Mama Jude's Pachyderm Batt Giveaway!


For August, MamaJude sent in the neatest "Pachyderm" batts and they are soo soft! With ingredients like merino, silk, milk and alpaca, how could it not be? This giveaway is a plant dyed batt in rich reds, golds, and palm-frond greens! A bit of the natural alpaca can be seen representing the elephant. It's pretty ingenious :D

If you've never been to MamaJude's plant dyed stuff, you'll be glad to know, it's a rainbow of warm plant dyed fibers, yarns, and finished objects. It's really great to visit on a gloomy day :)

Grab a cup of tea, take a moment, and visit MamaJude's shop today. Find something you love and write it in the comments section below. You'll be entered to win this Pachyderm batt! Be sure and twitter/facebook/plurk about this before the weekend, when we'll be drawing for a winner!

I love her Mermaid batts, and the indigo dyed fabric :)

Whoa, those are all plant-derived dyes? They're amazingly rich! My favorite batts are the Amazonite and the Bengali Bangles.

Can't decide which batt I like more: the Amazonite or Bengali Bangles?
And I love the fact that all this goodness has been dyed with plants.
