Fiber Fancy Shetland braid giveaway!


I just adore this Shetland wool fiber that Diana of Fiber Fancy dyed for April's Tea Party box. The inspiration rose chintz china teacup is just what I picture when I think of tea time!

Fiber Fancy has a shop bursting with freshly dyed fiber and yarn! I would bet there is something to suit everyone in there now. The shop gets updated very often, so the wait for new and exciting colorways to show up is never a long one.

We're giving away this gorgeous Shetland braid today. Please visit Fiber Fancy, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Be sure and use your social networking skills to spread the word about this shop, and gain extra entries!

I love the bold colors in "Memories"

CrazyVet said...

I love the colour combination in the pet "playing in the kettle" combed top, I think it would make a lovely grayish yarn with just a tinge of contrasting colour.

Liz said...

Love the "Hayride in Autumn" batt!

B Greene said...

I agree with Chris - Memories is the wool that stood out to me the most!

Antechinus said...

Cherry Bomb and Rusty Penny - great colours and names.

Ely said...

The Rusty Penny is a prettty colour combo for playing in the kettle. But I didn't know there were any 80s music fiber clubs.. now I get all tempted...

Robin said...

Relaxing Stroll batt is for me! Love the colors

knitterlydesigns said...

How beautiful. Might have to try my hand at drop spindling again.

The Sea to Sand Batt is very pretty.

Teal time, Glowing spectrum, Happy go lucky... what's not to love?

amchart said...

the Circus Days handspun is lovely as are all the items

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

I just ordered a few things from Fiber Fancy, but I didn't buy everything I wanted. The Budding Flowerbed BFL/silk, for instance or the Amethyst Ideas batt. I think I showed an impressive amount of will power that day, because those items are pretty strongly tempting!

Dentaurus said...

Oh my, oh my... I love so many thing in Fiber Fancys Shop... the batt "Rolling waves" and "Amethyst ideas" yummy! And those rovings "Budding flowerbed", "Far far away", " Sun strike" and "Rodeo"... I almost made an order but... gotta get my new spinning wheel home first...

Becca said...

Oh my! Which one is my favorite? Relaxing Stroll, Hayride in Autumn? But with Spring here and all the planting to be done, I think it's going to be.....Budding Flowerbed!

Imajinthat said...

How can anybody pick a favorite.... I am in awwwwwwwww... I love the hand dyed bamboo and the "Memories" well it just wonderful... Hayride in Autumn makes me smell cinnamon in my brain and the "Relaxing Stroll" is a reminder of late summer evenings at the beach, it cools off and the air tastes of salt.... The Mulberry Silk is lushious but the one I just can not come up with words to explanin is...... My Favorite Sweater...... mmmmmmmmmmmm Just looks so snuggly like a warm blanket out of the dryer on a very cold day.
