Little sister to Whimbrel, Willet is Quince & Co's light, summery bird, sourced from high-quality, responsibly grown Cleaner Cotton™. The fiber's long staple length yields a deliciously soft yarn with a hint of pretty sheen. At 6 sts / inch, it works both as a sport and DK weight. In Willet's neat little stitches, there's potential for sweet baby things, cool tanks and tees, pillow covers and summer throws, shawls, and more. Try it in a pretty lace pattern or a well-defined knit/purl texture.
All-natural, colourgrown heathers: Almond, Cashew. Rarer than white cotton varieties, colourgrown cotton contains natural green, brown, and red pigments. Almond and Cashew are made from white Cleaner Cotton™ and USA-grown brown colourgrown cotton.
A note about Quince's dyed cotton: Some colours may show dye runoff during blocking or washing, especially with highly saturated colours; this is normal. Machine wash cold with like colours only. For best results, hand wash recommended, lay flat to dry.
