Quince & Co Fountaingrove Tank Project
The Fountaingrove tank is the perfect cast-on to get you ready for all the warmth and sunshine that the season brings. Fountaingrove features beautiful details you can achieve best with unique Quince & Co Kestrel yarn: a lovely lace panel with gorgeous stitch definition, topped off with a delicate v-neck, and unparalleled drape and sheen.
Quince & Co Kestrel is a new take on a simple linen yarn. Quince and Co. took the same Belgium-grown organic linen that they use in their little Sparrow and spun it this time in a ribbon structure (actually its a 'chainette' - a small knitted tube). Its flat surface adds a slight texture to simple knit and purl stitches. But we think 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.
