Giveaway Time: Malabrigo Nube

I am proud to present the first ever Abso-knitting-lutely giveaway today. It is open to all EU residents so get in on it! 
You will already know Malabrigo for their wonderful yarn, but have you tried their fibre yet? Malabrigo kindly sent me samples of their Nube spinning fibre and I will randomly pick one lucky winner who will get approx. 113g (4 oz) of this luscious hand-dyed 100% merino braid. The winner will receive the Arco iris colourway, which is a wild mix of greens, yellow, purple and pinks. See Malabrigo's whole range here. 
Now the important bit. To win, please comment below with a link to a photo of your own handspun and tell me what your favourite spinning tool is and why. Easy! 

The giveaway ends on 9 September 2014. Keep an eye on the blog for the announcement of the winner shortly after. Good luck, everyone!


  1. I love my Spanish Peacock Tibetan spindle as it produces beautifully even yarn. The link is to my very first handspun sock yarn. It won't be my last as I love my socks.

  2. I don't spin, but my best friend does, and I do knit, so here's a picture from some handspun yarn I've knitted into a lovely fingerless mitt !

  3. My favourite tool would have to be a good wheel. I have a Kromski. With a good wheel your spinning improves instantly! Here is the a link to my latest spinning project:

  4. I've only just found your lovely little blog :)
    I'm a newbie spinner and I've only been spinning a little over a month but don't practice any where near enough. My favourite tool is my gorgeous little westbury wheel which is second hand to me and I've only manage to spin two skeins so far ...

  5. It's been a while, but I did spin this batt:

    My favorite tool for spinning is my Ladybug wheel!
