Quince and Co.
Quince & Co. was launched in 2010 by Pam Allen in partnership with a historic mill in Maine. Pam has worked in the handknitting industry as a freelance knitwear designer, editor of Interweave Knits, and creative director at a major hand-knitting yarn company.
Since then, Quince has grown its offerings well beyond the core wool yarns and a few patterns, while maintaining the dedication to quality, history, and the modern, clean aesthetic that started it all.
US 3 - 5 /
24 - 26 sts = 4 inches • 181 yards • Sport 100% American Wool 50 gr/3-ply
Chickadee is a little darling, soft, plump, springy, and eager to loop into intricate color patterns or delicate textures. Its three plies, spun from soft American wool, are twisted together firmly enough to be sturdy, yet gently enough to be soft and cushiony.
US 7 - 9 / 12 - 14 stitches/ 4 inches • 76 yards • Heavy Worsted 100% Organic Linen
Kestrel is a new take on a simple linen yarn. We took the same Belgium-grown organic linen that we use in our little Sparrow and spun it this time in a ribbon structure. Kestrel knits up quickly at 3½ to 4 stitches to the inch. Its flat surface adds a slight texture to simple knit and purl stitches. But we think the best thing about it is its incredible drape. Like all things linen, woven or knitted, Kestrel only gets better as you wash and wear it.
