Quince and Co has spun beautiful, 100% organic linen into a stunning, worsted weight yarn. The same glossy fibre found in Quince and Co Sparrow yarn is made into a thicker gauge yarn through an innovative chainette construction that is then flattened to a ribbon like texture. The result is one wonderful yarn that makes really interesting garments that knit up fast but with all the glorious properties of a traditional linen yarn. Kestrel has wonderful drape and a lovely sheen and of course like all plant fibres it breaths, so it is suitable for spring and summer wear. Like all linens Kestrel gets softer and silkier the more it is worn and washed.
All Quince and Co yarns have wonderful pattern support. For knit pattern inspiration check out the Quince and Co Kestrel pattern index HERE.
Kestrel is made from 100% linen fibre from Belgium that is milled in Italy. Quince and Co takes care when creating their products. The fibre for Kestrel was grown organically under healthy conditions for the plants and the community that harvests them.
