100% Donegal Tweed wool yarn from Ireland is used in this hand knit classic hat. It is a neutral oatmeal color with flecks (called neps) of black, brown and beige.
When it is winter, you want a hat that will keep you warm even if it gets wet from sleet, snow or a little rain. That is why smart knitters use wool for all their winter clothing. It is also eco-friendly!
This hat is also very warm because it is knit in a 2 x 2 ribbed pattern which makes it extra thick. On top of that the hat is a full 12 inches deep so there is plenty to turn up and cover your ears with a double layer. And no matter what size your head, this hat will fit because ribbing is so stretchy.
If you want this hat in another color, just let me know and I can make one just for you. I also have this hat available in medium brown, dark brown and denim blue Irish tweeds as well as in many different solid colors of wool. Just click on the shop link above.
