After staring at the screen again and again for weeks, I finally bought some yarn from Quince and Co.
The package arrived today. LOVE!
For a while I'd come to the realization that with sweaters, I generally preferred solid color over hand-dyed yarn (though not always, but I found myself feeling more disappointed when tones were too varigated in a sweater.) I was also drawn towards slightly muted colors over highly saturated palette. The yarns that came in the package answered all my wants and needs.
I even bought a color card. Based on the colors I saw on its website, I had a feeling I'd want more in the future.
This time I did not order sweater quantity for any of the colors. However, I can easily see myself wanting a sweater in each color! Not to mention all the fun colorwork I can do with the range of colors. I'm already dreaming a dress in Sparrow (linen) that according to the company website, a new shipment is due any time now.
These yarns are soft but not like cashmere/merino soft. I suspect they will pill less and add a bit more structure to garments if knitted at a good gauge.
