Zero Waste #2
A hat of many stripes, knit from ends of yarn remaining from 2017 dye batches. In making these, I like to explore new color combinations that usually don't arise in my more formal work. Reflecting on the process, I find myself considering how diversity and unlikely partnerships, both amongst humans and in the natural world, build the most beautiful and resilient communities.
This hat is dyed with Hydnellum mushrooms, lichen, coreopsis, St.-John's-Wort, wild madder root, and bracken fern, with alternating stripes of undyed brown yarn. The peaked shape has some space at the very tippy top and plenty of cozy warmth around your ears.
Fiber: New England sourced and spun 50% alpaca/50% superfine wool
Unisex one size
Care: Sky Like Snow hats should be hand washed by gently soaking in lukewarm water with a small amount of mild liquid dish soap or delicate fiber wash such as Eucalan or Unicorn. Rinse several times, dry flat, and iron gently on wool setting to remove any creases.
