Girl Meets Spindle Black Tie Batt giveaway!





I really wish everyone could cop a feel of this carded batt by GirlMeetsSpindle!! It's really the epitome of LUXE! Mongolian Cashmere, Mulberry silk, Alpaca, Merino and Angelina combine to make this truly special! So special, in fact, that Shearlock and Sonata went to investigate the GirlMeetsSpindleStudio. We hope Rachel posts pictures of their adventures soon.

The shop is a little on the lean side right at the moment, but I wanted to share my excitement over her 100% tencel fiber. Rachel sent me a small sample to spin and it was really lovely, and turned into a beautiful glossy little yarn. I see she has some in her "nebula" colorway which is great! I recently spun a larger yarn out of this colorway and it's truly amazing!

If you would like to be entered to win this BLACK TIE batt, please visit GirlMeetsSpindle today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'lll be counting those extra twitter/facebook/plurk/pinterest updates as extra entries so be sure and spread the word!

I would love to spin some "Winter Morn" in any base, but I haven't tried banana roving yet. It says baby girl accessories to me....

Erin said...

Shady Brook Alpaca/Cashmere please!

Caroline said...

I'm really interested in the banana fiber, any of the colors. Love how you paint colorways on multiple bases, it's awesome to see how they're so different.

Both Phoenix Garden & Winter Morning are calling my name!! Fortunately I have some birthday money coming my way that has already been designated for fiber!! Favoriting this shop right now!!

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

I'm curious about banana fiber, as I've only ever tried it carded into batts in small amounts. Phoenix Garden is may choice for that experiment. On the safe side I would like the alpaca/cashmere Shady Brook. "Safe" as in I'm unable to see how alpace/cashmere could be anything but delicious!

Phoebe said...

I fell in love with the Banana Roving Winter Morn...yummy. And then there is the Mulberry Silk Silver in Semi Solid Rose.

The Royal Baby Alpaca/Cashmere blend in Shady Brook. I can just imagine that spun up into a gossamer wrap, while I lounge next to a bubbling brook sometime this summer. A whisp of soft warmth to protect bare arms.

Chandaleanne said...

Banana Roving - Crushed Cranberries is my favourite! The perfect mix of colour :)

Kryss said...

Black Tie?!? I've been eyeing these batts for a while ;)

I'd have to say the Alpaca/Rayon roving in "Nebula" is my favourite! I really like the "Winter Morn" colourway too! It would totally match some sock yarn that I have stashed!

(I totally would have picked the tencel too, but I'm not that talented of a spinner to love it in roving form yet :/)

Shared on Facebook, Twittered, and Google Plus :)
