More Linen

Quince & Co. Kestrel as arrived!kestrel This is an Aran weight yarn made of 100% organic linen, in 76 yard skeins with recommended needle size of 9.Quince and Co. "took the same Belgium-grown organic linen that they use in their fingering weight Sparrow and spun it in a ribbon structure. Kestrel knits up quickly at 3 ½ to 4 stitches to the inch. Its flat surface adds a slight texture to simple knit and purl stitches. 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."There are hundreds of pattern suggestions on Ravelry.  Kate's favorite is the Davis pullover designed by Pam Allen.For those of you eager to try working with linen this season but don't have the time needed to work on a larger fingering eight project like a sweater, this yarn is perfect!  It will knit up as quick as a wink.Of course we do also stock the same delicious colors in the fingering weight Sparrow that was used to make Jenny's breathtaking Artesian pictured below.artesian-03So now you have two great linen yarn options from Quince & Co. at My Sister Knits.  We hope that you'll come check them out soon.
