Queen Conch Yarn Giveaway


This is our second giveaway of this round. If you haven't entered the Fiber Curio giveaway, make sure to add that to your to-do list.

We have a gorgeous extremely rare breed yarn from Queen Conch to giveaway today. I copied the following from her sale page because I love the details of this yarn:

"This gorgeous, deep rich chocolately brown woolen yarn is from the Alpine Bavarian districts of Germany. Family owned farms and co-ops committed to the salvation of this breed process and spun by hand at small production studios. Taken from the Bavarian State Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry: Level of danger: Nearly extinct. The heritage sheep are black with faded tips producing a rich brown. This rustic yarn is ideal for fantastic warn ethnic knits and beautiful stitch definition in Scandinavian,texture, color work or cables."


If you'd like a chance to win this amazing yarn, enter the giveaway at the top of the screen. If you want to be sure to get a skein of this yarn, go to her shop and snatch some up.
Winners will be drawn for all current giveaways in this round on February 20th at 6pm.

How do I win?! Sign in on the giveaway site above. You'll be given several options to gain entries to the giveaway.

The first, and only mandatory entry, is that you will go to Queen Conch find something you love then come back here and comment about it.

You can gain an additional entry for each of the following: "hearting" the Queen Conch Etsy Store, tweeting about the giveaway, or pinning a photo of the roving on Pinterest.

My favorite is the Rare Endangered Breed Sheep Wool 100% Organic Florida Gulf Coast Sheep Yarn "Plums of Paradise". Love the color and I'll bet it's beautiful knitted up. What a hearty flock of sheep, I didn't even know they existed. Love the fact that they have been around so long.

This is a very interresting and educational shop. It has things I didn't know existed like juniper berry chutney and resin buttons and wool from sheep breeds I can hardly pronounce. Hard to pick one favourite but I would be very curious about the juniper berry chutney - I wonder would it go well with the Swedish elk I have in the freezer...
