The Critter Ranch





We have a lovely bit of extravagance to give away today! How about a treat of Llama Cashmere, Mulberry Silk, and Firestar?! The Critter Ranch sent in these lovely samples for the January "Luxe" box. I haven't seen anyone post pictures of this spun up, but I would sure love to see it!

The Critter Ranch has just pages of luxurious Llama and other super-soft fibers to be had! Beautiful handspun, small fiber pack samplers- lovely, lovely stuff!

Please visit The Critter Ranch today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below to be entered to win this 'Extravagance' batt! We will count those social networking pings as extra entries, so let everyone know how much you love this shop!

I would really like to purchase extravagance. I have been waiting for it to come out in full size rather than sample size.

Oh my gosh, it is like fiber candy.
I'm really liking the Victorian Elegance batt collection, the rose and grey Falkland top, the Just for Fun batt, the At the Woods Edge batt, and the black and red leather llama/tencel blend.

I am truly amazed at the wide range of gorgeous colorways offered. They are all so vibrant and soft looking that you want to just reach out and run your finger through them! My absolute favorite is from the fiber club barn dances. I love the Wall Flowers & Tusah Silk, January Barn Dance, Extras 1.oz total locks and silk in Pink, blue, violet, yellow and moss green because of the beautifully mixed color combinations.

The Goblin batt in Rainbow Colors is pure fluffy magic!

Jessica Jo said...

A smooth batt would be nice. I'm so tired of batts that are supposed to be smooth but end up lumpy and hard to spin. I like how they have a section just for Smooth Batts.
