"Blue baby alpaca hat for her baby blues"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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 hats 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

"Soft, but flimsy"

Looks good in photo, and I loved the color, but even though it had the soft feel of alpaca, it was very thin yarn for the price, and also too large for my head. Returned it.

"Beautiful Handmade Hat"

This is my new go to hat. The color is deep and rich and the workmanship is beautiful. Alpaca wool is the best.

"Beautiful hat, frustrated with fit"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This hat is a true work of art, which is what I have come to expect from this artist. Her textile and design skills are amazing. I cherish every item I have from her, and I am always excited when she brings out something new. I am frustrated, though, as to how knitted hats are measured. The numbers given for hat dimensions are meaningless, and they do not help in deciding if a hat will fit. I have three different hats that were presented as having the same measurements: one is a perfect, comfortable fit, just very slightly loose; the second is snugger than I like but wearable; and the third is so small and tight that it gives me headaches!!! I understand that handmade items will vary but this is beyond reasonable! This applies to hats from multiple artists. If I buy something, I would like to know that I will have the pleasure of wearing it. At this point, anytime that i order a hat i feel that it is a toss up as to who will get to wear it: me or my 8 year old neighbor.
