Fiber Fancy Salt and Pepper Roving Giveaway!






Time to gear up for Tour de Fleece! Maybe part of your tour, you'd like to spin more exotic fibers like alpaca, but you want to get your feet wet first. Enter Fiber Fancy's May Spice Market Box submission "Salt and Pepper" aka: The Good Old Days. It's 2/3 Local Alpaca and 1/3 small farm Corriedale cross. That Corriedale in there makes it easier than straight alpaca to spin, and it gives it a nice bounce.

I'm pretty excited about giving this away, because I've handled it, and I think you'll really enjoy it! Just visit Fiber Fancy today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner soon, so make sure you use facebook and twitter and other social networking sites to your advantage- by letting everyone know about this, you'll be entered again in the drawing, just  make sure you tell us where you did it.

All of the fibers are so gorgeous. But I love 'The Fire Within'-merino roving.

I like the old fashion candy sticks, they look so nice and tempting.

Inspiration Fibers said...

I have 2 oz. of this Salt and Pepper spun, and 4 more waiting for me. I really need more of it! It's such a soft blend.

But, if I have to choose something I don't already own from Diana, it would be the Roller Coaster roving!

Teresa said...

I have always loved her various rainbow rovings. One of those helped my sister get through her breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. I love her playing in the kettle colorways . . .

robiewankenobie said...

Ms. Wassemiller said...

I love the vividness of Habaneros (Falkland Wool Combed Top Roving). I'd totally be signed up for the Beatles Fiber Club if tuition didn't have to be paid.

carolpa said...

OHHHHH.....I just ordered a spinning wheel!!! I can't spin yet but I sure can stash and Fuchsia Fancy is a sure winner.

cs said...

If I had to choose just one, it would probably the Orchid Shades fiber - I've never spun BFL before. But it would be hard to choose just one!

Em said...

That Habaneros falkland is perfect! Really, though, I'll just take it all please :)

neilsnana said...

I love the colors of the fibers and maybe doing something this wonderful will help my spinning to improve!

Jennifer said...

The Fire Within! Not usually the colors I'm drawn to, but something with the way you combined them drew my eye!

Katrina said...

Shaun of the Dead looks cool. Would love to see what colors this involes.

Barbara said...

I recently joined the Shaun of the Dead SAL and I can't wait!!! I also grabbed some 'Rootbeer' and 'Blossoms & Envy' roving and they are so soft I don't know if I can wait to TDF to spin them. Now I'm lusting after the BFL 'Country Mountainside' roving... I'm a sucker for earth tones (especially when mixed with jewel tones).

Brittany said...

I like all of them but the 'boys of summer' stand out the most.

R said...

Wines! - lovely!

SJS said...

Ooh! Country Mountainside and Camping Memories are my favorites! I love those landscape shades!

Faerie-Dancer said...

The Roller Coaster Romney Wool! It's beautiful!

The Roller Coaster roving is very pretty

<3 the Hairy Sheep yarn.

SusanM said...

I love Habaneros, it's so bright! and the Overgrown Gravel yarn colorway is lovely! So much to choose from and only 2 hands for spinning & knitting......

Lauria said...

I can see why "Cold Mountain Breeze" was chosen as a featured item. It's absolutely arresting! Love it!

Zabelle said...

I love fiber fancy products. I've bougth from her many time. Great service!

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

Both BFL, but otherwise very different: Cool Mountain Breeze and Fuchsia Fancy for me, please :-)

Stacy said...

The "Playing in the Kettle, Hand Dyed, 4 ounces, Domestic Wool Combed Top, Roving in Sweet Peppers" makes me want to use it as a soft, squishy pillow. :o)

Carlin said...

Hard to choose because there's so much good stuff but I think my favorite would be the Cool Mountain Breeze roving.

Brittany said...

I have been keeping an eye on The Roller Coaster roving. I don't know what it is about that colorway, but it makes me happy.

I love her shop! I want to spin the Sweet Peppers and the Habaneros and ply them together.

ZabberSays said...

Too many things to love! I think I like the Cool Mountain Breezes BFL combed top best.

I like the roving in Wines.

Funhouse Fibers said...

Love all the fibers, but the "good old days" is really calling my name - I got a sample in my May box, and it's scrumptious!

Lots of great colors, but the monochromatics are lovely too. I love the BFL Rusts. Wouldn't that spinn up nicely?
