Kestrel-Quince & Co-gather here


Kestrel is a new take on a simple linen yarn. It takes the same Belgium-grown organic linen used in Sparrow and spins it in a ribbon structure. Kestrel knits up quickly at 3½ to 4 stitches to the inch. Its flat surface adds a slight texture to simple knit and purl stitches. One of the best things about it is its incredible drape. Like all things linen, woven or knitted, Kestrel only gets better as you wash and wear it.
