Quince & Co Kestrel

We’ve finally received our new stock of Quince & Co Kestrel! Sorry for the lateness, their shipment was late, then it got stuck in customs, then they shipped it, but half of our order got stuck in customs …. our kestrel has been on an international shipping ODYSSEY (oh the stories it could tell)!

If you aren’t already familiar with Kestrel, it’s a BEAUTIFUL, machine washable, organic linen made it Italy. It’s aran to bulky weight, so it knits up quickly and easily on 5mm/US8 to 6.5mm/US10.5 needles. Linen has a remarkable amount of drape and ease, so you can generally go down one to two sizes in a pattern (when I work with Kestrel on a 6.5mm/US10.5 needle I go down TWO sizes).

Spring-Summer Classes with Kestrel

We’ve been carrying Kestrel for about 2 or 3 years now, and we’ve been so impressed with its quality and how well it works-up that we’re using it in a number of our Spring & Summer workshops!
