I love the fiber sample package and pretty much anything in the alpaca folder. But I was very drawn to this one (http://www.etsy.com/listing/97905733/fine-alpaca-roving-handpainted-fiber-for) since it is so radiant and reflects my wedding colours so closely...just makes me smile :)

Alassel said...

I love the fiber sampler packages - the 24 breeds in one package is incredible! :)

Antechinus said...

All the colours are amazing! I especially like the Polwarth/Silk fibre in the red/orange/violet/yellow colourway - so bright and beautiful.

Woolgatherings is one of my favorite vendors. I have been eyeing the merino sparkle and would be thrilled to get my hands on some. In the shop today, I am really drawn to the 24 Breed Fiber Sampler. What a treasure that would be!

I love the 24 breed sample. I was telling my mom about it the other day.

Ely said...

Kate is a dyeing genious! All her colours are awesome, but one of the things I love is that she always have some new and interesting fiber that I haven't tried before. Masham, Welsh, Cormo.. I'll have 'em all -. cause all the colours are stunning.

1Geek2CraftAll said...

I love this shop. I'd have to put down the Alpaca/ Silk Roving in shades of blue as my latest favorite.

Reivenna said...

24 Breed Fiber Sampler !!!
drool. Unfortunately I used up my wool budget for the year. /cry

Nola said...

LOVE the black alpaca/silk roving! But I would happily take a whole ton of those colorways home if I had the funds, LOL!

Jennifer said...

I have a bunch of stuff favorited from her store! The BFL in shades of blue is lovely!

Lael said...

Beautiful colors! I really like the alpaca/silk in the blues and the BFL in the orange/pink combo.

It's ALL **GORGEOUS**! Most tempting is the BFL Wool Roving - Hand Painted in shades of blue. Rav amchart

linzbinz said...

I'm such a Woolgatherings junkie! I'm lucky that my semi-local LYS (well, when I'm visiting my parents 5 hours away!) carries her stuff so I get to grope it all in person! Anyway, I'm LOVING this BFL/Silk! http://www.etsy.com/listing/100839754/bfl-wool-silk-roving-7525-handpainted

Love woolgatherings! Love the sparkle merino fiber, got some in the may box and it is already spun up! I am currently spinning the May playing favorites club selection also. My favorite is the polwarth silk blend.

The Wool Pantry said...

I love almost any fiber. Really like the silk blends.

Melissa McKenny said...

I love her choice of color combinations. The yarn itself looks gorgeous, but the hand dying makes it that much better. My favorite is the mix of salmon pink, red, raspberry, plum, and gray. Her shop is actually very close to my home so I can't wait to stop in and see everything she has!

Dovile said...

I most like the color of this one:

I bought stuff from this store only the other day and am being patient waiting for it to arrive (BFL in blues and golds)... I love the fact they sell Manx Loaghtan - as our heritage is in the Isle of Man. But I also love all the coloured fibers!!! So many good combinations!!!

Wow, I think this is one of my new top favorite shops! The colors are gorgeous, and I love how the tops are photographed in many ways so you get an accurate idea of what the colors look like.

Pick one thing? Only one thing? That's going to be hard, I love so much from Woolgatherings. I've had the luxury of trying out a few things and I must say I love the alpaca braids.

So hard to choose just one thing, with so many lovelies. All of the hand painted fibers are gorgeous, but I really love the silver alpaca/tussah silk roving. It reminds me of moonlight, or quicksilver. Very magical.

Sue Smith said...

Love the shetland humbug! And I'm also partial to the silver alpaca/tussah silk roving. I'd love to spin that on my drop spindle - very soothing!

Gloria said...

Jessie said...

wow. i loved so many things in this shop. i have made it a favorite on etsy and will be buying some just as soon as i save up some more moolah! i get rather bored of spinning sometimes on my spindle so i tend to gravitate towards neat and chaotic colorways. plenty in this shop! here's one i particularly loved: http://www.etsy.com/listing/98655362/superfine-merino-wool-tussah-silk-roving

arayti said...

I love all the colors, but the luxury fibers sampler pack makes me want to imitate my cat and smush my face against all the soft smooshiness.
