The name Squoffle comes courtesy of a friend, who phoned me whilst I was travelling to say she had picked up something special for tea. As she poured through descriptions of gorgeous starters and a sumptuous main course and what wine we might enjoy, I of course only had ears for what was to be for dessert. Looking at the packaging, she said over the phone in a confused voice ‘Squoffle?’ A Small tear in the cardboard had partially obscured the ‘o’ of ’soufflé’, and so the word squoffle was born.
I like to think of the squoffle as meaning a ’squishy waffle’ and with it’s frothy texture and grid of eyelets, it’s a name that seemed to suit this little scarf quite well.
