Kestrel - from Quince & Co.
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 Kestrel does not wind well on our ball winder and also does not ship well once wound. As a result, it is not eligible for our yarn winding service.
