Squish Alpaca – Limited Edition Tops
Now one of our favourite things to do here at the mill is create bespoke one of a kind limited edition specials and these sublime tops (and skein chums) are some of our favourites yet! This mixture of Alpaca and Merino is so bouncy and soft that we decided to call ’em how we sees ’em, and name this blend Squish.
We’ve been quite selective with our palette this time, keeping these two shades fairly neutral, with some magical pops of bright colour when you look closely. The Alpaca is all undyed so there is a wonderful warm dark chocolate tone to Squish dark and a delicate fawn undertone to the Squish light. We can’t wait to see this pair worked up into your projects!
Laura decided to leave these beauties fairly unblended to allow you folks at home a bit more versatility as to how you spin them. We can imagine more heathered jots of colour being delightful if you fancied spinning from the fold. The tops also really show off the beautiful rich shades of the naturally coloured Alpaca – yum!
