This maroon and gray slouchy hat will keep your head warm on the coldest days. It is hand knit with a bulky, up-cycled, mothproofed Icelandic wool. This particular wool comes from a beautiful sweater, obviously hand knit from Lopi yarn, that I found at a second hand shop. Lopi is a very recognizable Icelandic wool and while the patterning and hand knitting in the original sweater were flawless, the sizing was pitiful. Sadly, the sweater would have only fit a gorilla. A very large gorilla. I bought the sweater anyway, took it home, said a mental apology to the original knitter and unraveled it, washed the wool, hung it to dry then reused part of the wool to knit this hat. For more information on Lopi yarn, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lopi
Size: Unstretched, the brim measures 19 inches (48 cm) in circumference and should fit most adult or older teen heads.
