Hilltop Cloud learn to spin kit giveaway!






Now that TDF is over, perhaps some of you have been inspired to learn to spin! Spindle spinning is very entertaining and quite portable, so it makes a good travel craft! Today we are giving away a learn to spin kit from Hilltop Cloud. A handmade wooden spindle, 50g of British processed Ryeland roving, and basic instructions on how to spin with a spindle.

Hilltop Cloud has some of the finest quality wool on Etsy. Katie sources her fiber from British suppliers, and she offers some unique British breeds to try spinning ;) I love, love her batts as well. Deep Sea Batts anyone? *sigh*

To enter to win this learn to spin kit, please visit Hilltop Cloud today, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below. Share with your friends on your favorite social networking site- pinterest, facebook, twitter, google+ etc, and gain an extra entry!

This is what I'm most in love with! This summer we rode camels at the zoo and this fiber would let me take a great summer memory into the fall, with its gorgeous mix of red and tan! I'd love to learn to spin so I could make this into yarn, then knit it into a cowl for the fall!

Karen said...

Lots to like here. My favorite is Red Pink BFL Roving- BFL Baby Camel Spinning Fiber.

I was totally checking out the kits in their shop the other day! I failed to get a stitches, but decided my luck in getting a fluff was an opportunity to learn to spin!!

I love the rainbow gradient fiber! I think I much prefer gradients... I like to see colors fade out.

It is so difficult for me to resist purchasing a great deal from Katie's shop. She has such a talent for fiber prep and a great eye for color. "Katharine of Aragon" will be coming home to me sometime soon.
