Kestrel is a new take on a simple linen yarn. Quince took the same Belgium-grown organic linen used in their little Sparrow and spun it this time in a ribbon structure.
Kestrel knits up quickly at 3.5 to 4 stitches to the inch. Its flat surface adds a slight texture to simple knit and purl stitches. But we think the best thing about it is its incredible drape. Like all things linen, woven or knitted, Kestrel only gets better as you wash and wear it.
Hanks must be wound prior to knitting with them. However, plant fibers do not ship well once wound into a ball - the ball tends to fall apart and tangle en route. As such, we strongly recommend waiting to wind this yarn at home just before you work with it. If you want to risk it, though, you can add yarn winding to your order here. Just know we will worry and chew our fingernails.
