Hilltop Cloud Wives of Henry VIII fiber giveaway!

In November, we had a truly beautiful "Renaissance" inspired box and Katie of Hilltop Cloud sent in these beautiful samples based on the wives of Henry the VIII ! I thought this was a brilliant idea, and I'm so excited to be giving away the set of them here!

Please take some time to explore the Hilltop Cloud website today! We are expecting to see great things coming from Katie in the next few months. She is taking a hiatus from her participation in Phat Fiber to work on other exciting yarn and fibery things :) :)

To enter to win, please select a Hilltop Cloud offering you love and comment about it here on this post. For extra entries, please share in your favorite social network and let us know where  you did!

The colors of the "Coal Fire" handspun yarn are so amazing!

Jessica Jo said...

I like that she has a Wool Free section. While I do love wool, I am starting to experiment with fibers other than Sheep and appreciate the emphasis on Cashmere and other fibers that she has set up.

I love the Birds and Queens Collections both as well as the Black Silk Wool Roving, and the Jacob looks interesting too.

A. Hiscock said...

I love the Henry VIII wives collection, but I've been drawn to the birds collection, too. I've pinned some in the past, but today I particularly fancy Jane Seymour and the nameless blue batt. The Chinese brocade spindle case is absolutely lovely, too.

Pinned! http://www.pinterest.com/owldaughter/spinning-fibre/

The Black, Red and Orange Corespun Art Yarn called Coal Fire really does look just like a coal fire! I can think of so many projects that yarn would be perfect for!

I love the drop spindles and cases.

Peach said...

So many lovely braids! The Anne Boleyn is particularly pretty!

Nicky said...

I'm torn between Katherine of Aragon and Ann Cleves, but all are beautiful. If making something for myself I think Katherine of Aragon just wins- hopefully it blends with both blondish hair and the grey when my hairdressing appointment is overdue!

Nicky said...

I forgot to say- I have just shared your page on my facebook profile
https://www.facebook.com/nicky.butler.18
By the way, I think your fibres are so lovely they would even make my mediocre sinning look good!

Anonymous said...

The Ann of Cleve's spinning fibre is just perfect.
