Hilltop Cloud BFL/Seacell fiber giveaway!

Hilltop Cloud is quickly becoming one of my favorite phatties. I always look forward to the next creative submission to Phat Fiber from Katie each month. May's "Black Ships before Troy" completely blew me away! Such a gorgeous, moody blue on a beautiful BFL/Seacell base! We're giving this braid away! Please visit Hilltop Cloud, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count social networking as extra entries, so please help us spread the word!

A favorite other than the one up for the giveaway and the colorway I already own? Katie is also becoming a favorite Phattie. I love all of her stuff! If I HAD to pick something, it would be the rainbows!

I'm kind of in love with the pictured colorway. However, the BFL/Seacell in Porpoise (this one http://www.etsy.com/listing/95368427/blue-wool-roving-spinning-fiber-bfl) is really jumping out at me.

As usual, all the stuff from the people you pick is all so goregous! I am constantly seeing new people because of you guys.

If I had to pick something, I would pick either the pot luck roving, batts, and singles for a funky sock yarn or the British Breed Spinning fiber so I can learn about different types of sheep.

I like the teal roving but its superwash - and I'm a felter!
I'm intending to make some peacocks soon, so I'd have to choose the wonderful purple shetland for some highlights.
The giveaway makes me think of beach pebbles and sets off all sorts of felting ideas...

sarahjeanne said...

I love Hilltop Cloud! I told my grandfather that I have a bit of Wales in my stash from a Phat box, and it made him happy - his father's father came from a family of 7 Welsh brothers. My favorites from her site are the British breeds samplers because she's supporting a great tradition in the UK and protecting rare sheep at the same time.

InJuneau said...

The Blue Roving Merino Silk Shetland, Spinning Fiber - Sapphire is gorgeous.

Carlin said...

I just recently ordered the Brittish Breed Sampler from Hilltop Cloud which is super amazing. But I would love to buy tons more stuff from her as well. Like one of her amazing gradients.
