Hand knit of medium weight, 100% Donegal Tweed Homespun virgin wool from Ireland. This is the real deal. Everyone loves this classic hat, 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.
This hat is also very warm because it is knit in a 2 x 2 ribbed pattern which makes it extra thick. Just under 4 ounces of wool was used, and it feels like it. There is a resilience and bounce to the fiber when you squeeze it that you get only with pure wool.
On top of all that, I knit for a full ten inches before starting the decreases at the top, so there is plenty to turn up and cover your ears with a double layer of thickness. And no matter what size your head, this hat will fit because ribbing is so stretchy.
The color is a dark denim blue with flecks (called neps) of red, white and black. I also have this hat in cream, medium brown and dark brown tweeds as well as other solid colors. Ask if you don't see what you want.
