Tomorrow Farm Silk Hankies giveaway!

I hope you're having a beautiful sun-shiny day! If not, how about spinning up some brightly colored silk hankies from Tomorrow Farm to cheer you up?!

And speaking of warm fuzzies... there are tons to be be had at the Tomorrow Farm shop! Steph is just the coolest, and creative person. I was lucky to meet her last summer at a fiber festival. It feels so good supporting small farms where my purchases go directly to raising animals in an ethical way and helping a cool Mom do what she wants to do in life!

Natchwoolie 'Grounded' Alpaca giveaway!

It's been a little while since we've featured Natchwoolie on the blog! Again, another one of my favorite shops! It is well known, I love bright colored and variegated yarns and fibers, but I also have a deep love of neutrals. Neutrals look good on just about everyone, so it is safe to choose them as materials when working on gifts.

It was brought to my attention that yesterday was National Caramel day. What a day it would have been to break out my caramel colored camel fiber and have a delicious spin!

To enter to win this "grounded" natural alpaca from Natchwoolie, please visit the Shop today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll probably be drawing on Saturday, so be sure and use pinterest, facebook, twitter etc to spread the word and gain extra entries!

BeesyBee Fiber giveaway!

I'm just going to come out and say it. BeesyBee Fibers is one of my favorite places to buy hand dyed fiber. Patricia's colorways are so beautiful, and always make me think that I could find these colors in nature if I looked hard enough- maybe a brightly colored bird or flower...

Don't even get me started on her bases! I love wool- it is always feels like a homecoming when I go back to spinning wool from a more decadent fiber like silk. Unpretentious, sturdy and warm... mmm :)

To enter to win this beautiful "butterfly swing" BFL from BeesyBee Fibers, just visit the shop, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. I'll count those social networking pings as extra entries- let me know that you did it.
