As a local yarn shop owner, I have made the decision not to work with Quince in any capacity. Once our existing inventory is sold, Stars Hollow Yarns will no longer carry Quince & Co. or Twig & Horn products in our shop.

That said, we realize many patterns call for Quince yarns and were inspired by our friends at Making magazine to create a list for those hoping to find alternatives.
