Handspun Super Bulky Yarn Giveaway (Ends 11/20) US


I have a lovely Etsy shop that I'd like to share with you today.  It's called Purple Lamb.  This shop specializes in handspun & hand-dyed yarn, art batts, roving, and even some artisan pieces.  Each skein of yarn is handspun by Carla.  (I have to say, I was incredibly fascinated by her spinning blog post.  It's certainly worth a look.)  Purple Lamb has been on Etsy for a while and has a five star rating -- always a good sign when you're looking for a new little yarn shop.



One lucky winner will receive this incredibly unique yarn.
