Wooly Wednesday: Cascade Yarn Giveaway

IMG_2217

Its finally here! Yarn Giveaway time. When I announced the start of Wooly Wednesdays I promised some free yarn to one lucky person. Sadly my following Wooly Wednesday post ended up being very long and I didn’t want the giveaway to be hidden at the end. I decided it deserved a blog post of its own.

I choose this specific yarn because it is what I used to make my Crochet Christmas Cowl. This way the winner has the option of making the cowl. If you are more of a knitter this yarn would be beautiful knitted up into a simple cowl, scarf, or a matching hat and fingerless mitt set. Two skeins gives you plenty of yardage to work with!

This yarn is from Cascades Cloud line of yarns. The chainette construction of the yarn allows it to be warm without being too heavy. The yarn I am giving away is clarified as being “Eco” Cloud because it is made from undyed merino and alpaca fibers. The result is lovely natural and neutral colors. You can see the rest of the color options here.  Their regular Cloud yarn comes in a wide range of colors if you need a bit more variety.

THE GIVEAWAY:

I will send the winner, chosen at random, two skeins of the Eco Cloud yarn by Cascade in the Charcoal (1810) colorway. I will also cover the cost of shipping. This yarn normally retails at $15-$17 a skein.

HOW TO ENTER:

Tell me in a comment below your favorite place to shop for yarn, why it is your favorite, and where it is. I love to support local yarn shops and sometimes they can be hard to find. This way I can have a list at my disposal to check whenever I am traveling.

You can also enter by sending me an email at wildflowerweston@hotmail.com.

*Make sure you include a way I can reach you (email, etc) if you are the winner.

*The LAST DAY to enter is November 30.

THE DRAWING:

Everyone who has commented or emailed will be entered and I will randomly pick a name Dec 1. The winner will be personally notified and mentioned in the following Wooly Wednesday post. I will ship the yarn as soon as I receive a response from the winner. If no response is received within a week, a new winner will be chosen.

*PLEASE NOTE*

This contest is only open to residents of the CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES. The cost of shipping to other locations is too prohibitive.

 

I can’t wait to hear about your favorite yarn shops and to see what the winner makes with their yarn. We have some lovely snow falling right now here in Vermont. Luckily we have no holiday traveling but if you are traveling I hope the snow isn’t getting in your way! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  1. Unfortunately my schedule doesn’t leave me much time to go shopping at the local yarn shops. There are some good ones in NYC, and I know of two LYS about a half hour away from me (in Hoboken, NJ). I have yet to make my way there. So for now, it’s online for me – eatsleepknit.com is a dangerous place for me to be on!

    • I just looked them up – what a cool website! Do you know if they are having any sales for small business Saturday or cyber Monday?
      Thanks for entering 🙂

  2. I can’t enter because I live in the UK but Baa Ram Ewe is my Local Yarn Shop in my home city of Leeds. I love it because it celebrates my home city and counties woolie heritage http://baaramewe.co.uk/pages/about-us

    • What a beautiful shop. I have been to Great Britian several times but I have never been to Leeds. I am looking forward to the next time I can travel- there are some amazing British yarns. When I had my LSY I carried Rowan- it was expensive but wonderful to knit with. Maybe next time I do a giveaway I can open up to everyone 🙂 Thank you for commenting.

  3. I have two fav LYS. Both are 30-50 minutes away, so not that local. LOL. Sheepskeins in Newburgh, IN is the closer and has a lot of space and great yarns. It’s where I go for a weekly knit together. The other is Atkinson Farm Yarns in Vincennes, IN. This shop expanded so now she has a lot more space, great yarns and just the nicest owner you could ever meet! I have never used Coud, will have to look into that one.

  4. One of my favorite local fiber stores is called Fibre Space. It’s located in Old Town (Alexandria) Virginia, on King Street. Besides them having beautiful yarns and fibers to spin, my favorite thing about them is that they support local spinners and dyers by offering their products for sale in their shop.

  5. During the NJ Wool Walk, I was able to find some places I thought were really nice in selection, staff, and atmosphere. I recommend checking out:
    **The Blue Purl in Madison, NJ
    **A Stitch in Time in Farmingdale, NJ
    **Chelsea Yarns in Colts Neck, NJ

    Such sweet places!

    There are also quite a few others you can find if you Google “NJ Wool Walk 2014”

  6. I don’t usually shop in stores if I want large quantities of yarn 😀 I shop online at Hancock fabrics, or maybe lionbrand, or Craftsy. Craftsy sometimes has decent sales!

  7. I don’t generally go to shops, since tend to order it online. There is one store that I do occasionally visit in northern VT, The Ewephorium. I like that store because they encourage buying local, and the owner always recognizes me every time I go back. She always asks about what I’ve made and what I’m making, and is very helpful and friendly.

  8. I like michaels & jo-anns.

  9. Hi Catherine Garcia! You are the winner of the giveaway! Please shoot me an email with your mailing address so I can send it to you. wildflowerweston@hotmail.com
