Owl and Owl Tweet yarn by Quince and Co.



Owl and Owl Tweet yarn by Quince and Co.

Owl + Owl Tweet

We’ve blended American wool with alpaca for Owl, a pliant two-ply, woolen spun light worsted weight yarn. We kept the same sizing and spin for Owl Tweet, but added wool with shorter fibers for a nubby, tweedy effect. Why woolen spun? Because alpaca is a hollow fiber and the best way to preserve its loft and buoyancy is to keep a lot of air in its structure. Squishy and plump, Owl knits up between 4 ½ to 5 stitches per inch, the perfect weight for just about everything. Because it blooms after washing, you can work Owl on US 8 and 9 needles [5 and 5.5mm]. The round plies bloom to fill in your stitches and create a relaxed and drapey fabric with lots of pretty halo.
