Striped Wool Hat - 2.1 oz

  • Sale
  • Regular price $30.00


This offer is for a neat little hat, adult size. The hat is from my 3 ply handspun, similar to the self striping handspun yarn I have available for sale. The hat weighs 2.1 oz, so you have a reference if you would like to know how much yarn you would need for this basic item. The wool came from a variety of sheep on our farm. I raised the sheep, wash, card, spin and knit the wool for this nice brimless hat all here on our farm. I include with the hat a photo of some of the ewes from my flock for you to enjoy. This hat is nice and soft, has not been commercially processed, so the wool is still naturally soft. The wool was processed in my home, not by a commercial mill, so it still has natural softening agents in the wool. Other than shearing, I am responsible for all other aspects of prepping the fiber into yarn. I wash the wool with regular laundry soap. Once the wool dries, I flick card the locks, which thoroughly removes dirt and debris. Flick carding also removes dry tips, which prevents noils and pills. After I've flicked the locks, I spin them up. This hat was knit in the round, so it has no seams, its perfectly smooth all the way around. I hope you enjoy this hat.
