How do we love Quince & Co., let us count the ways...
We love the American Wool collection from Quince & Co.! The collection features lovely (and economical!) American-made yarn that is wonderful to knit with and has beautiful stitch definition. Look for Finch, Chickadee, Lark, Osprey and Puffin in the American Wool collection. We love Owl and Owl Tweet, this soft heathered 50/50 wool with alpaca yarn is a big favorite at Tolt. Tern with its subtle sheen from Tussah silk. Piper and Ibis, made with Texas mohair. Sparrow and Kestrel, gorgeous organic linen. Willet, cleaner cotton and Pheobe, 100% US merino wool.
We love Quince & Co.'s story: that Pam Allen wanted to create yarns from the ground up. We love the careful sourcing of their fibers, how they source and promote domestic wool and other fibers, creating a smaller footprint. When domestic isn't available, sourcing thoughtfully from the most ethical producers; organic linen bases from Europe and cruelty free Tussah silk.
We love the simple, wearable aesthetic of the patterns that Quince releases.
We love Quince's Books.
And books inspired by Quince & Co.'s yarn… (Hannah Fettig's Knitbot books and Home and Away, Carrie Bostick Hoge's Madder Anthologies 1 & 2 and Swoon, Maine, Jane Richmond and Shannon Cook's Journey.)
We will be highlighting Quince & Co. on our blog and in our shop for the whole month of June. We are hosting a trunk show featuring a few Quince favorites, come by and see the projects in person, if you live near our brick and mortar store.
Watch for further posts in the upcoming weeks.
