WC Mercantile bfl/tussah fiber giveaway!


WCMercantile has a new look to their website! It's really quite beautiful! It's really easy to navigate, and I must say, when I see pages of spinning wheels, my little heart starts to flutter!

We're giving away WCMercantile's gorgeous contribution to the Bollywood box: "My Love is Gone0 Arya 2" which is a beautifully dyed superfine merino/bfl/tussah silk and Ramie blend. It's super super soft and would be just a dream to spin!

To enter to win this top, please visit WCMercantile, find something you love and write about it in the comments below. We'll be drawing for a winner labor day weekend, so please twitter/facebook/plurk this for an extra entry!

I would love a lace kit for my Majacraft Suzie wheel! Oh, and some alpaca/tussah silk top wouldn't go awry either. ;)

Juneau and latte together look so yummy! I had a hard time choosing what I liked best!!

Heather J said...

The giveaway is my favorite. Though if I could afford it I want one of the spinning wheels after a lengthy try out on each of them.

Naycha said...

The WC Mercantile is a wonderful, cozy, shop. If you get the chance, you should definitely go! They very recently got me started on the drop spindle and I hope to own a wheel soon because I can't get enough! Would love to try my hand at spinning bfl/tussah!

marsha said...

I've always, ALWAYS wanted a Majacraft Rose. They are beautiful wheels. I love the selection of fiber. The give away is beautiful!

Anna said...

The colors, the colors, I love the colors of the fibers!!!

Clarissa said...

Wow! Love the website! (bookmarked it) The Kromski Polonaise would be awesome to spin on.

Erinmir said...

Ok, so dreaming big here - I don't have any wheel spinning experience but I have to say, in drooling over wheels, I think the Kromski Fantasia is just so unique and elegant. So I'd have to say, on a big wish - I LOVE it. :)

Teresa said...

I would really love to try some of this Alpaca/Tussah Silk top:

Love the India Ink color in the merino. And the website is nice.

knitmit said...

Can I be rather mundane and say I'd love to have an Ashford Niddy Noddy and a Lazy Kate. I'm currently missing those two accessories!

My all time favorite item was the sampler of non-wool fibers I bought last year, but I'm also pretty fond of the "Aggie" dyed Merino. It spun up to a lovely squooshy 2 ply worsted weight, and will be part of a hat for my husband (class of '09!). I love the color so much I will be ordering more for me someday too!

Kristen said...

I like the merino wool top in "Cabin".

InJuneau said...

I, too, love the Fine Alpaca & Tussah Silk Top.

Hmm. I think I could use a skein winder ... But e giveaway fiber blend is really interesting. I didn't see more offered on the site...

Dovile said...

I love the Merino Wool Top in Mallard.

Sheri said...

Completely saving up for a wheel right now so I'm going to have to go for one of the Kromski's. I'm looking at either the Symphony or the Minstrel.

Anonymous said...

Loved the Black Blue Face Leicester.

R said...

Chris said...

The sari silk ribbon would make such a colorful mat!

Amanda L. Davis said...

Kara said...

I'm really drawn to the felting wool set. I can see lots of possibilities in those great colors!

I really rather like the Mystery Merino Wool batt. It's like a miniature surprise bag!

The Aubergine merino top is a fantastic color. I love it.

6catsknittingaround said...

Wow! Love the new website. I really love all of the beautiful colors of Merino top you have. I could start naming off all of the wheels I like too but I already have too many and one might jump in my cart.

Kimberly R. said...

Debbie said...

My fav is the undyed merino and silk yarn. I would dye it in pretty bright colors! Debbie H

SJS said...

Well, I am on quite a natural color kick, so I'd go for the black BFL top, which is more of a warm gray/brown. And, you know, if money were no object, I'd have to go for one of the smaller, portable spinning wheels, like the Ashford Joy or the Schacht Ladybug!

The Knotty Spinster said...

I love the batts they create and all the wheels that they sell. Its hard to find a place with such variety.

Chief said...

One day, the Ashford Kiwi spinning wheel will be mine...

In the meantime, I love the affordable silk hankies!

Charaxesdistanti said...

Love surprises so the mystery batts are neat.

KEM said...

Have to say the Majacraft Rose. I want one!!!

bekknitsandco said...

I like their undyed firestar and the dyed bamboo top. It's a great price compared to some other dyed bamboo.

Kat said...

I love this new website set up. So much easier to find what I want. I am eyeballing the Cricket Loom. droooling

the Sari Silk Yarn looks like such fun for knitting

cguard said...

My latest WC Mercantile induced yarn is I am sitting in my newly finished living room in front of the fire in the fireplace spinning on the Kromski Symphony Spinning Wheel and feeling content and happy and right with the world. I may just have to replace the cows with sheep!

SusanM said...

How can I choose just one thing? If forced, I really want a wheel-kinda like the schacht sidekick or ladybug-to spin the giveaway on-it's lovely!

Marianna said...

I really like the Merino Wool Top - Lone Star Blue

janel r said...

LOve all the carding tools and spinning wheels. I also liked that the fibers can be ordered in larger amounts without custom ordering

The colors of the Sari Silk yarn made me smile and I loved the Floral Coral Reef Merino top. What a beautiful wheel to be greeted by!

Galia Lael said...

After I bought my wheel from Steph with all the add-ons, I keep coming back to the wheel add-ons section and drooling over everything!
