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.

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!
Kestrel is gorgeous
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!
My skein is just as pictured and I can't wait to work it up into something beautiful. wish I had bought two or three more
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.
Vibrant Color Changes
First of all, I love Tenderfoot 80/20. It slides smoothly through your fingers and blocks beautifully. I’ve only used single color in previous projects however this yarn brings pleasant color pops throughout the work.
This yarn is so soft, and it arrived very quickly after I placed the order.
Beautiful colorway. I've cast on and the stitch definition is perfect. Customer service is wonderful.
Kestrel tenderfoot yarn
This is gorgeous yarn and, like all Polka Dot Sheep yarns, is a joy to work with. It was delivered in record time as well.
