Puffin | Quince & Co.
- HOW IT'S MADE
- PROJECT IDEAS
Puffin lives up to its name - it's squishy, fluffy, and oh so soft. This yarn is the second-chunkiest yarn we carry (after Crazy Sexy Wool), which makes it great for beginners who are just learning to knit or crochet.
It's made from 100% American grown wool, so it's very cozy and very warm. And it's a beautifully soft spun yarn, which gives it a soft halo and a broken-in feel once knitted.

Puffin is made from Territory Wool, which comes from sheep west of the Mississippi in Washington and the Rocky Mountain states. It is completely sourced, processed, spun, dyed, and packaged in the USA. Quince & Co produces all their yarns with environmental impact and sustainability in mind.

Sweaters, sweaters, sweaters! If you knit a sweater with Puffin, we bet it'll become your favourite everyday sweater. If you're new to knitting and haven't yet graduated to knitting in-the-round, this yarn would be a great choice for learning some new techniques. It would also be great for quick winter accessories like hats and mitts, since it's so fast to knit up.
