Quince and CO Tern is the latest yarn to make its debut at nido.

Soft and skinny, Tern is a blend of wool and tussah silk. The yarn’s muted palette—think vintage painted photographs—results from the way in which the different fibers absorb dye. The wool portion colors thoroughly, but the silk is barely tinted. It’s good for socks, scarves, mitts, hats, and any sweater that loves a little drape.75% American wool, 25% silk
