Hand Dyed Yarn from Quaere Fibre Giveaway (Ends 3/16) US

*I received one skein of yarn in exchange for my review.*

Quaere Fibre, in a nutshell, is an awesome Etsy shop!  The yarn that I received to review is an absolute pleasure to crochet.  (I'm positive it would be an equally enjoyable knitting experience as well.  And yes, I realize that the shop's motto is "knit it color", but I was feeling rebellious!)


The shop owner, Janel, is great to work with.  The shop has over 2,000 sales and has an average of a five star rating -- so you can shop with confidence!

The yarn that I received for my review is Bifrost on Tweed.  The yarn arrived safely packaged in a plastic bag inside of an envelope.  (My daughter, Catherine, quickly claimed the blue ribbon!)


This lovely yarn has a base of bright red with pops of a rainbow of colors on the new Tweed base yarn. It is a high twist 2 ply yarn consisting of super soft Superwash Merino with flecks (NEPs of nylon) throughout.  As you can see on the label below, this is an 85% Superwash Merino 15% NEP (nylon) yarn.  This is considered Fingering or Sock Weight.  It is approximately 438 yds/100g.  The care instructions are machine wash cold, lay flat to dry.


This yarn is just so fun to photograph with all of the great colors!


Now for the giveaway!  Also, I have a giveaway for a Craftsy Knitting or Crochet Class (Ends 3/18) that might interest you!

One lucky winner will receive a skein of 
Bifrost on Tweed 
(just like the yarn above).

Fine Print and Details: Giveaway ends March 16, 2014 at 11:59 pm EST. Entrants must be 18+ and US residents.  The winner will be picked via Rafflecopter, so use the form below to enter.  The winner will have 48 hours to claim the prize.  Void where prohibited.  The Philosopher's Wife is not responsible for prize shipment or fulfillment.
