Hannah Fettig + Sparrow

Coming next week: Hannah Fettig’s Knitbot Linen, her take on easy summer knitting, and wearing: Six pieces in Quince & Co’s Sparrow.

As we prepare a proper teaser post for you, here’s a pre-tease.

Above, stacked neatly, is Hannah’s collection. Perfect weekend packing, don’t you think? We love the palette, soft and dreamy. Sparrow takes beautifully to dyeing. The colors are rich or soft, and saturated.

The more we all work with Sparrow, the more we appreciate its loveliness and its idiosyncrasies. In Linen, Hannah dedicates a page or so to comments and tips on how best to approach a yarn that’s spun from plant (not animal) fiber.

So get ready, take a look at the colors above, and start mulling.

    Would love a sample card with Sparrow colors! They are so complex that it seems difficult to choose via computer monitor. Or perhaps a blog post with descriptions of each color? I was surprised to find how blue the Birch is (more blue than gray), so I’m reluctant to invest in other colors without being able to see them. For example, one person on Ravelry described Pigeon as being very purple, but on my monitor it looks very steel gray.

    I have loved working with Sparrow–it is the softest linen I’ve ever knitted with!

    Extremely tempting, but I have learned to never purchase yarn without a sample (even just 2 inches) in my hands. Are the Quince-ians intending to make color samples of Sparrow available to their customers?

  17. Can you go around the circle please and tell us the colors? I’m looking for that soft green and the colors look different on my computer in Yarns vs. in this beautiful photograph…….many thanks!

    Hi Karen,

    Moving clockwise and starting at 6:00, that gray/green color is Juniper, then Butternut (yellow),
    Blue Spruce (aqua/blue), Sans (undyed), Fen, a marsh green/brown, Pidgeon (blue/gray), Truffle (mauve), Port (deep purple), Paprika (deep red/orange–love it), Viburnum, light lavender, Little Fern (pale yellow/green), Birch (light gray blue), and Nannyberry, (soft clay red).

    Need anymore help, just let me know.

  19. admin says:

    HI Emma,

    Send me your address and I’ll see what I can do about that 2″.

  20. Kat says:

    I also would really like to get color cards for Sparrow. Different pics I’ve seen of the yarn or finished objects look quite different, so I’m reluctant to order without seeing the colors in person.
