Quince and Co


Chickadee is Quince and Co's sport weight yarn. The soft, springy nature of this yarn makes it perfect for a range of projects, and lovely to wear and work with. Grown, spun and dyed in the USA, this yarn works well for colour work, patterns with texture or just a plain knit.

Available in a rainbow of colours there's something to suit everyone. 

The Calico and Ivy team love Chickadee for the Norwegian Fir Cardigan by OGE knits.
