Willet - from Quince & Co.

Willet is Quince & Co.'s light, summery bird, sourced from high-quality, responsibly-grown Cleaner Cotton™. (Learn more about Cleaner Cotton.) The fiber's long staple length yields a deliciously soft yarn with a hint of pretty sheen. In Willet's neat little stitches, we see 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, colorgrown heathers: Almond, Cashew, Pistachio, and Lentil. Rarer than white cotton varieties, colorgrown cotton contains natural green, brown, and red pigments. Almond and Cashew are made from white Cleaner Cotton™ and USA-grown brown colorgrown cotton. Pistachio and Lentil are made from white and colorgrown green Cleaner Cotton™.

Weight: Sport

Put up: 50g hank. Hanks must be wound prior to knitting with them. However, plant fibers do not ship well once wound into a ball - the ball tends to fall apart and tangle en route. As such, we strongly recommend waiting to wind this yarn at home just before you work with it. If you want to risk it, though, you can add yarn winding to your order here.
Care: For the longest life for your handknit item, hand wash then lay flat to dry.
