Hilltop Cloud Coedlan Spinning Kit Giveaway!


Katie from Hilltop Cloud in Wales sent in several lovely "Coedlan" patterns, complete with buttons she made herself! The Coedlan pattern is a beautiful cowl/scarf that would show of that special skein of soft handspun. Katie took the guesswork out of it all, and included several BFL/Seacell batts in this beautiful heathery lilac for this giveaway!

Everything is so soothing to look at at Hilltop Cloud today! So many natural fibers and it makes me want to touch everything there! She's got a british Wool sampler for sale, I would personally love to try!

Please visit Hilltop Cloud today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be counting your extra social networking pings- facebook, twitter, pinterest as extra entries! Thanks for helping us spread the word about Hilltop Cloud!

I love the Cloudy Rainbow color on BFL and Silk!

Well, that sounds just incredible!

I've been a fan of Hilltop Cloud for a while, and I have adored the Felix Felicis for a while.

Erin said...

Wow, I love her shop. I'd love to try the British Breed fiber sampler. I'm also swooning over Ribena and Frosted Pine.

Elaine said...

Well, I love that sampler box, I'd love to do some kind of colorwork piece using all the natural sheepy goodness. (PINNED that item to PINTEREST)

And, speaking of natural colors, that Bracken-dyed BFL is also so beautiful. I'm fascinated by foraging for natural dyestuffs...

Allison said...

Yum! I love working with natural colors.

kelli said...

Love the Valentine roving!

The British Breed fiber sampler looks interesting. Lime Cordial looks refreshing. Lumos looks luxurious. Candy Floss looks cute. Need I go on, or is it obvious already that I pretty much want everything?

Kay said...

Three of the pick and mix batts from Hilltop are getting to be my monthly treat to self. Second set of socks in the plying stage atm... now when is the end of the month again :)

I like the "limeade" and "kelly" rovings. Very pretty greens.

Jessica Jo said...

I am a button junkie (in the beginning stages, please don't worry about me) so those wood buttons make me very happy. Those 2"ers might be just the thing for that crocheted children's couch bed I was dreaming about the other night. Now to find some yarn and hook thick enough...

Clarissa said...

Okay, okay; I like the breed sampler kit, and the undyed Massam/milk protein fibre, and the BFL alpaca, and the BFL/cashmere/silk... and inthe other stuff I like the Closing Darkness roving, and the Amethyst Merino/silk fibre. I LOVE the fact that there are sparkle-free batts. I don't like sparkle in my spinning fibre.
