.Suzy Hausfrau.

I knew you guys would love the MillaMia knitting pattern books as much as I do!  It was great to hear that I'm not the only one in a knitting mood at the moment.
Well, today I want to introduce you to a super cool yarn store, Suzy Hausfrau.
 I really love coming across an easy to navigate, clearly set out and inspiring online store and Suzy Hausfrau has mastered all of that!  Suzy Hausfrau is based in Canberra, but ships worldwide and stocks a sensational range of yarn, knitting and crochet supplies and patterns.
To entice you even more, Suzy Hausfrau offers FREE postage on all Australian orders and a very generous 10% discount on all orders over $60!!
I was generously sent some gorgeous MillaMia 100% Extrafine Merino yarn to knit up a dress for Lil.  I chose Storm colourway for the dress.  Not like me to go with a neutral colour, is it?  I'm envisioning this looking cool with some really bright stockings and long-sleeved top underneath so thought it would be good to have a basic base-colour for the dress.
 
This yarn is gorgeous.  It really is super-soft and high quality.  I've always been one to encourage others to use the best quality products that you can afford when hand-making clothing.  If you are going to spend hours pouring so much time and effort into the making, you definitley want to use quality products.  I've already been scouring through knitting patterns to decide what I'm going to knit with this yarn next!!
 
MillaMia yarn comes in a great range of colours.  You can see all of them here.


 Suzy Hausfrau specialises in selling exquisite yarn sourced around the globe - many of the products in their range have not been stocked in Australia before.  You've got to and check out their gorgeous range of BC Garn, Debbie Bliss, Holst Garn and Kalinka Lingarn.  And keep an eye out for new Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett yarns arriving any day now!

Make It Perfect readers are very lucky today - Suzy Hausfrau are giving away $100 gift voucher to spend in their store!!

All you have to do to enter is one or all of the following things...there are four ways to enter and each way is worth a new entry point!  Giveaway closes next Wednesday, 16th May and winner will be drawn randomly.

I love the look of that MillaMia yarn, and it is sport weight which is quite hard to find. So I am glad to find a new retailer of it.

Looks like beautiful yarn, gorgeous colours, but I can't bring myself to let our Aussie wool farmers down! Gives me warm fuzzys to know that the wool I'm click clacking with is home grown, some of it 10 minutes down the road from here. Plus I can buy it straight from the people who farm, spin and hand dye it. Failing that, love Bendigo by mail :)

Heather Perkins said...

What a great giveaway! Love all the yarn!

Rebecca said...

Thanks, great giveaway, I am itching to knit at the moment
