Frisian Pegasus Batt Giveaway!

This was one of the shining stars of the May box! A beautiful, shiny, sparkling batt from The Critter Ranch called "Frisian Pegasus". It contains baby alpaca, llama, tencel and firestar and is so dark, dark, and pretty :) The Critter Ranch is so full of fibery goodness, I am getting a little short of breath looking at it all! :) Lovely, lovely things to play with there! Please visit The Critter Ranch today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. When we draw for a winner, we'll count those extra social networking pings as entries- so help us spread the word!

The 'True Black' mill spun alpaca is beautiful - so shiny and soft-looking!

I *adore* the posted batt most of all - after all, I ordered more once I saw the sample in my box! Of the items currently in the shop, I like the merino/bamboo/silk fiber in the lavender/peaches colorway. Thanks for the giveaway chance!

I am going to be a sucker here... but the Frisian Pegasus is by far my favorite. I've been petting and loving the sample I got since the day I got it... I just spun it up, and oh my goodness, the black paired with the shiny is amazing. I just wish I could have ordered some when it was up in the shop and when I had more money!

I loved the handspun mini skeins (so much so that I bought them, lol). I am deep in mini mania, working on a sock yarn blanket. These are the first handspun minis I've run across, great idea!

Edit* iPad slip up caused me to delete my first post, oops, sorry. :s

I just spun a lovely skein of Falkland from The Critter Ranch in a colorway that's irresistable - "Trouble"!! It's gorgeous and squishy.

sgbooth88 said...

I got a sample of this spinning batt in my phat fiber box, and this stuff spins like a dream, and the way the colors looked when I was done were just amazing. It was solid black, until the light shined on it and then you could see all the beautiful colors!! I want another one of these so badly. This batt would have to be my most favorite thing in her shop, even if it isnt in there anymore!

Ann said...

I am in love with this... http://www.etsy.com/listing/88788494/roving-spinning-fiber-combed-top-hand

I'm loving this one: www.etsy.com/listing/95105081/spinning-fiber-roving-hand-pulled-hand.
I'm in full tilt summer mode loving watching my toddler discover the joys of warm weather and having the freedom to just go and do things with him. And the bright colours capture that summer spirit.

Lora said...

I have so many favorites! I think the colors in the combed top are amazing, but the batts are really calling my name. I don't have much experience spinning batts. I think my favorite is the Wild Flowers color!
