Wonderful Woolly Holidays – US Wool Giveaway!

We here at The Felting and Fiber Studio would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season. In celebration, we will be hosting several giveaways for your woolly pleasure! To make this a little easier and less expensive on postage, we are doing more than one give away by country. Please make sure and sign up for the correct one depending on where you live.

My friend Paula is the one to thank for all the woolly goodness. She has decided to give away her wool supply as she is no longer doing any felting. She has moved on to other art forms.

So I have piles of mainly wool, mainly merino. Some of it is marked as to what it is and some isn’t. Some has been in plastic bags for a while and may be a bit matted down. But that shouldn’t bother any of you since if you win, it’s free!

Here’s a photo that shows just a very small sample of the wool that we have to give away. I have sent a box to Canada for Ann and Jan to give away and a box to the UK for Lyn and Annie of Rosiepink to give away. We will have three separate giveaways, a US giveaway, a Canada giveaway and a UK giveaway. Please only comment and sign up for the give away if you are in the corresponding country. If your name is drawn and you aren’t in the appropriate country, another name will be drawn.

The first giveaway is for readers in the USA. If you would like to win a padded envelope full of wool and a few other embellishments, please comment below. Tell me what colors you would like to receive (I will keep your color choices in mind while preparing your packet of wool) and what you want to create from the wool. Feel free to spread the word through social media. I will announce three winners in my post next week. The Canada and UK drawings will be in the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for those posts.

Please only enter the giveaway if you live in the US.

About ruthlane

When I discovered felting in 2007, I finally found the creative outlet for which I had been searching. I love that the versatility of fiber allows me to “play” with a wide variety of materials including wool, silk, fabrics, yarns and threads. Creating one of a kind fiber art pieces to share with the world fulfills my creative passion.

    What a lovely idea! Gook luck, all. As for me, I’ve been working on landscapes done in needle felting, so any earth tones would be awesome.

  2. Stacey Street says:

    Hello! I am new to felting, previously doing work in glass, and am loving the ability to blend and transition colors. Nuno felting has grabbed my interest and I would make nuno felted scarves with the yarn. I love corals and oranges and shades of vanilla as well.
    Dec 13 is my 60th birthday so maybe I will be very lucky!
    Thank you,
    Stacey Street

  3. Janet Chalmers says:

    Thank you for the wool give away. I would love to try a needle/wet felted wall hanging with a green background and a variety of flowers in the foreground. This is so generous and I’d be happy to receive anything as part of the give away.

  4. Janet Mendez says:

    I love all fall colors with a pop of purple ! I wet felt and am starting lambscapes. Enjoying every minute

  5. Karen Gordon says:

    How lovely! Thank you for this opportunity! I have been working with wet felted floral landscapes and gardens, but am also working on a Maine seascape series. That said, blues and greens and earthy colors would be great, but there’s always room for bright reds, pinks and yellows! Anything would be just lovely! Thank you again and best wishes for the holiday season!

  6. Ting Yao says:

    Thank you so much for the giveaway! I will make a felted bag with my friends, I need extra warm colored woolly goodness! Thank you and happy holidays!

  8. Thank you for being generous. I am new to felting and would love the chance to combine it with my rug hooking. I love natural colors as well as reds! Anything is appreciated. Thanks.

  9. Lillian Johnson says:

    I live in the US and would love to win the five giveaway contest.
    I make wearables- scarves, hats, & purses from various colors so all colors are fine.
    I’m including my email below.
    Good luck to all the entrees.👍

  10. A.M. Nelson says:

    I have been trying to wet felt slippers, but would like to try landscapes, bird pods, cat caves, etc. I love the jewel tones of Autumn and Earth tones. I would also like to try needle felting. Thank you for the chance to win a giveaway.

  11. Jackie says:

    I would like to felt gnomes for the holidays. Thanks!

  12. Frances says:

    Frances Tidd francestidd@gmail.com – love all colors except for browns and purples – make hats, vessels, neckwear Happy Holidays

  13. Janet Smith says:

    Could use this under my Christmas tree

  14. Carla Mackey says:

    Awesome idea-and so generous!
    What I would make with the wool would really depend on what I received. I might create 3D figures, a 2D picture, or most likely experiment with the wool and technique and come up with something unique. I really wouldn’t know until the wool “spoke” to me.

    I’m open to all colors!

