WCMercantile Marzipan Bamboo Giveaway!


I apologize for the lateness of this post! It was supposed to go up yesterday, but my sister gave birth Monday night and I made an impromptu trip to hold my new niece- so sweet!

You know what else is sweet? WCMercantile's "Marzipan" bamboo fiber! Young Katie of Rosie Lane Farm dyed this gorgeous colorway, and threw bits of firestar into the dyepots just for added sparkel. This marzipan gleams and shines better than any I've seen before!

WCMercantile is a fiber lover's one-stop-shop. Dyes, fiber, spinning wheels, clubs, she's got it all! The free shipping throughout the store makes it hard to pass up!

We're giving away this gorgeous "Marzipan" Bamboo today! Just visit WCMercantile, find something you love (I'm asking a lot, I know ;) ) and write about it in the comments section below. This giveaway is a part of our giveaway bonanza, check back every day for more!!

Their Blueberry Blues merino/silk top looks lovely!

Rochelle said...

So hard, I love everything about WCMercantile. I can't seem to stop buying from them.
If I had to pick a favorite it would be the Alpaca and Tussah Silk Top in the chocolate color. So yummy.

chevyrell said...

i love all of their stuff and they have SUPER FAST SHIPPING!!! definitely one of my fave sellers=)

Flower Child said...

oh my, that Marzipan looks like it would melt in your mouth (or on your spindle).
I was just thinking about something yellow for the summer and low and behold I open up WC Mercantile's etsy site and find Lemon Drop, too pretty.

heklepekle said...

I love the "Things That Spin" section. I'm a fairly new spinner, and I love to look at spinning wheels. WCMercantile has a great selection.

Stacy said...

I like the various dyed Corriedale fibers, particularly the Pansy colorway.

Els said...

I think the "marzipan bamboo" is just too lovely!!

Deb at Merciful Hearts Farm said...

The merino wool in julep is just so serene. But that Marzipan really is a great burst of color!

Perrin said...

The Mercantile store is fantastic. It is one of my favorites in Etsy. I love the Marzipan Bamboo give away fiber tons!

I adore the 4 oz of Falkland handpainted in purple, yellow, and green: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62384933/4-oz-falkland-wool-top-hand-painted facebooked at http://www.facebook.com/russetlodgeknits and http://www.facebook.com/unaspenser and tweeted at http://www.twitter.com/shekure

I love the combs and drum carder. One day I'll get them for my fiber prep.

Allison O. said...

WCM is my go-to source for bamboo! And now you tempt me with more...

onthewingsofchange said...

There's so much to love! But, only picking one item (not including the beautiful wheels), it would have to be the merino wool top in patina. Stunning!!

I love the white Skein of Brushed Kid Mohair Yarn. I recently found a shawlette pattern knit of mohair that is would be perfect for. I love how we get to go and check out sites we may not normally know about for your give aways. I always find something that I love!

Reivenna said...

Opal Essence Batt - the very light blue and white is just so pretty

Galia Lael said...

It's unfair to ask for one favorite thing. There are so many!

Katrina said...

Dye Your Own Sock Yarn Kit

I have dyed with KA but it would be neat to venture out to other ways to dye.

I love the .3 oz Mystery Bag of Rovings, Tops, and Batts in different Fibers. What a fun bunch of fibers that could be.

Alex Levine said...

i love the copper crystal metallic fiber! it would look so yummy mixed with other fiber :)

VeloCC said...

I actually love the Ashford Joy Spinning Wheel. I want a wheel soo bad and that wheel looks yummy

Karen said...

Oooh, I would love a Schacht Ladybug Spinning Wheel - Plus EXTRAS with LAZY KATE!!! But, when it comes to fiber, I would like the 3 oz Mystery Bag of Rovings, Tops, and Batts in different Fibers or 16 oz Blue Face Leicester (BFL) Top in Natural Mixed Color. I want to experiment, learn, and have fun!

Satyr said...

Oh my!
I limited myself to fibre for my choice, otherwise it would take me too long!

