Moonlight and Laughter Merino Giveaway!

Moonlight and Laughter has to be in my top 5 indie dyers list! I love Marilla as a person, and her dyeing skills are awesome! There are a few colorways I have seen Marilla do, one of which she usually calls "Marilla's Garden" it's an amazing mixture of plum, pumpkin, and asparagus colors- such a perfect fall colorway!

I'm seeing tons of cool blue in Moonlight and Laughter now- would be beautiful and refreshing to spin during TDF!

We're giving away this 4 oz Merino braid called "Blue in Green" it's so soft and pretty!

Neurotic Knitterz Sock Yarn Giveaway!

Yay! Another fun giveaway from Neurotic Knitterz! I am really loving the new hand dyed yarns in the shop! LOVE the Dr. Who inspired yarns! Here is a little tidbit from Maggie and Kellee about this one we're giving away:

A Dr. Who inspired yarn.

We really wanted to welcome Rory Williams and Amy Ponds baby in with a bang. This is a tribute to the little gal that has been kidnapped with the hope to defeat the dearest Doctor. The only catch is this little darling grows up to be the mysterious River Song.

Splash painted for a shaded look.

Colors: pink, violet, brown, black, blue, grey.

June 2011 contribution to Phat Fiber.

Create Your Own Spice Batt from All for Love of Yanr Giveaway!

Last month was our beautiful "Spice Market" box. I meant to do this giveaway a long time ago- but when my emergency remodel reared its head, I put it out of my mind! This is SO MUCH FUN! For those of you who don't have a drum carder (and those that do but want to save your arms for a bit lol) this is your chance to play with colors and have a pro blend your batt for you! I hope Angela of All for Love of Yarn decides to keep this feature (maybe switch the colors every so often) for good!

Angela made me a beautiful batt and it was like she read my mind- I said something like "like this but with more blue" and she cranked out one of those I'm-going-to-put-you-on-a-shelf-and-look-at-you batts! I'm telling you, this is what you need for the upcoming tour de fleece!

You might have also noticed that All for Love of Yarn won Shearlock and Sonata's choice award for May! We're giving away the chance to create your own unique batt using the fibers in the above picture. Just visit All for Love of Yarn today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be counting your twitter and facebook updates as extra entries!

Into the Whirled Carded Batt Giveaway!

Hee hee!! I told you, you would be excited about the giveaways this week!! You might recognize this beautiful batt as one from Into the Whirled. I love her batts. I love them so much, I haven't bought one in a while and I'm really needing to. They are really perfect for every spinner- perfect, that word really describes them.

We're giving away this beauty called "Nebula" which also happens to be the colorway in June's Sci Fi box this month! All you need do, is visit Into the Whirled today, find something you love, write about it in the comments section below and you're entered to win.

North Star Alpacas Tribute Yarn giveaway!

I love LOVE Northstar Alpacas. Maple and her lovely fiber animals have been contributing to the Phat Fiber experience since darn near the very beginning.

His picture is so proud and floofy and his fiber is just sooo soft and yummy!

We're giving away this beautiful, amazing, gorgeous 75% Alpaca 25% Merino Tribute yarn today. It's 250 yards of lofty worsted weight bliss, I tell you.

Fiber Fancy Salt and Pepper Roving Giveaway!

Time to gear up for Tour de Fleece! Maybe part of your tour, you'd like to spin more exotic fibers like alpaca, but you want to get your feet wet first. Enter Fiber Fancy's May Spice Market Box submission "Salt and Pepper" aka: The Good Old Days. It's 2/3 Local Alpaca and 1/3 small farm Corriedale cross. That Corriedale in there makes it easier than straight alpaca to spin, and it gives it a nice bounce.

We'll be drawing for a winner soon, so make sure you use facebook and twitter and other social networking sites to your advantage- by letting everyone know about this, you'll be entered again in the drawing, just  make sure you tell us where you did it.
