Dyet Yarns Mumbai Princess Batt Giveaway!


For the Bollywood Box last month, Nuri of Dyet Yarns contributed the most beautiful colorway in both yarn and fiber called "Mumbai Princess" and everything about it is just perfect! If any of you have used a drum carder, you can appreciate how difficult it is to create a batt where the colors are not muddied together. This Mumbai Princess batt is amazing!

Dyet Yarns
is pretty amazing! I can't wait to show you Nuri's September contribution! But that will have to wait for the video :)

We're giving away this Mumbai Princess batt! Please visit Dyet Yarns today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Be sure and gain extra entries by twitter/facebook/plurk updates!

I've never spun from a bat before (newish spinner, just used top so far), but these colors are completely amazing. I just want to pick them up and pet them.

Geal said...

I think that the spinning batt set Rarity is one of the prettiest things I have ever seen! Something about it really speaks to me! If I wasn't going to NCFF this weekend, I would so be being it!

I love the Ancient Guardian sock yarn. It would make a gorgeous shawl!

DonnaC said...

I love the Firefly Spin-a-Long 2 oz batt - Wasnt Born a Shepherd - I think it would be beautiful either 2 or 3 plied into a heavy fingering or a dk weight and made into a hat.

Love the spinning batt set in rarity. The merino top in hibiscus is also a beauty!

Anita said...

I love the crocodile lips batt! As a spinner and sometimes carder, I have found it difficult to produce exactly what I want. However, Dyet seems to be able to do it with great results. I like how the batt collection actually weighs enough to spin yarn for an entire project.

Knitter said...

i love their hand dyed sock yarn, all of it, lol. now i want some, lol. Mumbai Prince, especially.

I love the Echo colorway! It's hard to pick just one!
