|A blend of Angora and Wool. I've never had real Angora yarn before!|
Ashford Handicrafts is a business that has been around for over 75 years and almost everyone who weaves or spins has heard of them. But they are relatively new on Facebook and wanted to get the word out about their page. So they offered a fiber pack to the first 5 people who could encourage 5 friends to "Like" their page. I immediately fired off messages to all of my fiber friends on Facebook and that is a large number! While I did see that several of my friends answered the call, I never saw an announcement of the contest winners.
|This blend of acrylic, alpaca and polyester feels dreamy!|
Anxious to see what was inside, I didn't waste any time. As I cut into the envelope, it burst open and out popped an amazing array of yarns! Just like they were anxious to see me, too.

The Ashfords are nice folks. You may remember that I met Richard last year at Convergence.
join the club, read the magazine and keep up with them on Facebook. Ashford Handicrafts is a business which seems to be endlessly creative, coming out with new products all the time. They also hold fiber retreats and have a whole thriving community of fiber artists which they are the center of. One day, I hope to get to New Zealand for a visit.
