Silver Sun Alpacas Batt Giveaway!


Sometimes, no matter how "good" I try to be this time of year, I regularly seem to find myself indulging in something sinfully decadent. Usually, it is food or drink, but I think It would be better for my waistline to dip into my special reserve fiber stash and enjoy some decadent spinning.

Enter Silver Sun Alpacas and Ricky's gorgeous Merlot and Truffles batt!! Alpaca, Falkland, Milk, soy, Superwash Merino and the perfect touch of angelina. Dreamy!!
As well as everything else in the Silver Sun shop!!

Please visit Silver Sun Alpacas today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week, so please take a moment and help spread the word on your social networking sites!

Alpaca seems to be my new fiber of choice. It keeps following me everywhere!

However, this time around, I really love the Hawaiian Blue fiber. I'm trying to love color, lately, and this looks like a beautiful blend that I would love to seen spun up...

Heather said...

I looked through everything carefully -- your shop is filled with so many beautiful things! But I have to choose the Merlot Truffles as my favorite.... how could I not?

Oh, I love the BollyWood batt... and it would ply perfectly with some hot pink bamboo that I've been unsure what to do with! Now I need to convince myself that it's ok to buy something for me when I should be buying Christmas gifts!
