Giveaway with Sara's Texture Crafts

Sara trained in fashion, working as a Fashion and Textile Designer British Fashion Designers.  She dabbles in lots of wooly crafts including felt making, weaving, crochet - especially spinning and knitting. 

She creates some lovely hand dyed yarns & fibre.  I've often spotted her stall at festivals, it's always busy and looks great.  I particularly love the curly locks of fluff she dyes!




Sara says she strives to source the very best of products to sell.  At the moment, she works with a selection of UK Farmers (locally where possible), crafts people and suppliers to be able to do this.  


**Giveaway now closed** (edit 11/12/14)

For our giveaway, Sara has offered a dyed to order skein of her superwash sock!!  Sara dyed great solids, tonals and variegated yarn.  

To enter, just let us know which of her yarn colours is your favourite and why?!  You can enter here on the blog, and by sharing the blog link on facebook or twitter (remember to let me know where you've shared the link in your comment!).  That's up to three entries for everyone :). Remember to leave your ravelry username or another way to get in touch if you win! 

The giveaway will run for one month until the 10th of December!  

My favourite colours are these two:  'Night' and 'Gunmetal'.  They're a little moody, yet oh so squishable.  And they'd be perfect together for a shawl...  




You can find Saras shop here, or her blog here.

She's also on Ravelry & Twitter!!

  53. My 2 favorites are 'Gunmetal' and 'Summer Flowers.' I've never worked with variegated yarn before and don't usually wear bright colors but Summer Flowers makes me feel adventurous. Gunmetal is more my personality, and what a lovely shade it is. If I am the lucky winner...I think I will choose to be adventurous this time and go with Summer Flowers after all. =)

  56. Always drawn to variegated yarns - would love Bluebell Woods for the subtle mix of colours, or After the Storm as it's my favourite combination of blues and brown/orange. lucy.jennison at yahoo dot co dot uk

    ReplyDelete
  57. It is so difficult to choose just one because there are so many lovely colors. If I had to pick just one, it would be Fall Leaves. Fall is my favorite season. There are few things lovelier than a landscape filled with colorful fall leaves. Shared on FB and Twitter. I'm zookyla on Ravelry.

    ReplyDelete
  58. What a hard decision! I love "Night" because it reminds me of the Doctor's beloved TARDIS. As a purple person, I'm also so very drawn to the tonals Grape and Sarsaparilla and the variegated Peony and Sweet Pea. Heaven!!!

  63. Absinth is my favourite it reminds me of the beautiful teal coloured evening skies we get in late summer just before they start to get the first hints of pink from the setting sun

    ReplyDelete
  64. Dartmoor is my favourite because it reminds me of many happy family holidays spent in Devon :)

  65. Oooh, I think Gunmetal. Goes with the weather atm (dreich and dismal!) but a bright contrast heel and toe would look fabulous with it!

    ReplyDelete
  66. It is getting dark now so I will go with the 'night'. Such wonderful colours

  67. i have to pick just one?! but they're all so pretty... :P
    i love the rich tones of Claret, and the depth of Night. Petal is really sweet and innocent, but not something i can see myself wearing. unless it was a highlight colour with black or navy...
    but really. i love them ALL!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  71. I adore Bluebell Woods!! The mix of mossy green, cream, and a rich blue remind me of where a forest meets the ocean, perhaps on a cliff side. Miss on stone, deep blue waves, a hint of purple in the sky. Just a beautiful mix! I'm knitwild on Ravelry :)
