Silver Sun Alpacas Batt Giveaway!





We have a lovely, lovely treat for a giveaway today!! One of my all time favorite fiber artists, Silver Sun Alpacas (Ricky) has sent in this gorgeous batt! Ricky's signature style- luxuriously soft, amazing colors, and just the right amount of sparkle. LOVE.

If you are thinking about learning to spin in 2012, I might suggest you give one of Silver Sun Alpacas Learn to Spin Kits a go. Wanting to handle the fiber you are attempting to spin goes a long way with learning! The inspiration!

To enter the giveaway: we'd love for you to visit Silver Sun Alpacas 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, so be sure and share the love on Facebook, twitter, plurk, tumblr, pinterest etc for extra entries!

I've been drooling over this shop for ages. Haven't taken the jump yet. But I'm seriously loving Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. I can't imagine a better interpretation of it. So pretty!

I love the Willow spinning fibre batt because of its sheen and colour. Just looking at it gets me in a good mood, especially on these grey and dreary days. It is worth taking your time with the spinning just to admire the fibre and its colours a little longer.

Love the colors in a day at the spa!

Love Ricky's batts! Right now I ma drawn to the Rowan batt,not normally colors I would choose but it just works so beautifully! I may cave and break my fiber diet on this one!

I was immediately drawn to the spindle kit with fire red fiber. The colors caught my attention. Fire red is such an apt name.

Rita Varneke said...

I never thought I'd have enough patience to knit, but now am hooked and churning out pretties. I've eyed spinners at Wool Fests, but not sure I have the patience for it...but, it keeps calling to me.