  15. JAMES says:

    I use wool to wet felt pieces as well as needle felt, then I incorporate with my hand dyed quilting. Earth tones and bright colors are my favorites

  16. Marion Kennedy says:

    I love trying out new projects and learning new techniques and would use these fibres for something I’ve not tried before. I would be thrilled with any colours but I love jewel tones.
    Thank you so much for this generous giveaway.

      Hello, I am new to felting. I currently am working on wet felting and nuno felting. I do a little needle felting after I’ve wet felted. Although I am open to all colors, I enjoy deeper tones of burgundy, gold, green and orange. Thank you to Paula and Ruth for making this “sharing” possible.

  17. Jess M says:

    I would make a felted vessel or bowl. Greens and yellows. Thank you for making this giveaway happen! Happy holidays!

  18. Deb N says:

    What a wonderful holiday prize! I’m just experimenting with vessels and pods and would love any cool colors.

  19. Linda Clemow says:

    Great idea!! I’m doing needle felting right now. I love all the posts! Great examples of all things wool.

  20. Charlotte says:

    just starting to do some fiber art – very much fun

  21. Jill Chadek says:

    I’ve been traveling all day so I hope that I meet the time deadline. I am creating felted garments for a gallery event on wearable art. This is my first opportunity of this sort. I love color so any combination would be inspiring. Thank you for all of the information you so generously share.

  22. Dianne Davis says:

    Ooh, nice to see a new (to me) supplier. I am on a hat felting craze, and I’m introducing my 87 yo mom to wet felting tomorrow! I would love some greens to make myself a warm felted hat for my Oregon hikes.

  23. Cindy Stroud says:

    Thanks for the opportunity. Your generosity is most appreciated. Projects would depend upon the wool, however my current interest is in making 3D wet-felted nudibranchs, also known as sea slugs. There’s no limit to the colors they exhibit.

  24. Gillian K Hewitt says:

    What a generous offer and a great way to start the holiday season. I made three needle felted gnomes today and have run out of red for their hats so that would be nice along with other jewel tones. Thanks for the opportunity and Happy Holidays to you!

  25. sttamburo says:

    What a lovely gesture during the Holidays. I am currently working on a series of pods for a show in January and would welcome an envelope filled with inspiration. I love all colors and all types of embellishments. Thanks for your generosity to share this windfall of fiber!

  26. Miriam Young says:

    I have been felting for about 4 years. I’m very interested in sculptural felting and creating pieces with lots of different textures. My color palette tends toward blues, greens and purples. I’d use the wool to experiment more with creating shapes and textures

  27. linda prine says:

    I have been felting for about 3 years and love it. I just completed my 2nd class and made a whimsical wall hanging. I will try to post a photo……I am registered to take a rug class on Whidbey Island, WA in June using pre felts. Looking forward to 4 days of felting. If I win this giveaway, I will continue working on whimsical pieces. I now make scarves and hats.
    Happy Holidays

  28. Gail says:

    I plan to make a hat for winter (a happy hat to keep te dreary out) my colors are blues or reds. Thank you.

  29. Grace Sines says:

    I am new to wet felting and came across this WONDERFUL website this morning. I would love to make a warm and soft wet felted scarf. My favorite colors are purples and blues. Have been doing a lot of reading and am ready to begin.
    Thank you so much for your generous give-away. Good luck to all who enter.

  30. Debbie H says:

    I have 3 friends that would like me to teach them wet felting….or maybe I should say begin the enabling process with them! These blog posts, which I receive via email, are always enjoyable, informative and a must read. I would love a chance to win any variety of colors as I would like to teach my friends a small clutch bag felted around a resist, for a beginner project. Thank you to all the contributors that give their time in effort into creating this blog, and thanks to you for an opportunity to win such a fun surprise!

  31. Shoshana Avramovitz says:

    Wow what a beautiful thing:)
    I am a glass and encaustic wax artist and recently acquired some felting supplies from a very ill artist friend who has since passed. I think of her often on this new amazing journey in wool fiber. I’m just loving it, the colors and feel of the wool makes me happy:)
    Thanks for doing this hugs 🤗

  32. Jeannette Ringuette says:

    I am a beginner crafter of wool. So I have been playing a bit with wet felting. This winter I want to play with needle felting. I love red, yellow, but all the colors under the sun are awesome. Thanks for your website. You provide so much great inspiration!
