Keep the winds of winter away with this soft and silky beret. Perfect for afternoons in the shops and sunny, crisp days. This blend of 80% Alpaca and 20% silk creates a hat that is both soft and smooth made of all natural fibers.

Hand-crocheted by me, I use alpaca in my hats because it is the softest natural fibre available, and is a joy to touch every day. It is warmer than wool, and because it has no lanolin like sheep's wool does, is not itchy on sensitive skin. Alpaca, unlike cotton, will also still keeps you warm in the snow and rain. Fine holes in the crochet pattern makes this hat perfect for milder days too--this is truly an all weather choice.

Blue Brocade began with my desire to create hat brooches for berets just like this. These classic French hats are a universally flattering style for all women, no matter their hairstyle. One can wear it with hair up or down, on the back of the crown or pulled in close around the ears.

This order is for the hat alone. It is designed to co-ordinate with any of the hat brooches in my shop, simply click here to see the selection or to add one to your order: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BlueBrocade?section_id=10574570

The soft lavender yarn is muted and elegantly understated, pairing beautifully with coats and sweaters in blacks, greys and creams. Over time the ribbing will stretch to custom fit your head, between 16-22 inches around. Hand wash in cold and dry flat.
