This 40% wool, 40% alpaca and 20% silk blend yarn has as lovely a "hand" as it's finer cousin, Moonshine, but offering a quicker knit and bigger gauge.
Recommended at 3- 3.5 sts/inch on a US 9-11 it makes a lovely cowl or hat.
The fair isle hat below is super warm and soft. Although I ended up putting a rolled brim on it, there is plenty of yarn left that if you wanted to knit a self facing for the brim to add another layer of warmth to the forehead and ears, you could! The pattern is sent out when you purchase 2 colors in case you want to knit it.
The crochet hat shown below takes just over 1 skein...there's leftover so if you take some of the "slouch" out of the hat, you could do it with one skein. WE have several cowl patterns at the store for this yarn as well, including Eclipse pictured below.
