - 4 oz. Spinning Fibers for your Gem Collection, By Silver Sun Alpacas and the idea of a grab bag if it can be had with no rabbit fur.

There is something rather soothing about alpaca/merino blend but add a touch of lavendar and my body just relaxes!

redzshadow said...

Eggplant mulberry silk that is what I love today!

Alison said...

If this is the same alpaca that I won in one of Ricky's SALs (and it looks like it is), I must say...it is SOOOOOOO soft and luxurious! Also, I love the rich colors of the her dyed bamboo and mulberry silk!

Magan said...

The Bora Bora batts are gorgeous!! I love the light blue/brown combo.

Romantic, indeed. Bold colors like these are just dying to be made into something spectacular! I love using bright (almost alarming) colors. They're hard to find, especially if it's going to be SILK or mohair!!! <3
