Spiced Tree-Bark Hat, Handspun Lambswool & Silk

60.00

This one-off hat is so unusual in colour and texture, I can only describe it as 'spiced tree bark.' The yarn was home-spun by an Ulster spinner, from a mixture of local lambswool (very local - the sheep live next door to her!) and organic silk.

The lambswool part of the yarn is hand-dyed a rich chocolate brown; the silk a fiery amber. Their combination makes for a striking, organic and highly tactile look, which I have attempted to accentuate with an all-over modified 'honeycomb' cable motif. 

I knitted this hat as a unisex beanie, intended as a size Large. However it can also be worn by smaller-headed folk for a slouchy look, as shown in the last photo.

Spinning yarn by hand is a delicate, skillful and time-consuming task. And what a privilege it is as a knitter to work with the fruits of this labour! 

The Spiced Tree-Bark hat is a truly special and unique piece, hand-knitted, hand-spun, and hand-dyed.
