Love.Yarn.Shop. and Quince & Co.

Partnering with Quince & Co. to carry their yarns has been one of my goals since opening LYS.   I had already fallen in love with the simple, wearable designs of Pam Allen, so when she founded Quince & Co with values I shared—maintaining a low carbon footprint by sourcing wool and spinning it locally, encouraging quality and sustainability over quantity and disposability—I knew I wanted their yarns in my shop.  I was able to carry their linen at first, and after three years, I am now able to carry their other yarns.  I have started out with Lark, Owl, and Puffin.  Lark is 100% wool, worsted weight, with good definition…perfect for a piece which is rich in stitch texture.  Owl is 50% alpaca and 50% wool, and also worsted weight.  The colors have an added depth from being dyed over one of the darker naturals.  Puffin is a single-ply bulky; warm and squishy, it makes great winter garments and accessories.  At the Yarn Tasting on February 8th from 5-7, we’ll be knitting with Puffin, then on Saturday at 10:30, I’ll be teaching a class on a simple brioche cowl using Puffin.  Customers will receive a 20% discount on Puffin and the class on Friday night.  Come in the shop to feel and admire these fabulous yarns.

Italian Linen from Quince & Co–Oh, Rococo!

The rich palette from Quince & Co, out of Biddeford, Maine, Sparrow, is reminiscent of Italian Rococo art: the warm, saturated colors have names like Port, Venice, Butternut, and Eleuthera.  If you are looking for a finger weight fiber for a summer garment, this may be it.  LYS will be having a trunk show, with garments and patterns, starting the 8th of May, but yarn and patterns are in the shop now for you to check out.
