Papuan Quince & Company Owl
50% American wool,
120 yds–50 g
Quince & Co. has blended American wool with alpaca for Owl, a pliant two-ply, woolen-spun light worsted weight yarn. 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.
Owl comes in a range of natural shades, from deep and dark to misty light. The natural blends are overdyed for muted, heathery shades ranging from airy pastels to deep, rich jewel colors.
