I bought three hats-not cheap, but worth it. Superbly soft and dense,perfect natural colours. I guess for a beanie the rim/fold over could be a smidge longer, but maybe as the colours are individual you ran out of wool? Love them😊

About

My story is long and eclectic, but fiber art is one recurring theme.

Fiber art is one of several recurring themes in my life. My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was a small boy, I learned to spin a few years ago when I was raising alpacas, and somewhere along the way, I learned how to knit. Today, I focus on spinning alpaca and alpaca-based yarn blends, and knitting hats.

Additional policies and FAQs
Volume Discounts:
I do not offer volume discounts. I spin one strand at a time. I knit one item at a time. There is no volume discount in my hand-work process. Therefore, I do not offer a volume discount on my handmade items. I do, however, offer a break on shipping for multiple items.

Washing Instructions:
My hats are made by hand and they need to be washed by hand as well. If you put your handspun, hand knit alapca garment in a washing machine, you are likely to end up with a lump of felt. Wringing, rubbing, and scrubbing wet alpaca fiber causes it to felt. Please hand wash, gently and DO NOT WRING. Dry flat or on a drying rack. The SPIN ONLY cycle of most washing machines is safe for removing extra moisture prior to rack drying, but RINSE AND SPIN makes felt.
