Chinchillas1957 flying squirrels fiber giveaway!


This giveaway was a long time coming! Chinchillas1957 created these pulled fiber balls back in September for our "Enchanted Forest" box. What a gorgeous mix of superwash wool, brown alpaca and angelina!

Come see more gorgeous fiber! Lauren has loads of nommy goodness in her shop right now! She has several of these hand pulled fiber "nests" available, which is such a lovely fiber prep and you don't see it everywhere!

Visit Chinchillas1957 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, and remember that all of your social networking updates about this will get you extra entries!

Oh I absolutely love Luna & The Thestral and Electric Raspberry Cream Truffles! They're so gorgeous, and you're right: that fiber prep is really not available many places. I'd love to try it!

I love her use of color! I can't take my eyes off of 'Luna & The Thestral'

Jessica Jo said...

I love combed fibers! I love coming fibers! Well, I like the pulling off part the best. I would love the "Witches of Tar Valon - Red Ajah" and not just because I read the first 10 books in that series!

Chris said...

"Ocean Swells" is a really soothing combination.

I think my favourite is Cherries Jubilee. I just noticed I don't own any red fiber and has been having a craving since.

Ilona said...

The Thinking of Snow fiber is really lovely. :)

Faerie-Dancer said...

Witches of Tar Valon is a lovely fiber; however, she has so many lovely colors that any will be great.

Nikki said...

I love the Falkland, Merino Wool, Bamboo, Silk, Firestar, & Angelina Hand Blended Fiber because of the great fiber blend, and because I'm nuts for yellow. Gorgeous stuff!

Loving the "Electric Raspberry Cream Truffles" colorway. Although it's making me hungry...

Kara said...

I really like the Dragon fleece. I bet it would look gorgeous spun up!

Elariel said...

Apple Jack! Oh boy it looks so creamy. It reminds me of a pudding that my mum used to make with baked apples and cream.... I wonder how much I'd need to spin up a jumper?

Both Brown and Red Ajah- Witches of Tar Valon. The red reminds me of peppermint candies this time of year. So smooth and silky looking.

Gynx said...

I love Spinning Fiber Superwash Wool, Faux Cashmere, Bamboo, Firestar!

LE said...

First of all, I love that they're selling a pancake recipe. So random.

The color combinations are all so eye catching that I had to give them all a second glance before I picked one. But I think the Electric Raspberry Cream Truffles win it for me. (Miami was a close second)

Karen said...

I like Spinning Fiber Superwash Wool, Faux Cashmere, Bamboo, Firestar in Electric Raspberry Cream Truffles. Sounds yummy!

Brittany said...

I love the 80s Birthday Party!!!

Allison said...

Is it okay if my eye was drawn first to the pancakes? :-P

Wednesday said...

I'm obsessed with the 80s birthday party, and if I wasn't short on my rent, I'd have that sucker in my cart already! :p I love alpaca, and I love polwarth, and I adore the colors! It just looks so squishy!

I'm also fairly in love with the one that looks EXACTLY like fresh-fallen snow! Also an ideal blend of fibers that I'd kill to be able to touch/shove my face in. :)

I pretty much adore everything in the shop, but those two are my faves!

Wednesday said...

facebooked! :)

Siennekitty said...

Am I too late? Love the lavender sachets. But, but... AppleJack in BFL, Superwash Wool, & Bamboo Hand Blended Fiber is totally scrumptious.

my fave right now is the Electric Raspberry Cream Truffles. I have gotten a few samples from chinchillas in boxes and was in love with all of them-my prob was they came in small amounts- I have now realized I NEED TO MIX AND MATCH-the 1-2 oz portions are perfect to make a entirely original yarn- I am off to decide- you may have just created a monster

neilsnana said...

Love the angelina spinning fiber!

csmdyrn said...

Witches of Var Talon takes my breath away. Would like to try spinning this combo.

sparkklegirl said...

Wow! Love this shop!! Love Electric Raspberry Cream Truffles! Yummy!!
