This hood is handknit in a lambswool (25%) acrylic (75%) blend, lined in a thick champagne pink satin.(colors/fiber can be changed as well as measurements if MADE TO ORDER, convo me to begin planning). The pattern has complex all-over braided cables and bobbles. The hood has a twisted rib collar to keep out the chill and wind. The hood is quite roomy, has a gusseted back and twisted 'rope' drawstrings ending in painted metallic pink wooden beads.

Wool is naturally a 'smart' fiber it insulates from the cold but breathes to keep you from sweating. Wool also has antibacterial properties and seldom needs cleaning because dirt is drawn to the center of the fibers. Wool also contains the emollient lanolin. True wool allergies are extremely rare- what most people are sensitive to is the chemicals used to process the fiber- none of the fibers I use have had harsh chemical treatments and are generally buttery soft, not scratchy or irritating. Wool/animal fibers are animal friendly and fully sustainable product.