I ended up with the 4 oz Falkland Wool Top - Hand-Painted by Rosie Lane Farm. It doesn't have a colour name, but it is just so springy and gorgeous with the peaches and leaves. It almost makes me want to drop the mohair/mulberry on my spindle! (only almost because I can't afford, but gosh, if I could!)

Silja said...

I love this handpainted Falklands top http://www.etsy.com/listing/62384933/4-oz-falkland-wool-top-hand-painted

I think my favorite is the kettle dyed mohair. So very pretty!

Nola said...

So many beautiful things - but if i had to pick one, I would love to get one of the DIY sock yarn kit, to make my own pretty yoga socks with !

garilynn said...

I am very, very fond of their Undyed Superwash Merino and Tencel Sock Yarn. It's just lovely! Of course, the best thing is to get in your car and drive to Navasota and bask in all the fibery goodness.

Annette said...

Congrats on your new neice! The Marzipan is beautiful - I'd also be interested in trying the dye your own sock yarn set. Looks fun!

♥ Meg ♥ said...

So awesome to hear about a new baby!

My favorite from the shop is the Merino Top in LEMON DROP it reminds me of sunshine and spring and it looks so delicious and soft. Yellow has always been one of my favorite colors, and this merino is gorgeous.

Susan F. said...

Where do I start? Um, 4 oz. of Alpaca & tussah silk, a Ladybug, and a drum carder, and...way too many goodies over there!

P.S. Congratulations on the new niece.

Flower Child said...

Had too add another note, there was some marzipan bamboo in my March box, I'm in love.

redzshadow said...

I would like some silk cocoons. Everything is my real answer when it comes to WCMercantile!

Natalie Servant said...

Congrats on the niece. I like the Lovett batt, but I also want to try some of their fiber blends like Alpaca & Silk or Camel & Tussah Silk.

Jan L said...

I especially liked the Falkland Wool Top that is hand-painted by Rosie Lane Farme. No name, but the one with blue is so pretty.
Of course, the bamboo give away is absolutely stunning.

Love the Lovett batt. The tonal variety is amazing and sparkle too? Wow!

Mara said...

The Lovett Batt is my favourite. It looks so soft!

Alison said...

I LOVE that Marzipan Bamboo prize! I am also interested in the silk caps she has in the shop. They might make for a fun dying project!

Linda said...

I covet the handpainted falkland wool top, especially the ocean-colored one.

Tera said...

Oooohhh...I want 4 oz. Merino and Tussah Silk Top - Green Isle! It is so pretty!

Southern Mystic said...

Oooooo, this is the best store EVAR! The yarn, the fiber, the needles, the fiber, the tools - did I mention the FIBER? This time around, I'm eyeballing one of their "artisan" mixes, those gorgeous dyed rovings! Wonderful stuff, as always!

folksmith said...

i would like to someday soon to be able to spin and to be able to afford a wheel. the lady bug would be the one i would choose. if i were to choose any fiber it would have to be one with bright colors.

Yvette Wilson-Jones said...

WC Mercantile is one of my 'newest' favorite Etsy sellers. I like everything they sell, but especially love all the hues and colors of the different merino in the 'Dyed Merino' section. It's so not fair to pick just one, but if I have to I'll go with the 4oz Aggie Dyed Merino :)

Kristin said...

Awesome give-away! I like the WC Mercantile. Wish I was closer to TX, especially today! More snow!! ICK!!!

I also like the hand-painted Falkland wool top (orange-peachy). :)

Wow, amazing shop, I saw a whole lot of things there that I love. But I think my favorite would have to be the Merino and Tussah Silk Top in Muscadine Grape-gorgeous colors, and I love the feel of silk blends!

Jennifer M. said...

Love any of the natural top like merino and Polwarth, just waiting for my dye pot.

Teresa said...

I just love all the scrumptious fiber available at WCMercantile! One day I will have some of their merino/angora to spin (as soon as I spin some of the stash I have built up).

Dagny said...

I love the plain colored merino roving. I've bought some in the past and really like how WCMercantile is my go to place for solid colored roving!
