A Cloudlover Treat & a *GIVEAWAY*

You all know that Cloudlover Yarn & Fiber is one of my absolute favorite shops. Ever. If I scroll back through the grillion photos I have uploaded to this site, this is the very first.

Cloudlover Love.
In case you’re wondering, I have spun all of these fibers up — they are not lingering beautifully in my stash. (Phew!)

And I named the photo “Cloudlover Love.” I’m not even kidding.

I’ve made no fewer than 3 pairs of socks for Socks with Sarah with Cloudlover yarn…

I’ve spun quite a bit of fiber from Cloudlover, too. In fact, my very first ‘Learn to Spin’ kit was purchased from the shop at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival and over the years I don’t think I’ve bought more wool from anywhere else. Some of my favorite spins include…



Printemps & Kimono in a double marl.

Oh, while I’m here I should probably also share my current spin in progress, too, right?

20140710-123446-45286960.jpgI can’t wait to see how this one turns out! And yes, I haven’t said it, but it’s worth putting into words that in addition to beautiful colorways, Cloudlover bases for both yarn & fiber are always top-notch.

I’ve learned and grown and been constantly inspired as both a knitter & spinner largely through the beautiful colorways of Cloudlover Yarn & Fiber. Last year during the Tour de Fleece I even won a 3-month subscription to the fiber club. To no one’s surprise I am completely hooked and have tried all but one of the various clubs throughout the last year. Every month is a surprise that was better than the last & I just so love that!
