Malabrigo "Nube" roving giveaway!

ETA: Turns out shipping these two rovings separately is going to cost a lot, so please note that there'll be only one winner who receives both wool rovings!

A couple of days ago, I received a huge package of yarn from Malabrigo to use as prizes in my Voluminosa KAL that starts on September 15th.

Along with the beautiful skeins of yarn that I'm handing out throughout the KAL, I got two pure merino rovings from Malabrigo called "Nube", which means "cloud" in Spanish. This is a soft merino dream for spinners!


I'm giving away these two beauties to one lucky winner!

The first one is in the beautiful color Archangel, which is a lovely mix of reds, greens and violets:


The second one is the beautiful Zarzamora, which has blue, green and purple shades:


If you want the chance to win these wonderfully soft merino "clouds", please leave a comment to this post, telling me which of the two you'd want to win. (Please note that there will now only be drawn one winner who receives both merino rovings! However I'd still like to know which of the two you like more, so comment away!)

This contest is international! Please make sure that I have some way of contacting you if you win, either by Ravelry username, email address etc.

The giveaway runs through October 13th (all timezones). I'll contact the winner within a day. If you don't respond within a week, I'll draw a new winner, so please make sure that the contact information you provide is correct!

Good luck to all of you and happy knitting - and spinning!

  40. I have been drooling over Nube everywhere I've seen it since I heard about it! I have yet to get my hands on any, but would take some in about any colorway they offer! If I had to choose between these two right now, I think I would go with the Archangel. Both just stunning though. Thanks for offering such a great prize!

  45. Very tough call-I've worked with both colours as yarn, and Archangel is really so stunning that I will call it my favourite of the two. I'm florapie on Ravelry too!

  46. So looking forward to the Voluminosa KAL beginning on Sunday!
    Tough call but Zarzamora is my fav of the two.... oh just the thought of drafting those luscious fibers out and passing them through my fingers to the wheel is almost too much to bear! Okay so I'm a bit obsessed... I just love the blue, green, and purple blends - a heavenly vision....

    Thank you for you generous spirit and heart!
