Description

Womens Knitted Beanie/Tam in Darkest Plum Purple Alpaca Wool. Large 24"

* Misti Alpaca yarn, 4-ply
* 100% baby alpaca wool from Peru
* Opening is 18" and stretches to 24"
* Height is 10"

Hand knitted in simple stockingstich and mock cable with a 1-1/2" rib-knit brim. Alpaca is one of the warmest of yarms, although this is a loosely knitted and you could feel a breeze through it. Feels like it's not even there.

It's a great go-to hat to grab and go, stuff in a pocket and wear with almost anything since it's almost black.

Slip on for a variety of styles from slouchy to full coverage. Wear like a slouchy beanie, or as a regular beanie with the brim rolled up (image 2). Roll the brim under and it looks like a tam (image 3). It's topped with a 1-1/2" I-cord.

Handwash, block flat, and air dry.

One size and fits--depending on stretch--up to about 24", large.

Each item is carefully wrapped in tissue paper, then inside a plastic sleeve tied with ribbon, then inside a sturdy box surrounded with additional clear packing tape that keeps moisture and travel grime from entering the box.

Gift wrap available.

FAQs

Measure circumference & dome. Identify shape.
1) Use a measuring tape or ribbon that DOES NOT STRETCH (not a string) around the widest part across mid-forehead and just above the ears--three times and take an average--to the last 1/8" or 0.1 cm.

2) Measure the dome from mid-forehead over the top to that divot just below the skull at the nape. Average is 13" for women, 14" for men.

3) Determine head's shape: oval (average), round or elongated-oval. Bow and ask a friend.

For hard to fit heads, the extra attention to detail makes a big difference in fit. Why? because an average-shape hat feels tight on the sides of round heads or doesn't rest properly on tall/flat domes.
Yes. If a hat can be sewn, I will make it after it's been ordered. Pick any hat and request any modifications desired in the comments section of the order process. Or describe something completely new so a private listing can be posted for you that itemizes its description, but without a photo of the completed hat, of course.

Do I accept returns of a custom order? Sort of, because each hat will fit someone somewhere in the future. Or I'll make alterations (see how to measure).
Hats should be spot clean unless otherwise directed. First, use a sticky tape roller to remove dust and debris. Allow whatever is wet to dry and then scrape it off with a fingernail or toothpick. If the spot is not removed after that, then using a clean white paper towel dab with water and a smidgen of white vinegar from above while having a clean dry white paper towel below until there is no color. Use lots of paper towels.

To re-shape, if needed, stuff the hat with socks, or stretch over a salad bowl or clean paint can that's close to your head size. Worst case, use steam carefully and the fabric will settle into that shape. Most hats can be enlarged with a hat stretcher. It's a matter of moisture, temperature and time (see Anneal).
Humans evolved with poor color memory. That's why it's difficult to describe burgundy when you really mean maroon. Or describe tan as off-white. Pantone is a company that helps mitigate that discrepany by using a numbering system to describe colors, shades and saturation.

When choosing a color such as grey (gray to some), your concept of steel gray could be my medium gray. To avoid guessing, just Google 'Pantone gray' and you will see many results for shades of gray. Pick a Pantone number for the one you prefer and include that in your order comments. That way, despite variations in monitor color rendition, I will be able to deliver a color that comes closer to the one you desire.
Always provide a current measurement in the order comments.

Priority Shipping is available; however USPS First Class shipping is more economical. In my experience, First Class items arrive in a similar timeframe as Priority Shipping about 80% of the time. If you absolutely need an item to arrive sooner, choose Priority. But if you can accept an 80% chance it will arrive in a similar timeframe, choose First Class and save about half the cost.

Either way, shipment tracking is always included.
