Quince & Co. Tern


In little Tern, we’ve blended wool and silk for a smooth, defined fingering yarn. We love how the silk fibers lend drape and a slight sheen to knitted fabric. And we especially appreciate the faded colorways which result from the different ways that silk and wool absorb dye.

Use Tern in socks; its silk component has great tensile strength and the wool therein contributes elasticity and warmth. Use the yarn in open, swingy cardigans; you won’t believe the drape. Use it for mitts and hats and anything you want next to the skin. Tern is great year round; it’s warm and pretty in winter, but light and flowing worked into a summer cardi.
