Twig & Horn

"It all started when Quince & Co. owner, Pam Allen, was searching for a wool wash with lanolin to clean and refresh an old sweater. Finding no satisfactory options on the market, she partnered with an American natural-soap maker to develop a premium gentle wool soap packed with USP-grade lanolin and other naturally moisturizing and gently cleansing ingredients."twig-soapFrom there this new needlearts company went on to source and create a small collection of great US made products that will enhance any yarn enthusiast's craft.twig-gaugeThis gauge ruler is as cleanly beautiful as it is useful.  It is crafted in Maine from baltic birch plywood for durability.twig-tote-01Their wildly popular Wool Project Tote is "the utility bag for knitters and other needle crafters. Big and sturdy enough for your largest project, and even a grocery run, but not so big that your just-started sock gets lost."twig-tote-02"A utility pocket keeps your markers and a pair of scissors handy, and a needle pocket keeps your straights organized and ready to go. These are made from 85% wool and 15% nylon fabric made in the USA; with a 100% cotton duck lining that is finished in the USA. The totes are finished with American Bison leather handles and are cut and sewn in Maine."Twig & Horn was inspired to provide this generous selection of beautifully made and exclusively US sourced tools because "We are driven by the current American craftsman (and craftswoman!), whether they’re working with 1st or 21st century technology to make their goods. And we’re inspired by the enduring natural beauty and materials found here, as well as by the artistry of the cultures that existed here centuries and millennia ago."We are delighted with Twig & Horn's commitment to beautifully and responsibly created goods with locally sourced materials that ensure a smaller carbon footprint.  We hope that you can visit the shop soon and check out this new line.
