Hilltop Cloud blended fiber giveaway!



I am always so impressed with the samples that come in from Hilltop Cloud! The quality of Katie's fiber is top notch. This particular fiber is so lovely, because it's called "Robin" and it really makes me think feathery bird!

This giveaway fiber is a beautiful combed BFL, Merino, Manx and Yak! It's sooo nice! Looks like there are several more of this fiber blend in the Hilltop Cloud shop! I think one of the best things about Hilltop Cloud is the selection of rare British Sheep breed fiber. It's perfect for self study, as you can order several from one supplier- in the U.K.- who has in some cases, a repertoire with the farms where the fiber was raised.

If you would like to be entered to win this pretty fiber, please visit Hilltop Cloud today, and choose an item listed in the shop to comment about here on this post.  We'll award extra entries to those who share on other social networking platforms!

I would love to get my hands on the gray Jacob roving.

rvknitz said...

I love that she always has wool from breeds that are new to me. Captivated by "dorset horn wool", sounds rugged and exotic at the same time!

I can't go past the gorgeous 'Carded Batt- Blue Spinning Fiber- BFL', the length of BFL and it's shine with the silk is something else - begging to be spun laceweight!
