Alpenglow Yarn Drawing Giveaway!


In Episode 56, I had the pleasure of sharing a story from Carrie Sundra of Alpenglow Yarn about the process of taking yarn from fleece to skein. I had no idea there was so much work involved! Carrie has kindly donated this pile of Alpenglow goodies to this episode's drawing giveaway!




Included in this generous prize are:

-2 skeins of Sporty Corrie in the Ephemar colorway (Red) and a 100g bump of undyed Corriedale Wool roving from her Small Farm line. (Both of these are from the same batch of fiber Carrie talked about in her story!)

-2 skeins of Sylvan Wool in the Starry Night (Blue) colorway from her American Yarn line.

-2 skeins of Peruvian Silke Alpaca in the Boysenberry (Purple) colorway from her Global Yarn line.

Each skein and fiber package have a background story, which Carrie has shared on the labels. 
It's really interesting to find out where everything comes from!

To enter to win this amazing "Alpenglow Sampler", please leave a comment (including contact information) under this post. Only one comment per person please.

The winner will be announced here on September 1, so be sure to check back and see if you have won!

Drawing Now Closed. Winner is Avila! Congratulations!

Victoria said...

This is some truly gorgeous stuff. In the off chance that I do win, I really do not want to receive all of this lovelyness. I would rather spread it out among three people, since it seems to be divided that way. Personally I would like either the Sylvan wool or the Peruvian Silke Alpaca, but not the Sporty Carrie and the bump, as I cannot spin. It seems like that should be owned by someone who can really appreciate it.
Anyway, I am at victoriampageATgmail

That means I need the yarn to make me something for the party! ;)
