Shades of Light Silk/Wool single ply yarn giveaway!






This yarn! This. Yarn. It's so soft, and the colorway is just amazing! Of course, what else can we expect from Angelika at Shades of Light?! The colors on this yarn are just glowing!

Sometimes, I look at shops like Shades of Light and I wonder if they carefully study color theory and current trends, and then I usually come to the conclusion that they are probably the trendsetter themselves!

To enter to win this gorgeous single ply DK/worsted weight yarn, please visit Shades of Light today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments area below this post. You'll get extra entries by sharing on your favorite social media platform! Thanks for helping spread the word about Shades of Light!

Every time I'm on this site I have an uncanny ability to click on 39d every time. The colours in the wool/nylon mixture seem to be much brighter than the 100% Merino...so that skein is now in my favourites ;)
