Painted headband #4 – Rainbow flames
This reversible headband is generously sized at 4.5" wide. It will keep your ears cozy without flattening out your gorgeous hair, or overheating the top of your head. Fun fact: the geometrical shape is a flattened torus — a seamlessly connected tubular tube. (It takes a lot of time to hand stitch the seamless graft!)
Hand painted in the yarn with dye extracts made from locally foraged Hydnellum mushrooms, goldenrod, wild madder root, lichens and garden grown coreopsis. Reverses to a wild madder dyed red and weathered stripe with a dark grey natural fiber border.
Unisex size stretches to fit most heads. Interior and exterior fiber is 50% superfine local Romeldale wool / 50% local fine grade alpaca.
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!
