Kestrel is a new take on a simple linen yarn. Quince & Co. took the same Belgium-grown organic linen that they use in their little Sparrow and spun it this time 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. But we agree with Quince that 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.
