Audine Wools Chill is a lusciously soft worsted weight blend of 90% Suri Alpaca and 10% Cashmere. If you’ve never worked with Suri before, you are in for a treat! Suri alpaca fiber is smoother than Huacaya and is very silky. Combined with cashmere, you’ll kick back and chill with each 150 yds (137 m) skein.
Members will receive 2 matching skeins in one of these 6 colorways.
Let’s Get Crazy: This warm lavender with a hint of blue brings a lightness to both yarn and paint color palettes.
Water’s Like Me, It’s Lazy: Serene rippling lake waves come to mind with this deep cadet blue. It may be always looking for the easiest way to do things, but we’re quite okay with that.
Happy Little Tree: What would our collection be without a few happy little trees? A deep forest green, this shade contrasts well with several of this month’s colorways.
Beauty is Everywhere: Beauty abounds in this deep maroon shade with bits of burgundy flecks.
A Little Cabinectomy: Is that a little cabin I spy back in the woods in shades of van dyke brown and burnt sienna? This warm and gentle bark-brown is peeking out from the trees.
Clouds are Very Very Free: Just the tiniest bit of bright red in the titanium white is what we find in this gray shade with the tiniest hint of pink. It’s perfect when your project needs happy little clouds that are very free floating in the sky.

Not a Cloud in the Sky: Clear and crisp skies bring inspiration to this bright turquoise colorway.
Tiptoe Through the Tulips: Floral visions fill our minds with this muted red-orange shade, similar to those you find in Cairo, Ballerina, and Orange Princess tulips.
