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!)
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!
