Hilltop Cloud "champagne" Wensleydale giveaway!



Oooh am I excited about this giveaway! Some gorgeous "champagne" Wensleydale from Hilltop Cloud!! This beautiful fiber was dyed naturally using herbs by the lovely Katie in Wales. I really love this color, it's hard to describe, but "champagne" is the closest I can come :)

Hilltop Cloud is a beautiful shop, and I think this is the first time I've featured it on the blog? Well, you're in for a treat! Lovely, beautiful, natural British sheep breeds available here for experimenting with! Katie is only a couple of sales shy of 500!! I'd love for us to make up the difference for her :)

Please visit Hilltop cloud 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, but be sure and use your social networking powers and gain extra entries: facebook,twitter,pinterest, linked in- everything counts!

I love the color and luster of the Teeswater. It looks so soft and lush. As I'm a new spinner I didn't really know anything about this breed, but I just did some quick research and it appears that their fleece is as soft as the sheep are pretty!
