Three Waters Farm Lilac Road Merino/Tussah Giveaway!






It's September! I'm so excited for Autumn. It is a favorite time of year for me. I've made a giant coffee cake and some banana bread and it's filled my home with wonderful baking smells. Of course, it's still stifling hot outside! The time of warm cups of tea snuggled down under a blanket pouring over knitting books is nigh! Time to really churn out some yummy handspun to make into must-have fall essentials like hats and scarves!

I can't think of something more luxurious and gorgeous to spin as the weather turns cooler than some beautifully painted merino/tussah silk from Three Waters Farm! This particular braid is called "Lilac Road" but the colors really remind me of how nature is looking now- bright blue skies with hints of turning leaves here and there :)

If you would like to enter to win this beautiful fiber from Three Waters Farm, please visit their Etsy shop today, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below. We'll count your social networking on platforms like pinterest, facebook, twitter, google+ etc as extra entries- please let us know where you've shared!

I've been purely salivating over this merino/bamboo/silk in the Frost colorway at Three Waters. Gorgeous doesn't begin to cover it.

I absolutely love the Polwarth/Silk Roving in the colorway August. Reminds me of changing leaves on the trees with a hint of blue sky and green grass thrown in. Lovely!

Jennifer said...

I love the Mixed BFL/ Silk Roving - Hand Painted Spinning or Felting Fiber, Dark Spirit. Gorgeous color combination!

Polwarth/Silk Roving - Hand Painted Spinning or Felting Fiber, Blue Violet Tonal - so pretty

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I like the Goat's Milk Soap in Oatmeal and the merino wool roving hand dyed spinning or felting fiber in the King of Beasts colorway. I think that colorway would make a beautiful finished project for fall.

Kris C said...

I love the colorways Landscape, Frost, and Fall Foliage (then again, I love ALL the colorways)... :)

A. Hiscock said...

Oh, my! The alpaca/merino/silk "First Bloom" is lovely, my neutrals side wants the merino "Faithful," and I'd love to see how "Grey Reflections" on the mixed BFL spins up.

Pinned some of the pretties to my Spinning & Fibre board: http://pinterest.com/owldaughter/spinning-fibre/

Ely said...

It looks like they know their fall colours, August, Fall foliage or Bursting light in polwarth and about half of the BFL could easily go into my shopping cart.

camphillpeaches said...

Rebekah Evelyn said...

I like the Bursting Light fiber.

Lindr said...

'Dappled Sunlight' in Polwarth/silk is stunning!

I'm in love with the bursting light roving!!!

Shelley Still said...

Winsome on BFL at Three Waters reminds me of summer days with the sun in the sky,a cloud floating by like a tuft of cotton. Flowers planted and tended. Freshly mown grass. Watching the colors blend through my hands placing memories of another summer closing . Taking part of summer through the dance of fall colors and the slumber of Winter.

Luv2CUSmile said...

Loving the Half Light in Polwarth & Silk & the Merino Bamboo Silk top too! Oooh Yummy!!

Spazecaze said...

I came across your site from checking out my sister's Phat Fiber boxes :) I will admit.. I fell down a fiber hole when I went to your Etsy site. If I had to choose (please don't make me, lol!) I can't stop eyeing October Brights, Bottom Land and Fall Foliage. I have also been pinning some of these on Pinterest. Absolutely amazing!

Chelsea W said...

I want to try the Goat's milk Oatmeal Lavender soap and LOVE the Costeau roving. All of their roving is gorgeous!

cgiblet said...

I have always adored the colourway 'Caliente' particularly in Polwarth/Silk - biggest gripe is that it is hardly ever in the shop and disappears SO quickly when it is!
