Kestrel is a new take on a simple linen yarn. This is the same Belgium-grown organic linen Quince used in their little Sparrow yarn but this time, spun 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 and the fabric it creates has incredible drape. Like all things linen, Kestrel only gets better as you wash and wear it.
