New Kestrel colours from Quince & Co.

new_Kestrel_spring15

We blogged the arrival of Quince & Co’s original nine Kestrel colourways back in March but five more colours have been added this season and we now have them available both in-store and online.

Kestrel is a new take on Quince’s simple Sparrow yarn – the same Belgium-grown organic linen but spun this time in a ribbon structure.  The yarn’s flat surface adds a slight texture to knit and purl stitches and the finished fabric has incredible drape.  And at at 3½ to 4 stitches to the inch, Kestrel knits up quickly for satisfying projects that will surely be finished before summer is.

Have a look at our previous post for project ideas or browse Kestrel patterns on Ravelry for inspiration.

Lisa just finished Davis by Pam Allen with this yarn and it’s great – photos coming soon!
