The Hippie Homemaker Giveaway


Our last giveaway of this round is from the Hippie Homemaker. Claire likes to enable those fiber lovers who have yet to dive into spinning from their knitting, crochet, and weaving obsessions. If you've never spun your own yarn, it really is a rewarding and beautiful opportunity to create the exact yarn you're interested in working with.


This spindle is of average beginner weight. That means that you can spin a fairly think yarn with the fluff or if you are a fast learner, spin something finer. If you are a wheel spinner but you've never tried the spindle, this is a good way to start as well. Claire says: "These spindles have a whorl diameter of 3 inches, and are approximately 13 inches long from the hook to the bottom of the spindle."

I'm a terrible person and I forgot to take a photo of the fluff that comes with this spindle. It's a soft green, but we'll let it be mostly a surprise. When you go to her shop, you'll see that any fiber you receive will be gorgeous!


How do I win?! FIRST sign in on the giveaway widget 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 Shiny Briny 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 Shiny Briny Etsy Store, tweeting about the giveaway, or pinning a photo on Pinterest.

You will earn three additional entries for making a purchase in the  Shiny Briny Etsy Store and sharing the transaction ID.

Thank you for supporting our independent artists. They are the only reason we have Phat Fiber to obsess over! Be sure to respond if I send you an email letting you know that you've won!
