Kestrel is the same Belgium-grown organic linen used in Sparrow but spun in a ribbon structured aran weight yarn. 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. One of the best things about Kestrel is its incredible drape. Like all things linen, Kestrel only gets better the more it is washed and worn.
