The 100K Spinning Drawing! Prizes!!!!











To enter in the 100K Spinning Drawing, leave a comment, or just your name, for this post. You may enter all 3 drawings, but you can only win 1 prize. Winners will be announced tomorrow, April 29.

Spinning Prize #1: 4.8 ozs Brown Organic Cotton Sliver. If you want to try cotton spinning, this is the stuff to use. It spins easily, and the yarn is lovely. You need to boil the skeins to bring out the final color, and to set the twist.


Spinning Prize #2: Just over 4 ozs of hand-dyed Mohair Lamb locks. These locks are incredibly soft and shiny. They've been dyed green, pink, purple, and blue, and I threw in some undyed locks as well. They are VM- free. You can tail-spin these for a novelty yarn, you can flick them open and spin them that way, or you can blend them with other fibers. These locks were used in the small skein in the Yarn Drawing.


Spinning Prize #3: An 8 oz bump of medium Gray Romney pencil roving. This is lovely Romney and it spins like a dream.

Spinning Prize #4: An 8 oz bump of Chocolate Brown Romney pencil roving that has been blended with just a bit of copper glitz for sparkle. It is also lovely and it spins like a dream.
The Spinning Drawing is Officially Open!

Congrats on the 100K landmark! They're all pretty, but I'm mostly interested in the last two as I'm still a beginner and not quite up for the mohair challenge yet.
