Twisted Sunshine and Phat Fiber Silk/Merino giveaway!



I think this is the first time Twisted Sunshine has been blogged here- Yay!!! I LOVE this shop! Lots of locks, spinning fiber, and bags of bits to be had here!

This giveaway is gorgeous, nay, breathtaking!! This 4 oz of 50/50 merino and silk has a most lustrous shimmer and the colors, Oh the colors! Dark fuchsia pinks, sunset oranges, curry yellow and hints of blueish green round it all out. As if this wasn't pretty enough,Twisted Sunshine has included a lovely hand dyed silk scarf!

Please visit Twisted Sunshine today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Be sure and facebook/twitter for extra entries!


*****ATTENTION****** UPDATE!

I made a major boo boo this morning. I could give you some excuses that would make sense as to why I might have done this, but it's done. I had the wrong shop address- Instead of Twisted Sunshine (what I know as twistedsun.etsy.com) I was writing Felting Sunshine (another lovely phattie of ours!) To remedy this mistake I would like you all to visit Twisted Sun instead of Felting sunshine and I am adding a second prize: any 4 oz of fiber sent to you in Twisted Sun's shop. Those of you who have already commented are entered once, comment again on Twisted Sun's shop to be entered again. Thanks for understanding!!

Bright, bright colors and some unusual items here. Love the felted beads!

Today's pick: the 3.5 oz. falkland roving in shades of burgundy and browns. This would make a very lovely tonal yarn when spun.

I am such a fiber/yarn whore I want it all! I was totally in love with the post. First thing I thought of was candy corn when I saw the colors. But when I Felting Sunshine on Etsy I was swooned by the green, purple and blue Falkland Wool Roving. I absolutely love those colors together — light green and lavender were my wedding colors.
