The Winter Interweave Knits featured an article on a new yarn company, Quince & Co. Within
an hour 1/2 hour of reading the article I had place my first order. Easily influenced? Not me! I placed the order on Thursday afternoon. It shipped on Friday and I received it on Monday. Pretty quick service, I'd say.
The fact that their yarn lines are named after birds might have swayed me. The fact that the beautiful colors are inspired by nature might have swayed me also. The cost is very reasonable, especially when you consider that this wool is spun in the U.S. from U.S. sheep. The Lark skeins (sport weight) that I purchased were $5.95 for a 50 g ball/181 yds. I'll be talking about this wool in an upcoming podcast. There are 3 skeins of Snap Pea in my stash now. Actually, not in my stash because I have already started knitting with it.

The package arrived with the wool wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with a "Q" sticker. There was a lovely postcard with a personal "Thank you" written on it.
