sponsor giveaway – luxfish handspun yarns

I started knitting when I was 18. I was visiting a friend, who’s grandmother was visiting too. She would sit down with her knitting every night. I gradually saw the transformation from a ball of yarn into a wee baby sweater. I was enamored and had to learn! My first scarf was pretty holey! My first hat didn’t fit anyone! But I fell in love and was soon knitting for everyone! I found that after a few years, I was growing a yarn habit I couldn’t afford….hand dyed silks, handspun angoras, rare Peruvian cottons, and bright naturally dyed wool. I thought to myself, if I can knit, why can’t I spin? So I found a learn to spin kit and I was set. I was obsessed! I tried every kind of fiber I could get my hands on! And now after four solid years of spinning, I tend to gravitate towards softer wool blended with curly locks for texture or bamboos and silks for shine. I always strive to make my yarns one of a kind with rich, saturated colour. I want my yarns to feel luxurious when you are working with them.
I update every Sunday at 11:00 MT unless otherwise noted on my facebook page. I alternate my updates between my etsy shop and my big cartel shop. I am always willing to work with anybody on a custom order too. If you can dream up a yarn, I can probably bring your dream into reality!

    As part of my Day Zero project I plan to crochet an afghan. This yarn would be a beautiful to use for a centre piece. I intend to use either all hand made yarn in order to support small businesses.
