Black Welsh mountain mixed with silk seems like something I'd love to spin. It has something very mythological about it.

Pink Cashmere Spinning Fiber - oh I love all those pink shades..and cashmere too! :)

SJS said...

Ooh! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE the Southdown top! Southdown sheep are SO CUTE! They're used to prune the vineyards of California because the sheep are too short to reach the vines! Haha, how adorable is that?

Tara Candy said...

There are sooo many amazing things, but I'm having trouble resisting the Shetland roving in Light Rainbow! I can hear it calling my name...

Delanie said...

I love the British breed sampler. I can so see a shawl made with it.

<3 the Blue Leaves drop spindle bag. A very good idea for beloved spindles.

I love those buttons. I could make some, but why do that when I could buy them?

Really like the spinning case with the sheepies on it. Fiber looks so soft and fluffy.

Rebecca said...

I love all the breeds featured that I haven't seen before - I think my favorite item would have to be the british breeds sampler

The first thing that jumped out at me was the BFL/bamboo roving in Frog Prince. Love it.

I really like BFL Batts- Seaside Cottage, Phat Fiber July, BFL, Merino, Baby Camel, Shell Cottage. The nice mixture of subtle colors is soothing.

I recently placed my first order from Hilltop Cloud. It was so hard to decide because she has a lot of gorgeous fiber. One of my favorites is the Pastel Wool Roving, Shetland Merino Sea Cell in Spring Fling.

Heather J said...

I can't choose but I will say the damson fruit buttons inspire me.

Carmen Nuland said...

I love the Spinning Fiber Batt - Yellow Merino

Stacie said...

Hilltop Cloud is one of my favorite etsy shops to "window shop" at, but I've never bought anything. I need to change that soon. I'd really like to try the British Breed spinning fiber sampler.

LindaY said...

The batts are what caught my eye. Three, in particular, stand out to me: BFL Spinning Fibre- Phat Fiber Grimms Fairy Tales, The Frog Prince, BFL, Merino, Bamboo;
Turquoise Shetland Batt- Spinning Fiber- Logtang, Shetland, Merino, Yak, Silk; and
Blue Merino Batt- Textured Spinning Fiber- Jaquenetta Shetland, Merino, Angora, Firestar.
Wow...The color and fiber combinations are gorgeous!

SusanM said...

This is my favorite shop!It's hard to pick just one item-I love the North Ronaldsay, the navy southdown roving, the seaside cottage bats, the spindle bags, any of these things would make me very very happy!!

Donna said...

I love all the fiber and I really love the hard side spindle holders! I love the idea that my spindles would be really protected

GardeniaPatti, Maxwell Macintyre, and family said...

I really like the new line of spindle bags she has created.

lesley58 said...

Is it bad that all I want to do is squish all the fiber? I'm seeing monsters with the green art yarn!

Elaine said...

In the same line as your post, I really must order the British Breeds sampler box. I love to experiment with new fiber!

Perrin said...

i LOVE THE DROP SPINDLES BAGS BULGING WITH FIBER

A. Hiscock said...

Ooooh, the Seaside Cottage batts! And the Wyton roving braid, and the Launce bumps...

I'd love to try the British Breed Spinning Fiber Sampler, 9 different natural shades of wool.

Lindr said...

I really like the British Breed Spinning Fiber Sampler. Someday I hope to be a good enough spinner to understand the nuances of the different wools.

I also love the ingenious spindle cases! Definitely on my wish list!

Mary Mac said...

All of the fibers are beautiful, but the handmade wood buttons are just so unique.

sarahjeanne said...

I love that she incorporates so many varied British wools into her shop, like those found in the British Breed Spinning Sampler. It's also really helpful to see the selection of nine natural colors of four different breeds (after spinning and knitting) as a really classic colorwork hat in her friend's pattern.

victoria barton said...

i love the bfl and seacell the purple one.

terri said...

I love the BFL camel spinning fiber.

BlueKittyMeow said...

I love Katie's fiber so much - it's nearly impossible to choose just one (which is why her breed samplers are incredible!).
This time, my favorite is the Manx Loaghtan fleece. OMG and it's washed for that price. Total love.
Pinned, tweeted, and plurked too.

Anonymous said...

The "Blue Merino Batt" is just gorgeous!

petitevache said...

i love Hilltop Cloud, i've had some of her silk and black welsh mountain fiber and it's lovely. i'd love to try her teeswater/alpaca roving though, that seems like an interesting mix.

bryony bell said...

the Spinning Fiber- Manx Loaghtan Roving Brown interests me, its a breed of sheep ive never heard of.

Elariel said...

I love the Mellow Fruitfulness gradient, and I love the unique blended roving - shetland, merino and seacell! I'd love to try spinning that up!
