Funhouse Fibers Fun & Fancy Sparkle Yarn Giveaway!


Just when you thought Funhouse Fibers couldn't get any Funner... Miki adds a sparkle sock yarn to the mix!!! You all know my penchant for shiny and sparkly things and so my heart goes beat beat when I see this. I have to say though, the sparkle is not over the top at all and you would be able to wear your finished socks around and you wouldn't look odd :)

This particular hand painted "Fun & Fancy" Sparkle Sock (75% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, 5% stellina) is the most gorgeous cobalt blue color called "Party in the Tardis" and is a mighty generous 438 yards!

We're giving away this beautiful skein today, find something you love in the Funhouse Fibers Shop, and let us all know about it in the comments section. We will award extra entries to those who twitter/facebook/plurk/ravelate about this too!

I LOVE FUNHOUSE FIBERS!!!! She is a local dyer by me! So whenever I buy from her I get to pick up my order the next day or so at Joanns when we meet up and chat! :D

I already have my eye on the Berrylicious BFL Fiber.

I already own 3 braids of her fiber and 4 skeins of her sock yarn and am looking forward to using them! :D

Turtle said...

the Beaded Spinning fun kit .. it just looks fun!

Marlitharn said...

Party in the Tardis looks fantastic - my favorite color paired with my favorite tv show with sparkles on top! Timewarp Love Sonnet in slither silk is running a close second, though, just for having such a great name.
