Hilltop Cloud Arabian Nights Batts giveaway!






Hilltop Cloud's Arabian Nights batts are these gorgeous, textural buns of silk noil and firestar carded with manx loaghtan wool. As with everything Katie does, these are so beautiful and feel really really special. It should definitely be spun with much enthusiasm and enjoyment!

I feel a tiny bit guilty (not really! LOL) about looking over the Hilltop Cloud shop and making a personal purchase before featuring her today. I bought her British Breed Sampler (yum!) because I'm in a bit of a rut and need smaller, interesting things to spin.

If you'd like to be entered to win this batt set, please visit Hilltop Cloud today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Remember to activate your social networking super powers and pinterest, facebook, twitter etc about the shop for extra entries! Just let us know you did it!

Becky said...

I have to have the Arabian Nights collection. I lived in Turkey for two years and miss it immensely. These colors remind of the vibrant colors of the spice markets, the colors of ancient mosaics, some found in the middle of a farmer's field, and of the gorgeous sunsets starting with reds, pinks and oranges, and ending with shades of blue, dark and alluring with the shimmer of stars.

Cat2832 said...
