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. 

Pam recruited fellow designer and yarnophile Carrie Bostick Hoge and, together with inventive and resourceful folks at spinning mills around the northeast, they created a line of classic, beautiful yarns from wool sourced and spun in the US. With those yarns they designed a line of modern knitting patterns for sweaters and accessories lovely in their simplicity, which echoed the “thoughtful essentials” nature of the yarn.

Made in the USA.

A note about Whimbrel dyed cotton: Some colors may show dye runoff during blocking or washing, especially with highly saturated colors; this is normal. Machine wash cold with like colors only. For best results, hand wash recommended, lay flat to dry.
