Quince & co Piper

Loop is the European flagship shop for quince & co yarns. We're so proud to stock their beautiful yarns.

Quince & Co Piper is a pretty little southern bird. Quince & Co have sourced the softest super fine kid mohair that could be found from a Texas herd of angora goats and blended it with super fine Texas merino to make a lighter-than-air, almost lace weight single-ply yarn. Piper has a pretty halo and a subtle sheen, thanks to the long, silky fibers of the mohair. Knit it on a larger needle if you want. It fills in nicely. Great in sweaters, hats, and, of course, shawls.

We have had a very special delivery in Piper in the colour Avocet for a new sweater design by our very own Loopette Brontë Swannick. The pattern is called Aloft  and can be found in the new issue of Pom Pom Quarterly 

Piper and Finch are held together for this pattern but Brontë suggests substituting Isager Silk Mohair in place of the Piper if you would like to try a different colour combination or prefer to use a different yarn.
