Inglenook Fibers Tyrian Purple Batt Giveaway!






Whatever words I come up with to describe this Inglenook Fibers batt, are going to be inadequate. It's beautiful. It makes me think of a painting, the colors just work so well together! If this was mine, I think it would be one of those batts I would "save" for a while and savor every minute spinning it!

Upon visiting the Inglenook Fiber Shop, I am literally salivating over the gorgeously dyed silk available! So may colors, so little time!!

To enter to win this giveaway, I'm going to ask you to choose one item from the Inglenook Fibers Etsy shop, and mention it below. I was going to say "choose your favorite" but, that might be too difficult (it is for me this Monday!). We'll give you extra entries if you share on your favorite social platform!

Ooooh! I've been eyeing Fiddlehead 1 (and 2!) for days. I lovelovelove those greens! (:

lisa said...

oooh. the parrot tulip wool/silk spinning fiber. sooo beautiful!

Kara said...

Oh wow, what a beautiful shop! I love all the rich color combinations - any one of them would be a delight to spin. The silk hankies look very fun - I especially like the sunset colors of listing number 152155349. Although, every time I tried to pick a favorite, I started to change my mind in favor of another gorgeous colorway.

Macrina's batts are incredible! I absolutely love the hand dyed Bfl/ silk top for spinning in Campfire -- this would be great for the fall!

Jennifer said...

The colors in the silk hankies are fabulous! I especially like the purple and blue with the touch of yellow in these hankies: http://www.etsy.com/listing/152153034/hand-dyed-silk-hankies-9-oz?ref=shop_home_active

I like the purple shades and the iridescent purple shades glass bead stitch markers (set of 8).

I also like the colors in the hand dyed merino/bamboo/tussah silk top for spinning 4.7 oz.
Merino/Bamboo/Silk (50/25/25).

kmroberton on Ravlery said...

I would really like one of her batts, but unsurprisingly, there are none in the shop right now! The blue & green silk/linen blend is really intriguing. I've never spun linen, and this roving looks like a great place to start.

Reivenna said...

Ophelia silk roving is so pretty.

Ravyn78 (ravelry) said...

Love the BFL/Silk top in the Skylark colorway!

Woolytanis said...

I love the polwarth/tussah silk fiber in colorway Kilmeny. You are right...is almost impossible to pick ONE favorite.

Cityslingers said...

Ooh, linen roving sounds like a fun challenge

Rebekah Evelyn said...

I like the Zinnias handspun yarn.

Yvonne said...

You have such a nice color sense. Especially love the hankies. Always nice to find a good source. They are one of my favorites to spin.

Lisa said...

Silk hankies! They are all so beautiful! in particular there is a lavender/olive green/turquoise blend that is calling to me!

Perrin said...

I can't stay away from the lovely shine on the hand dyed silk tops

Lisa said...

Pinned the Bangalore Art Yarn! so lovely!

Elaine said...

This is a really tough one for me. Not because I can't find something lovely...but because I just got a GIANT package in the mail from my last Inglenook order, LOL. The Tyrian Purple is a permanent favorite of mine, and I've pinned it for my enduring love.


Also I love the Topaz Silk/Linen blend. It's such a unique base and once you get the hang of linen, it's so rewarding to spin something new! I pinned that one, too!

Josiah said...

I like the 'Skylark' roving.

sarah in the woods said...

If I say the roving in Topaz but need to decide between the tussah silk and the silk/linen blend, does it still count as one?
