Quince and Co. yarn company is arriving soon!

I am just way to excited about Quince and Co. to actually wait until they have launched to post about them!  So here is just a quick one:)

Pam Allen and Carrie Bostick Hoge are the creative team behind the soon-to-be-launched Quince and Co. yarn company. They will be launching their online site with their first 4 yarns composed of American wool and made into yarn right here in Maine.  I have been lucky enough to get to sample all 4, and they are beyond amazing!  Each of the 4 yarns is a different weight, however, they are not varied simply by adding or subtracting plies.  The structure and twist of each of the 4 yarns has been worked to make each one unique and to work best at the gauge that they are intended to be knit at.

And of course with Pam and Carrie, you know that there will be lovely designs to support each of the 4 yarns!

Here is a hat that I have designed and knit in the lightest weigh of the first 4 Quince yarns.  I will have the pattern ready and up for sale as soon as the Quince site is open for business:)

Here is the link to the Quince and Co website. (You can sign up for their newsletter!)

Also, you can see some sneak peeks on their Facebook page and follow Quince on Twitter as well.

I am just thrilled that a company formed by such wonderful, caring, hard working, and incredibly talented people will soon be entering our knitting world!



  1. So pretty! I can’t wait to see it with the unveiling of Quince & Co. 🙂 What an exciting new endeavor!

  2. Lovely hat — can’t wait to see the yarns!

  3. That’s a beautiful hat, Cecily! And, thank you for all your kind words my dear. Pam and I are so excited for Q yarns to be out in the knitting world. And soon they will be!

  4. This hat is gorgeous!!

  5. Excited to see something new and it sounds good too, coming to a market that seems kind of stagnant sometimes ( you have to remember I am Scottish though).

  6. There was a pullover in Interweive Knits and an article about Quince & Co. The pattern was a pullover in Aran Weight Ospray.
    How do I get this pattern?

  7. I found you in the Interweave Knits book, winter 2010. There is a pattern on page 72 that I am very much interested in and would also like to know what type of yarn is used. Its beige in color. Thank you for your help

    • Hello,
      I am sorry, but there seems to be some confusion? I don’t have a design in the Winter 2010 issue of Interweave Knits and I don’t have a copy of that issue, but here is a link to that issue on their website:
