Crochet Alpaca Wool Hats
I ordered this hat for a niece and another in a different color for her sister. I was absolutely blown away by the quality of the hat as well as the fantastic packaging it came in. I carefully unwrapped it to inspect the hat, and then wrapped it right back up in the packaging it came in. I will gift them as is to the girls. Everything about the hat and the packaging screams heirloom quality. I plan to send the information about the artisan to them as well. I am so impressed with the entire experience. I hope the girls will use these hats well into the future. Thank you for a beautiful product Idelsa!!!
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"
