We are thrilled to offer the Quill hat kit in Stone Wool Cormo, the newest yarn here at Wool & Honey. So new, in fact, that our first order is winging its way here now. These kits are pre-orders and will be shipping (or available for pickup!) the week of September 18th, toward the end of the week.
A note from the designer, Michigan knitter + our friend, Andrea Mowry…
“The original “right side” of Quill shows careful, possibly timid steps, back and forth towards the crown. When I was done, and turned it “wrong side” out to weave in the last end, I noticed that the arrows took on a new depth, charging forward and back in a determined gait.” This reversible, textured hat is my new everyday go to hat. I hope you love it as much as I do!
We are honored to be the newest Stone Wool stockist, a beautiful collection of American grown, spun and dyed wool.
About the yarn…
Whitney Hayward joined with Twig & Horn to develop a mill-spun yarn, a 2-ply worsted seemed the perfect homage to Stone Wool’s handspun origins. They partnered with two ranches—one in Montana one in Wyoming—for Cormo wool, and a Western mill for fiber processing and spinning.
They worked with the mill on a special method of fiber preparation, one that marries woolen and worsted processes. The result is a unique yarn with woolen spun’s airy loft and worsted’s strength. Springy, lofty, and with a substantial hand, Stone Wool Cormo offers crisp stitch definition, with the perfect amount of textured in the knitting. We hope you fall in love.
Each kit comes with 1 skein of Stone Wool Cormo and an easy-to-read pattern.
Please indicate your Ravelry user name in the ‘Notes to Seller’ section at checkout; a PDF of the pattern will be sent to your library. The Quill pattern comes to us by way of Andrea Mowry of Michigan.
