WC Mercantile Art Nouveau Fiber Giveaway!



You may have noticed that the Shearlock and Sonata's choice award goes to WCMercantile this month!! I thought Stephanie and Katie's Art Nouveau interpretation was spot on! The colors just capture the essence of their inspiration pic and all fo the different fibers that create to make the "melange" is just amazing. It has everything from silk to peacock feathers!

I know you'll want to take some time this week and really look over WCMercantile's beautiful shop. All things spinning and fiber are there to feast upon! A true "Spinner's Delight" so I can't wait to see what adventures Shearlock and Sonata have there!

We're giving away this beautiful Melange of fiber! Just visit WCMercantile today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count those facebook/twitter/plurk updates as extra entries so don't forget to do that!

Felting Wool Pallet 1 is yummy. I want to make a few things with it.

Natasha said...

I love that they have such a diverse selection of products. You can get a drum carder, wool roving, and sparkiles all in one spot.

Much, much too difficult to pick one. Working on the summer KAL at WC Mercantile, thanks to SuperSteph for help with yarn colors! My go to yarn is the Merino/Tencel dye your own.

Marianna said...

Those colors are all beautiful, but I love the nautical blue

I was very impressed with their offering in the Phatbox this month! Can't wait to get some time to spin it. I was yearning after the unique silk/linen mix, and I don't have any milk silk right now.

Faerie-Dancer said...

The Prussian Blue Merino Top!

Once I really get into spinning, I am going to get into sooo much trouble in this store...

Karen said...

Oh my, decisions, decisions!

If I could, I would choose Schacht Ladybug Spinning Wheel, If it is fiber, then it would be 4 oz. Merino and Tussah Silk Top -- Red Riddle. The color is so interesting!

What I wouldn't give for one of those drum carders! But I'm more likely to end up with some of the merino/tussah top - maybe in purple passion or Mackenzie tartan.

DebiP said...

The sampler of fiber is delicious looking! So glad I went to WC Mercantile's Etsy shop, it's a fav now! I'm smitten with the hand-painted kid mohair roving. Those deep chocolatey browns and rich purple colors together. Beautiful. All the fibers had beautiful natural colors to them!
