Friends in Fiber Gradient Dyed roving giveaway!


I have a confession. I almost kept this roving for myself! A few weeks ago, I ordered a green version of this, and Jan and Peg being the sweet women they are, threw this one in the box for me to 'Do what I want with it". Now, the inner hoarder in me grabbed this lovely raspberry colored merino/silk, sat in the corner clutching it and hissed at anyone who walked by. But, I eventually came to realize, if everyone knew how great Friends in Fiber is, maybe I'd be able to get these gradients in every color!

We're giving away this 4 oz of merino/silk expertly dyed in a Fibonacci sequence from Friends in Fiber. To enter to win, simply visit Friends in Fiber, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner later in the week, so you'll have time to let everyone on Facebook, twitter, plurk etc know about this awesome giveaway and gain extra entries by doing so!

I already know it's the Lemon Meringue Pie Blended Spinning/Felting Batt. There was a sample in one of my Phat Fiber Boxes and it spun like butter.

Brittany said...

Green flash looks scrumptious.

Francesca Hoffman said...

Their teal gradient polwarth looks awesome!

ania65 on Ravelry said...

Always so difficult to only choose one thing...Today I'd say...the Tickled Pink batt would be my choice. But the gradient fibers are all very cool...and I love the lemon meringue pie.

ekobor said...

=O Too many choices!

My first thought is the 4 ounces of BFL Earthtones, both Aquinnah and search for gold, but on second thought, maybe the superwash Merino in Moss...
Man, I see my spending money being eaten already...

ohdessa said...

I love the Moss BFL. So pretty!

Gently Used Coat said...

Everything looks great, but the Teal Gradient Polwarth top is fantastic (as is the purple gradient).

Kim R said...

I LOVE the Polwarth Purple Gradient.

GretaOto said...

Clarissa said...

There are so many beautiful ones to choose from! I love the gradient fibers, but there are many more I love too! I'll go with the teal gradient on Polworth.

greenbeanstring said...

Everytime Friends in Fiber do their General Shop Update on Rav, I have to hold myself back from ordering it all. But I have been drooling over the gradient dyed yarns, particularly in Green, my fave color.

Although I did have reason to share a pic of their needlefelted Lemon Meringue Pie to a non fibery world, which I enjoyed greatly.

Carla said...

The BLF silk top ( blues) is amazing!

cthulhulovesme said...

I love the BFL Combed Top in Sedona. Goes really well with the BFL/Silk in Blue Moon.

ZombieCat said...

Gradiant fiber, what a great idea! I know it's not for sale, but I'd like that cute angora bunny. >_<

GirlFaceCreations said...

I LOVE the BFL Aquinnah!!! Beautiful!!!

neferatowen said...

I love love love serengetti sunset yarn!

Faerie-Dancer said...

I love the teal gradient and Blue Moon!

lauraelih said...

I looooove the gradients. I am so close to breaking my fiber diet. Either the purple gradient or the glorious browns in Earthtones "Aquinnah"

Tara said...

I did love the sample of the Lemon Meringue Pie batt, but the gradient dyed roving for the giveaway is beautiful! I can see why you almost kept it

Hillside said...

I love the superwash merino in "moss". Just beautiful.

Hillside said...

Also facebooked :)

Lauria @ Brackenbury Lane said...

So funny! I just happened upon the owner posting in a forum about NH S&W because she made a cute hat to wear there. Then I checked out her shop because she said that she had been giving away free samples while at NH S&W. I was sad that I missed the samples, but I guess this is a chance to get something back!

I really love the Green Handpsun Merino/Silk Laceweight blend. It's so gorgeous and the color really caught my eye!

Tweeted & Facebooked!

sherry said...

Ooooo!
That's all I can say, "Oooo!"

Colors are luscious and those silk hankies...! Think that those will be my spinning challenge during TdF.

Yarn carousels look fun, too...only my dog would use them as a 'chew toy'.

Mary said...

the falklands handspun is amazing. I LOVe it!

Brielauren said...

knittaroo said...

That's beautiful! I also really like the Bright Azalea Pink Gradient. Yum.

Mi@ said...

All of the gradient dyed rovings are awesome. But I love the 'Crocus' on Polworth, too :)

Sheri said...

