Big sister to Quince & Co's Willet, the worsted weight Whimbrel is sourced from the same high-quality, responsibly grown organic cotton. The fiber's long staple length yields a deliciously soft yarn with a hint of pretty sheen. Whrimbel is a versatile and practical 3-ply cotton yarn, destined to become a true workhorse, suitable for garments, shawls, and accessories for all seasons.

Originally developed using Cleaner Cotton™, grown in California, Quince & Co are now spinning Whimbrel using GOTS-certified 100% organic cotton fibre from the Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Collective. As they transition their fiber source for this delightful yarn, you may receive Whimbrel made with either organic cotton or with Cleaner Cotton™; your skeins will be labeled accordingly.

All-natural, colourgrown heathers: Almond, Cashew. Rarer than white cotton varieties, colourgrown cotton contains natural green, brown, and red pigments. Almond and Cashew are made from white Cleaner Cotton™ and USA-grown brown colourgrown cotton.

A note about the dyed cotton: Some colors may show dye runoff during blocking or washing, especially with highly saturated colors; this is normal. Machine wash cold with like colors only. For best results, hand wash recommended, lay flat to dry.
