Hilltop Cloud Cream Tea Giveaway!

This lovely Merino/British BFL/ Baby Alpaca/ Tussah Silk/ Angelina blend fiber is called "Cream Tea" by Katie of Hilltop Cloud. This giveaway has been a long time coming! When Katie sent in this amazing fiber- she also included a packet of REAL British Tea and a beautiful recipe for proper cream tea and scones. She's so nice! Now, I know everyone is gearing up for TDF this year, but let me tell you, you have time to order from Hilltop Cloud and have it get here to include in your spinning! Just take a look at all that British wool you could be playing with during TDF! Please visit Hilltop Cloud today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count those extra twitter/facebook/pinterest updates as entries!

I really like the BFL Aqua Roving with Silk & Cashmere - such a pretty color.

Debbie in KY said...

Pinned it, too!

Antechinus said...

I've tried lots of Katie's fibres, they are all lovely. Right now I am seriously coveting the Southdown sock wool roving... especially the Stormy Night colourway.

There are so many lovely fibers at Hilltop Cloud! Most I like BFL and alpaca themselves but in blends too. And I love Katies variety of undyed British wools, so many too choose from!

Socksafari said...

shetland roving purple spinning fiber has a lot of playfulness. I totally love it.

Erin said...

All of her fiber is beautiful, but the first thing I want to try from her is the British Breed Fiber Sampler. Love.

Dovile said...

I like the merino fiber batt in 'Toad' colorway.

Yvonne said...

So many choices. I started to say the British Breeds sampler. But then I saw Spinning Fiber Roving - Dark Rainbow, 100g Black Welsh Mountain,Silk. What a beauty!

The bilberry pie BFL SW is very summery.

Love her batts - they're all very pretty. I do like the Shetland blend roving, though, "Glas" - the teal and white. And I really like the fiber in the giveaway.

Clarissa said...

I have always wanted to try her British breed fiber sampler. It just looks divine!

Lindr said...

I'm not sure if I like the natural colors more or the dyed fibers - so I'll choose as my favorite one that has elements of both - the Blue Spinning Fiber - Wool Roving Merino, Massam, Baby Alpaca in 'Deep' colorway. Love the brilliant true blue in this especially when mixed with the grays of the fibers. Gorgeous!

camphillpeaches said...

Blackcurrant Velvet is beautiful.

BlueKittyMeow said...

It's really hard to pick a favorite when I would buy any of her fiber!! But I think my favorite today is the bfl/seacell blend "porpoise".
Pinned, tweeted, and plurked.

Tia said...

WOW. I've bought different bumps of fiber to sample different sheep, but I regret not paying attention to the other fibers available! The handspun coil yarn in Moonlight is amazing.

Fiery Nature said...

Love the British Breeds Sampler. Pinned on Pinterest!

csndyrn said...

deki & jackie (deja) said...

I loved all of the fibers in her shop...so many to choose from! I think if I had to choose something to start with, I am really big on natural fibers in their natural state, so the British Breed Spinning Fiber Sampler would be a perfect start! Love the cream tea also though!!!! yum!

Kitsune said...

I really like the BFL superwash in Distant Shores

terri said...

I like the merino/silk/shetland roving in sapphire.

Doris said...

Raspberry Ripple just calls my name...and that Cream Tea is fabulous!

abcerella said...

Actually, I was just eyeing the cream tea fiber - so that is my fav!

ekobor said...

Too many things!
The Shetland Roving, Ombre, Shetland Merino Sea Cell - Summer Lovin' would be my favourite, but these other colourways are gorgeous too:

Dark Rainbow/Cloudy Rainbow
Turning Leaf
Vixen
Spring Fling
Ferrous

(And the buttons are quite neat too!)

I've always been enamored with naturally black fiber. The Black Welsh Mountain and Tussah Silk has got me drooling on my keyboard.

SilverRayven said...

Love the british breed sampler - I need to try it.

Unknown said...

I really like the purple BFL roving.

belle said...

I LOVE the light brown camel roving! It's super cozy looking.

Linda said...

I am in love with 2 or 3 of the items there. I love that beautiful pink plastic fibre batting or roving? I don't know how to spin yet, but at the price she gives, maybe I could learn how to do it. I love that pink and the Cherry Jam superwash roving, as well.

Turtle said...

stormy night!

Sylvie said...

The Cream Tea is actually my favorite, and since it doesn't seem to be in the store, I sure hope I win :)

Diana North said...

I love the BFL Seacell Pucker in Hot Pink!

Jessica said...

Really love the merino silk Icicle blend! And the drop spindle kits!

Allison said...

I don't think there is much on Hilltop Cloud's site I don't love. I picked a gradient roving Amethyst, of merino, silk, and shetland as a favorite. I believe I will be ordering some of the British wools to try them out before long.

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

I'm passionate about teal, so Awyr immediately caught my eyes. The fiber mix is interesting too: Merino, British Masham wool, Tussah Silk and Angelina.
Also, lately I've been thinking of inviting a couple of friends over for an introduction to spindle spinning. Wouldn't it be awesome on a dark and rainy fall day, to light a fire in the fireplace and let them play with some colorful fiber? With the drop spindle kits from HilltopCloud there's no way they wouldn't enjoy it!

Sam said...

The handmade buttons are so adorable.

Kounting Sheep said...

I love the color of the Raspberry Ripple--looks good enough to eat!

Robot Pop said...

Ooh, This is a shop I'm already in love with. This ombre pastel roving would make lovely yarn to crochet my little girlies a hat.

Loving the purple handwoven scarf. It looks super cozy.

Looks like I found a new Etsy "fave"! I'd love to try the British Breed Spinning Fiber Sampler, but I also want to try Manx Loaghtan someday so I'd like some of that, as well.

Saus said...

I love the merino rainforest roving. Looks amazing.

jmo said...

The gradient rovings (cloudy rainbow!) and ALL of the batts look absolutely delicious!
