Saturday giveaway: Midwinter Fibre

We are rapidly closing in on the midwinter solstice in the northern hemisphere: days are getting shorter, weather is getting colder, and all the shipments have gone out for the midwinter installment of the Wheel of the Year club.

And I have another club giveaway: one for the spinners, this time!  I’m giving away 50g (so half an installment) of the actual club fibre; not a prototype, so it is just the same as the stuff I’ve already shipped to the club members.  I’m not going to say anything about the colours or composition (spoilers!), but I will say that it is suitable for any kind of spinning, from fine laceweight to chunky, and (I think) for needle felting too.

To enter for this giveaway, leave a comment on this post by noon UK time, Monday (December 19th).  This competition is open to everyone, all over the world, so join in and have fun!

  1. Is it greedy to hope I get one of these? My full grown version turned up this morning and is utterly squeeeeee worthy 🙂 Oddly one I have no idea what to make with it but I know how I want to spin it. Now I just need to clear the relevant spindle of its current project…..


  2. I’m on leave from work for 2 weeks and have a brand new ashford wheel just waiting for such as this….


  3. I have missed some previous giveaways.
    This time I am reading this on my Kindle in Germany, and hoping this message gets through.
    The fibre sounds intriguing.


  4. Not a spinner (as you well know!) but very definitely a needle felter and would love to give the mystery fibre a go and let you know if it felts! 🙂


  5. Ooo yes please, count me in for the mystery fibre draw. I seem to have lost my spinning mojo again, despite getting my restored wheel back. And i am sure your lovely fibre would kick start me again.

    Oh and seasons greetings to you. I am so glad the winter solstice is upon us, it means the light will be returning again soon.


  6. I’m such a sucker for sample-sized spinning. When I get depressed, I dig through my completely-thoughtless-that’s-so-pretty bag of fiber purchases and pull out an ounce or two of “I don’t care what it will be, it just makes me happy”.

    Not sure if I squeaked in under the wire or not, but Happy Holidays anyway!
