Quince & Co. was launched in 2010 by much-loved designer Pam Allen in partnership with an historic mill in Maine. Before starting Quince & Co., Pam found that the traditional way that yarn companies produce new yarns was unsatisfying and ultimately did not yield great products. She wanted to work with mills to design yarns from the ground up.
Pam recruited fellow designer and yarnophile Carrie Bostick Hoge and, together with inventive and resourceful folks at spinning mills around the northeast of the US, 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.
Since then, Quince has grown its offerings well beyond the core wool yarns and a few patterns, while maintaining the dedication to quality, history, and the modern, clean aesthetic that started it all. We're thrilled to be stockists of their stunning range of linen, wool, wool/mohair and wool/alpaca yarns.
