WCMercantile Rachael Batt Giveaway!


I'm so excited to have WCMercantile back in the box! This beautiful batt is called "Rachael" (from Bladerunner) and was dreamed up by Katie- Stephanie and Petra's right hand gal at the shop. I just can't tell you how beautiful this batt is in person- it's just amazing and I'm so excited to be giving it away here!

Before we get started with the giveaway, I want to tell you about a little promo WCMercantile has going on now. They are building a mailing list- I'm on it, it's awesome because then you are the first to know when things go on sale etc. All you need do is convo Stepahnie with your email address at her shop on etsy. She'll add you, and also enter you to win a $25 gift certificate to her shop! This promo is going on through the rest of June, but don't wait to sign up!

We're giving away this lovely batt today. Just visit WCMercantile, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below and don't forget to tweet/facebook about it for extra entries!

I want a WildCarder so I can make art batts, because I'm really getting into those right now! I'd also lovelovelove to get some more bobbins for my wheel for the TdF!

I'm absolutely in love with the Mackenzie Tartan Merino/Silk. Such a gorgeous combination that reminds me of the northern lights dancing in the dark black sky.

Stacy said...

Since I'm a beginner spinner I think the mystery bag looks particularly useful.

Adele Michelsen said...

Loved the undyed Merino Silk combos, both the yarn and the fiber...

I like the 4 oz. Fine Alpaca Top - Dark Chocolate. It's amazing that it's a natural color!

JenniferFour said...

Sorry if this is a double post but I didn't see mine show up: I love the handpainted roving by Rose Lane farm.

Merino top in "Pile of Peaches." I just want to roll around in it!

Love the Undyed Merino and Silk Yarn!
Thanks :)

Mary Katherine Politz said...

I love the 2 oz of kid mohair in the range of oranges. Just the stuff to add to my growing stash of fall colors. Yummy color.

Gently Used Coat said...

The Merino Wool and Tussah Silk Top in Hint of Lilac looks luxurious.

DesignVigilante said...

OMG I LOVE WCMercantile! They have such affordable prices and free shipping! I've purchased several things from them, I especially love their milk fiber and bamboo spinning fibers! Just shared this on facebook too

I am lucky enough to have WC is my LYS, so the real question is what don't I like there. Everything they carry is beautiful. But, I really love the Rachael batt (I saw it in person and it is beautiful), the Merino top Julep, and the Merino Tussah silk top Purple Passion (I have spun the green colorway and it was beautiful!).

Em said...

I love the Rachael batts, but if I could have anything it would be the Ashford fine tooth drum carder!

ohdessa said...

I've been eyeing the Wild Carder.

Rachel said...

OMG - I LOVE that Rachael Batt! Blade Runner rocks!

Rachael said...

I have to say I LOVE the 2oz Rachael Batt for the color as well as the name - My name is also Rachael and is spelled this way too.

Mara said...

I love the idea of the Dye your own silk hankie!

Kristin said...

I really like the Rachael Batt with Merino, Jacob, Kid Mohair, Ramie, Silk & Sparkle! Also I just love the SC Mercantile and have had wonderful service whenever I've purchased things there!

SJS said...

Oh, that dark chocolate alpaca top looks absolutely delishmous!

fern said...

If money were no object, I'd b going for the carder, but the Mystery Bag looks like a lot of fun for $10!

Nola said...

My wishlist with WC Mercantile is SO long that I don't know if there is any way to pick one thing, LOL! I have been really eyeing up the undyed silk hankies and yak top though =D

garilynn said...

Love the undyed Merino/Tencel (and everything else in the shop!)

Teresa said...

I so want the merino and tussah top in the Green Isle colorway - scrumptious!

cs said...

I'm seriously thinking about snagging the mystery bag ...

StephieJo said...

Of course, I drooled all over the spinning wheels (I've yet to get one). And I truly LOVE the black alpaca top. That looks like it would be lovely to spin!

sdelafield said...

what a beautiful batt!
I love trying any new or different fiber. So many to try at WCMercantile, like the 1/2 oz Yak Top in Natural Mocha

Karen said...

Of course, I would LOOOOVVVVVEEEEE any of the wheels or carders. But, if I have to choose a fiber, I really like 4 oz. Merino and Tussah Silk Top - Green Isle. The color is marvelous!

Turtle said...

the fine alpaca dark chocloate looks divine!

KEM said...

I love the alpaca/tussah silk mixtures.

Alison said...

What a wide assortment of beautiful supplies! I would love to try some silk hankies or cocoons!

I actually love the Rachael Batt that is the giveaway. I do love the catagory they have of Things that Spin.

marsha said...

I really, really could use that Ashford drum carder! They have a great selection of fibers. That Rachael batt is beautiful. Wish they would have batts for the rest of the characters in the movie!

Amanda L. Davis said...

I like the fawn alpaca top.

~jane said...

the color on the kid mohair (lavenderish) is gorgeous but for some strange reason the tops, like the Jacob top and the black alpaca top really appeal to me today.

SusanM said...

Actually, I think I like the Rachel batt best-lovely colors and Blade Runner is one of my favorite movies!

Mary said...

that mystery bag looks like a ton of fun!

Heather said...

Besides the spinning wheels, I really like the 4oz of Merino and silk in Red Riddle, but love it in Mackenzie Tartan because I would love to see those colors spun up!

ClaudiaK said...

I'd love the Mackenzie Tartan (Merino and Tussah Silk Top), the night shades are great!

I just finished spinning some of her Mohair/Wool roving and it was a dream to spin!

Maria said...

Ooooh I just love the Merino and Tussah Silk - purple passion!

Dixieburk said...

I got the rachael batt in my sample box, and wow, is it gorgeous! It was exciting to see some Bladerunner themed items. That is one of my all time favorite sci fi movies. Rutger Hauer was just yummy.

alittleweirdo said...

So many lovely colors! Especially like the Merino and Tussah Silk top in Mackenzie Tartan - looks like a really unique color!

Yarn Envy said...

I really love the idea of the mystery bag. I almost bought it but realized I need to have money to eat.. :(

Connie said...

I love the Tussah Silk Combed Top in Bronze.

mugginskate said...

I like the Aubergine merino roving! Really pretty.

Paulette said...

The Rachael Batt is gorgeous! I love the colors.

neilsnana said...

Tamryne (Ravelry) said...

All of the handpainted mohairs are lovely! Great color combos!

I got my very first fibre from WCMercantile when I first started spinning! Everything is great, but I'm trying to decide if I need the handpainted firestar. It looks so pretty. I don't know if it would make a stable yarn on its own, though, and I don't have a drum carder or hand cards. (I'm still relatively new in my spinning obsession...)

I <3 the Phat Fibre box idea. I wish I'd learned about it sooner. Absolutely fantastic idea!
