Oh, Friends in Fiber, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
But, since you're making me choose a favorite, I'll choose the 4 Oz. Multicolor Green Polwarth Combed Top for Spinning or Felting Love the color combo. Although the BFL/Silk rovings look just fabulous, too.

The purple multicoloured Polwarth is yummy and I have to say I love how some of the combed tops are presented all bundled up with a ribbon. The chianti in BFL/silk just drew my attention immediately.

SilverRayven said...

Love love love the Alpaca, silk, merino, camel batt.

love2crochet4fun on Ravelry said...

Very tempted on the New Hampshire Grown Roving Sampler Pack.

Love the BFL/Silk Combed Top "Blue Moon Gradient"

I like the Charcoal Cherries Gradient, but if it were in BFL I would like it a lot better because I would want to make my little girl something out of these colors, and I like the feel of BFL better for childen's items. If I liked it for me I wouldn't care because Polwarth is a very relaxing spin.

I like that you have angora fiber (it's on my wish to spin list), and the felting needles (I want to needle felt... someday), but those two things arn't something I would buy in the near future... but maybe somewhere down the road when I have more free time.

Josiah said...

This sampler looks so fun! I really want to try the suri alpaca/camel/merino/silk batt.

Kristina said...

The "Those were the Days" BFL/silk gradient are all my favorite colors! And I love that it was dyed using the fibonacci sequence.

Carlin said...

I love everything they have. But my favorite has to be Bollywood Goes Fibonacci.

Diane Donald said...

Heather J said...

I love the giveaway who doesn't enjoy spinning new things. Also think the alpaca,camel,merino,silk batt looks delightful.

Belladune said...

I want the llama, and the bunnies... Oh wait, those listings are only for their fibre.... Well, I guess I'd settle for some of thier fiber.... HAHA!

Donna said...

I went, I saw, I drooled a bit and smiled at all the things I already had from this shop. One I do not have and might just have to get if I do well with spinning silk this weekend is the hand dyed cultivated silk sliver in "Fever". Love that color!

Melrose said...

Love the Mauve Boudoir gradient! I just wish they did it in 6oz braids!

Mikiejr said...
