Hacienda is a modular knitted stole with a lovely drape and texture. The unique construction of Kestrel is a perfect fit for Bristol’s unique and fearless sense of design. All of these elements come together beautifully in this fun to knit, and fun to wear, piece.
The wrap is designed with Quince & Co Kestrel, an extremely versatile, aran weight 100% organic linen (I don’t know if you get more environmentally without hugging a tree). It knits beautifully, easily and fast, it’s machine washable (in a delicate bag), and softens up COMPLETELY after washing. If you want to maintain the crispness in the picture above you’ll need to wash by hand, lay flat to dry, and press (a little spritz of Soak Flatter won’t hurt either). Because of the textile, this wrap is great for cooler summer nights, people who winter in a warmer climate, or for anyone who can’t wear wool and wants something really nice.