I completely was about to order the gradient dyed in every color they had yesterday when I realized my bank account probably wouldn't appreciate it. The gradients are my vote.

Donna said...

I want the bunny! Actually I LOVE the gradient fiber and the knitter carousel! I am going to have to get one of those!

Brandy said...

I looooove the cranberry bog, green flash and blue moon colorways, and all the gradients are fabulous!

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

Today what really catches my eye is the Polwarth Combed Top in Spring Bouquet colors. Super cheerful!

jane bonady watson said...

I LOVE the yarn carousel I just bought...I wish I had many...AND the lavendar they wrapped it up in just made my day. My spinning box smells like lavendar every time I open it!

Kaylan e. Senour said...

These ladies have been killing me with their new earthtones! I am always temtped to splurge when I have sales in my own shop.

Sedona and Search for Gold are the current 2 that would come home with me. :D

Deb at Merciful Hearts Farm said...

The Lemon Meringue Pie or the Cranberry Bog - both very appealing!

yarnmule said...

The gradients are ALL drool-worthy! I have to say though, my favorite is probably the one in the giveaway. But I can't help thinking about how squishy and delicious that polwarth would be in the purple gradient. Yum.

noodledogknits said...

Anything BFL is great, and I'm really loving the gradient colors.

sock2girl said...

i love this color...i also have her Knitter's Carousel with Maple Finish and love it what a wonderful tool

Erin said...

Yum! I love the purple Polwarth gradient and the BFL/Silk Combed Top in Green Flash.

Karen said...

I absolutely love everything in this shop! If I had to choose, it would be the purple gradient. I am also drawn to the moss items, too. The teal is awesome. See what I mean? I am torn between them all! LOL

Karen said...

I also liked in Facebook. BTW, I am purplepenguin in Ravelry.

wishuponafarm said...

I've bought their green and blue gradients and they are wonderful. I was actually going to buy this color next so I'll have to say Polwarth in Purple Gradient.

It's too difficult to choose just one! I especially love the Handspun Merino Silk Blend Lace Yarn in moss green, but I like the Handspun Wensleydale Wool Yarn in silvery grey very much too.

Amber said...

Love this shop and can't wait to order something from them. So hard to pick only one favorite! But if I had to today, it would probably be the Blue Moon BFL/Silk braid...or any of the gradient dyed braids.

Teresa said...

I love the Blue Moon BFL silk - lovely!

Karla said...

I love the yarn carousels!

Melrose said...

Everything is beautiful. I especially like the Search for Gold and I wish my daughter would leave slippers on because I'd be special ordering those angora booties in her size!

BFL Combed Top 4 Oz. Earth Tones - Spice is beautiful!

Anonymous said...

If someone said, You can only have ONE favorite," I'd have to say the handspun Uptown Chessie. Gorgeous, amazing, subtle! The narrative says the picture doesn't do it justice; I can't imagine how the skein could get any better.

I have always admired the Knitter's carousel and one of these days, I know that I will have one, but the fiber always comes first!! I love the BFL/Silk in Blue Moon and the Polwarth in Crocus and the teal gradient. So many lovelies,

SusanM said...

It's really hard to choose one thing! I really like the rovings in Blue Moon and Spice, but I'm also eyeballing the Maple Knitters Carousal....

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I picked the .BFL Combed Top 4 Oz. Earth Tones - Spice, but it took a while!

Southern Mystic said...

Whoa, what luscious stuff! Handspun angora, suri, bison?! Cool! If I have the money laying around taking up space, I'd spend it on chain-plied, sport weight handspun angora in a heartbeat!

Pips said...

I'm totally in love with the handspun alpaca/silk uptown chessie. I love the dark purple with the pinks and a hint of green - very, very beautiful. (I think I may have to clean some drool from the keyboard now.)

Galia Lael said...

I'd get me one of the Knitter's Carousels if I could afford it. The gradients all look awesome!

Jaguarrior said...

Your products are gorgeous and the prices are great!

My fave thing in your shop has to be the Needle Felted Lemon Meringue Pie

It looks so tasty but I'm not sure that's the kind of fiber I need in my diet rofl

I love all the gradient rovings! Today, however, I discovered and am quite intrigued by the Guanaco and Silk Blended Spinning Batt. I'd never heard of Guanaco before!
