Kestrel. Members of the falcon family, the American Kestrel is an impressive hunter. This colorway is our nod to this majestic bird.  Pan-dyed and speckled, this colorway is sure to please.

This hand-dyed color is available on all our yarn bases, click here to learn more. Shop updates are uploaded weekly, so if we are out of your color choice, check back soon.

We have taken great effort to ensure that our photos are as true to color as possible.  However, due to the hand-dyed process and differences in yarn bases, variations in color and patterning may occur.  Your individual monitor settings can also cause the appearance of the color on the screen to differ from our actual photograph.

For best results, we recommend alternating skeins as you work. Purchase adequate amounts to complete your project.

    I cannot wait to start my favorite poncho project in this yarn. I simply adore this color and the drape of the yarn is going to make this project sing in these glorious colors!!

    Kestrel worsted weight

    Note from PDS: Customer was contacted and issues were addressed and resolved. - PDS Team I love this yarn. Here are my issues. I asked to please wind the yarn into a ball but that did not happen. This is not the first time this has occurred. In addition, I sent follow up email to my order explaining that I had forgotten to apply the “winter” code for a $3 coupon before I submitted my order and asked if it could please be applied on your end. I did not receive a reply to my email or the discount. Very disappointing since I think I am a loyal customer.

    Colors are so beautiful!

    I ordered 3 skeins Ski Town Sport to use for a vest pattern and I'm glad I did. It's perfect for jeans this winter using with Juniper Moon Lace (doubled). Soft and a dream to work with! I love PDS yarns always can find a pattern to work with and it's not itchy so I'm able to wear with no problems. Delivery fast and free makes it even better to start a project when pattern is fresh to go!! Thank you for an excellent product!

    I knit up a pair of men’s socks in this colorway and it was stunning. I love the twist and the feel of the yarn. Definitely will be a repeat customer!

    Beautiful yarn

    I have not yet knitted with this yarn but the colors are exactly what I wanted. Yarn is so soft and I know it will knit up beautifully.
