a soar of kestrels
March 24, 2016
Our Kestrel 2016 collection is here! The Quince design team is on a roll this season and with today's release, we have four gorgeous new garments by Cecily Glowik MacDonald, Bristol Ivy, Melissa LaBarre, and Quince's own in-house talent, Dawn Catanzaro. The garments they've produced for this collection all feature Kestrel, our worsted weight, linen ribbon yarn.
Let's meet the Kestrel 2016 beauties:
