Hand knitted hats/beanies WITH Pictures!! on 11/23/2011 19:21:10 MST Print View

These are hand made with quality wool, in a clean, smoke free home.
There are 2 basic styles, the rolled edge and the folded over edge.
The wool I use is either 100% machine washable Merino, better for hiking; 100 Baby Alpaca wool, warmer and softer but hand wash only, and a blend of the two .


These are the rolled Merino, sizes medium/ Large. 28 dollars shipped

These look awesome, Kat!

For the folded edge, is the edge sewn up or can I "unroll" it to cover my nose at night? :) I really like your work.

Thanks.
I will have lots of them at the GGG.
The folded over edge can be pulled down over the ears and neck.
I can also embroider some small initials discreetly in the back, or under the fold, at no extra charge, if you'd like.

great hats on 11/23/2011 22:46:20 MST Print View

Mine arrived today. Fits great and love the color. The alpaca material itched a little too much but the merino is great.

I've bought a lot of cold weather hats in my time. I grew up in COLD country and these are MUCH better made than anything you can buy in a big retail outlet.

Beanies. Answers to your questions. on 11/24/2011 09:33:55 MST Print View

Thanks Kendall :)

@JJ: The Orange and Grey is a Merino hat. The description is above the picture, not below.

@ Matthew : The Merino is not as warm as the Alpaca, at least in the yarns I use. Merino will work better if you hike in it, because the longer hair of the Alpaca can make some people itch when they sweat. The Alpaca is the much softer to the touch, and will keep you warmer in cold weather, at camp etc. Merino is machine washable and keeps a good stretch. Alpaca is a hand wash, but if it loosens up a bit after time, washing it with some warm water and soap will tighten it back a bit, but one has to be careful not to shrink/felt it too much.


Edited my answer to JJ
