This classic hat is hand knit of medium weight, 100% Donegal Tweed Homespun virgin wool from Ireland. This is the real deal, NOT one of those skimpy, acrylic, machine made things. 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.
This hat is also 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, 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 rich dark brown with flecks (called neps) of cream. As you can see in the photos, the yarn varies in thickness which gives it a homespun or rustic look. The color is also much richer than in the photos.
If you want something different, I have this hat in many other yarns and tweed colors in my gallery.
