kestrel color comparisons

Apr 14, 2016 :: by Leila Raabe

Just out today are three new shades for Kestrel, our heavy-worsted organic linen ribbon yarn—dark Ash, bright Antler, and beach-glass-like Wave.

For a little visual context, here they are sitting pretty next to some of our other Kestrel colors. Our blues/greens, for instance:

left to right: Porpoise, new color Wave, Aegean, and Urchin

And Kestrel's deeper, romantic side:

left to right: Minos, Byzantium, and new color Ash

Our neutrals will always be a great choice:

left to right: new color Antler, Sans, Turtle

And a few pattern ideas for these new Kestrel beauties:

Yarrow by Pam Allen would look stunning in blue-green Wave...

Ash would create the most lovely, ironwork-like lace in Adelaide by Cecily Glowik MacDonald, from Kestrel 2016!

Make a classic white tank in Antler with Pam Allen's Togue Pond.


We hope you enjoy our new colors!
