This hat is hand knit with gorgeous shades of bronze and maroon. It reminds me of a vineyard in autumn (sherry and burgundy?). The color is called Harvest and the yarn is composed of two colors twined together, changing at intervals to form the knitted stripes. The close up photo shows the colors best.
The yarn is thicker than average, all wool, and quite soft and squishy. These hats just might be my warmest. (Phoenix is not the best place to test winter hats.) They are definitely warmer than synthetics because they are all wool and friendly to our planet. The 2 x 2 ribbing also makes for a thicker fabric and of course you’ll wear it doubled over your ears.
Did I mention that these are VERY stretchy hats and will fit even the largest heads? Yes, they will!
Check out the other hats and accessories in my gallery. I even have some hats in this yarn in different colors.
