BeesyBee Fiber giveaway!





I'm just going to come out and say it. BeesyBee Fibers is one of my favorite places to buy hand dyed fiber. Patricia's colorways are so beautiful, and always make me think that I could find these colors in nature if I looked hard enough- maybe a brightly colored bird or flower...

Don't even get me started on her bases! I love wool- it is always feels like a homecoming when I go back to spinning wool from a more decadent fiber like silk. Unpretentious, sturdy and warm... mmm :)

To enter to win this beautiful "butterfly swing" BFL from BeesyBee Fibers, just visit the shop, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. I'll count those social networking pings as extra entries- let me know that you did it.

I love the givewaway fiber colorway.... but first glance in the shop today - the Funky Guru corriedale locks, isn't something I've seen in nature lately, but I love it and want to needle felt all sorts of things with those colors! Love peaking in her shop on a regular basis... never know what to expect... different colorways every time. =)

This is an awesome shop! So many beautiful colors -- I can hardly choose a favorite. If I have to choose, I suppose it would be Ruffles. Thanks for introducing me to this shop.

Wow, what a beautiful shop! The colors really jump out at you - excellent job, Patricia! I really love the BFL top in the Funk and Tuscany colorways. Lovely.

bI love Miss Potter; very unusual combo. I bought my first "fancy" hand-painted roving from BusyBee, back when I was first learning to spin with my hand spindle! I've been hooked ever since (both to spinning and BusyBee's fibers).

Mara / moonsister said...

the teeswater lock yarn is fabulous!
