These colours are inspired by the spring crocuses that pop up just when winter seems to be never ending. The gold and lilac are beautiful against the stony grey. The muted effect of dyeing these colours on to a grey/humbug base is really lovely, and the subtle humbug of the base will give a fantastic depth of colour.
40% Shetland/40% Cheviot/20% Alpaca
This is a beautiful blend with a lovely hand. It’s soft, crimpy and has a slight halo, thanks to the alpaca. Both alpaca and Shetland are beautifully warm, so whatever you make with this it will keep you cosy and toasty. Shetland and Cheviot are both very resilient wools, so this blend is perfect for things like socks and mittens. Shetland especially has fantastic water resistant properties, so it would also make for great hats to wear in wintry snow. It would almost make wonderful sweaters!
I can easily wear this blend next to my skin, but it might be slightly too coarse for those sensitive to wool.
