Wintry lines #3
The movement of the knitting takes simple indigo lines for a spin, the same way the spinning of the galaxy swirls the star dust..
Dyed in a medium blue tone with my studio-grown Japanese indigo, alternating with varying width tie resist lines of natural white fiber. The front and back of the hat is shown in the photos.
Exterior and interior fiber is 50% superfine local Romeldale wool / 50% local fine grade alpaca.
Unisex fit is slouchy. The height of the hat when flat is 10". Stretchy to fit most heads.
USPS Priority Shipping included in price
Your new knit requires very little care except to be worn and loved. The most important thing is not to put it in the washing machine! If your knit gets dirty or stretched, handwashing will restore it. To wash, fill a basin with warm water and add about a teaspoon of gentle dishwashing liquid, castile soap, or a fiber wash product such as Unicorn Wash or Eucalan. Don’t use Woolite. Put your knit piece in the basin and let it soak for 30 minutes without agitating it. Remove and refill the basin with fresh water. Put the knit back in the basin and let soak for another 10 minutes. Do 2 more rinses in fresh water. Gently squeeze dry and/or roll in a towel and dry flat.
You can store your knit in the cloth bag it came in. If wool moths are a problem in your house, consider storing in a cedar chest.
If you aren’t happy with your purchase, Sky Like Snow will accept returns of knits in pristine condition within 30 days of sale. Return postage, if applicable, is the responsibility of the buyer. Please send all questions and requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
May your head and heart be warm!
