Happy September! Spinner registration for Spinzilla begins today, and we’d like to cordially invite you to join #TeamLouet for Spinzilla this fall! The third annual Spinzilla event will be taking place October 5-11, 2015 during Spinning & Weaving Week. Last year, we placed in the top three teams for the event overall, and we’re looking for a few great spinners to join our ranks as we reach for the Golden Niddy Noddy.
In addition to the many prizes which are up for grabs for all Spinzilla participants, we will be rewarding our own team of spinners with lots of fibery prizes:
Team Thank-You: Everyone who turns in their final yardage at the close of Spinzilla will receive a thank-you gift valued at $100! We’ll be creating a special fiber pack for our hard-working spinners which includes two 1/2 lb. bags of Merino Silk, a 1/2 lb. bag of Dyed Merino and a Lavishea Spinzilla lotion bar!
Monster Mile Club: Each person who spins a mile of yarn (1760 yards) during Spinzilla will win their choice of in-stock fibers valued at $100 – plus they will get a special badge they can add to their Ravelry profile, blog, or website!
Top 3 Spinners by Yardage: We’ll be awarding $300 worth of ins-stock spinning fibers (winner’s choice!) to our top 3 spinners who report the most yardage for our team at the close of Spinzilla!
The registration fee is just $10, and all of the proceeds benefit the Needlearts Mentoring Program (NAMP), which fosters the spinners of tomorrow. Click here to sign up for Spinzilla – and be sure to select Team Louet North America!
We’ve been preparing for Spinzilla by offering specially-priced fiber packs each month, and our September Fiber Pack has just been released! This is our second-to-last fiber pack, and we’ve hand-picked some of our favorite dyeable natural fibers to pair with our Gaywool dyes, giving spinners even more creativity at their fingertips. This pack includes:
- 1 lb. Wensleydale Top
- 1 lb. Superwash Merino Top
- 1 lb. Wool/Mohair Blend
- 1 Gaywool Dye Starter Kit (Original or Bush Blend)
- 20% off coupon for Gaywool Dyes ordered separately!
