Unisex style for any teen or adult who needs a really, really, warm hat. Warm enough to survive even winters in Winnipeg, Canada… think minus 30-40 degrees Celsius for weeks and months on end.. and that is without the wind chill. Really.
I had a hat much like this one years ago and decided to re-create it. It is made in one piece from inner crown to outer crown, then the beginning and ends are stitched together.
The upper part of your head is snug under a double layer of wool, while the head-band portion that covers your ears is double, double thick, with 4 layers for warmth and wind resistance, but it’s not bulky.
Cascade 200's Pure Peruvian highland wool is so soft, warm and comes in a wonderful range of colours making it a natural choice for a hat such as this. Of course, any suitable Aran or Worsted yarn that works to gauge could be used. Consider natural fibres like alpaca, mohair, camel, angora and/or qiviut either alone or blended with sheep's wool. Add a strand of mohair to the Cascade 220 for extra warmth and a bit of halo. Just think of the possibilities, and how warm you will be!
Shown in Size M/L to fit head circumference 22 inches, in Navy; it took 175g or 350 m.

I do my best to accurately and describe the items I have for sale.
The photographs are true to the best of digital photography’s ability! Colours are true to my eye and on my computer screen, but we all know that each monitor’s representation can vary.
In the case of pottery, there are many complexities in colour and texture that quite simply, are best appreciated in person. Each one is a unique piece of art!
Details of each item including dimensions, weight, composition, etc. accompany each listing.
Pieces of pottery and hand made textiles come with a hand written card with relevant details about the piece including composition, care, catalogue number ( if applicable), and a personal message.
* A note about pottery and ceramics. It is the nature of clay that it is breakable! Please handle your pieces with care to avoid chipping or breakage. No guarantees can be given in terms of longevity. For best results, hand wash pieces with mild dish detergent and hand dry. Although they are dishwasher safe, it is not reccommended. Likewise, use in a microwave oven is not advisable.
Some crazing of the glaze is normal and to be expected. This will not affect the usefulness of your pottery.
