Cast on this quick knit with Quince & Co.’s Puffin, a bulky weight all-American wool that shines in this textured pattern.

With over 20 colors in stock, this cowl can be made as a statement piece or an everyday staple.

Noodlehead’s Open Wide Zipper Pouches are a favorite go-to sew. Using less than a half-yard of fabric, they work up beautifully in quilting cottons, Essex Yarn Dyed, and leather.

For all of your project needs, shop our selection of quilting cotton fabrics at $8.95/yard* in-store and online. *whole continuous yards only.
