The perfect combination of style, warmth and supporting local!
This gorgeous unisex hat is knit from a very special sheep fleece. Ginger was a sheep owned by a friend of mine in Ontario. I cleaned and spun her fleece, knitting it into a sweater for my husband. This is the last of that yarn!
Handknit here on the farm from my own handspun wool yarn, you can be sure this will keep your head and ears warm. The yarn is a natural greyish, fawn and brown. being wool, it is a little rougher, but will stand up to wear and tear. The coloration difference is due to the natural coloring and of the animals fleece. I call it an ear flapper as it's shorter and just flaps the ears at the top. It would come down over the ears of a smaller head or a childs size.
We classify this hat as teen, one size. Please refer to the measurements to be assured of a proper and comfortable fit. If this topper doesn't work, check out the remainder of our listings.
This hat would pair lovely with one of our beautiful scarves or thrum mitts if you're looking for something to pair it with.

Our yarn is produced from our own animals here on the farm. We love them, feed them and care for them year round. Our animals are shorn once a year in the spring and the fibre is skirted and graded. We then send this fibre to a few maritime mills and wait for our fibre to be transformed into stunning yarns. Once we recieve this back, we hand paint or dye each skein and add it to our stock in the shop or produce more beautiful products. It's certainly a labour of love and we very much appreciate your support of our ethical and eco friendly farm!
