I bought this as a gift for my wife. She requested an alpaca hat - in blue - to match a blue coat she had. I doubted if one was available, but went looking. I needed dimension specs, as she needs something fairly large. Does she like it?: "I love my beautiful new hat! The denim color is rich, and the baby alpaca fibers are so soft -- those who find other wool itchy enjoy relief with alpaca. The hat's design adds to its beauty, with panels of one stitch alternating with bands of another stitch -- this helps create comfortable grip that keeps the masterful stitching aligned when the hat is worn. Also, the hat has no seam, which adds to the comfort and appearance. I love the little floral finish, too, and appreciate that the larger size is available (for those of us outside the "one size fits all" zone). This hat evokes warmth: warm clothing in cold weather, warm regard for the artist, and warm feelings for the giver, who searched until he found the perfect hat. Sincerely, Susan"
I own 25 knit caps...this is one of the warmest I own...tried to buy the white/charcoal but it’s not available..I love it and I love the yarn....
"For my projects, I have the wonderful support of my mother, Julia Maria, who is 60 years old and is a true artist. She has so much creativity and good taste in creating new designs."
