This all wool hat is hand knit with many shades of blue from very light to very dark. Woven through some of the blues are threads of golden yellow. All the yarns in this series from Italy have names from nature and this one is the very fitting Ocean Deep.
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. 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!
If this is not the perfect hat, there are many more hats and accessories in my gallery. Please take a look.
