Hat #2 Brushed alpaca & merino wool (The Ribbed beanie)


THE YARN

The hat is made with one strand of a alpaca yarn and one strand of fluffy yarn made with Baby Alpaca (43%), Merino Wool (43%) and Polyamide (14%). The yarns are made in Peru.

Baby alpaca - which is not from baby alpacas but from a softer part of the animal - is very soft and isn't scratchy like alpaca.

The brushed baby alpaca, merino yarn makes the hat lighter than the hats I usually make. If you cannot wear mohair, I find that garments made with brushed yarns are a good alternative.

Alpaca is warmer in comparison to other fibers so even if the hat is lighter it is still warm, but still not the warmest in the shop, thick and heavy alpaca would be warmer for example.

HOW IT'S MADE

The hat is hand knitted by me on circular needles in my knitting studio in Montreal.

It is made of a 1/1 ribbing cuff from top to bottom, which gives it elasticity, with a large brim. The cast on (the first row of the hat) is stretchy so the hat won't be tight halfway on your head.

Care instructions

WASHING
1 - Fill a container with cold or lukewarm water (30 celcius)
2 - Add delicate soap
3- Put the hat inside out in the soapy water, leave in water for about 15 minutes.
2 - Remove excess water without wringing. Roll in a towel and press to remove water.
3- Lay flat to dry on a towel in the shape you want it to be (blocking).
4- If a hat is stretched out you can also put it in the dryer inside out two minutes at a time, some yarns barely shrink and some shrink super fast!

Care instructions

PILLING
1 - If there are big pieces of pill pull gently and cut them with a scissor, carefully.
2 - Then use a lint remover (ex. Gleener) I use the bigger softer part since the stitches are usually big on my hats. Or the small soft part, no the one with the little metal indentation.
3 - Any rubbing against other fabrics creates more pilling, be it a sofa, a coat etc.

STORING
1 - When storing for summer (I don't do it myself but if you want to do everything right) Wash and dry, and store it in a breathable fabric bag (cotton or linen) with a lavender pouch or cedar ball.

This guide may be intimidating, remember a hat doesn't need to be wash very often and if you do just one or two of those things your hat will look better!
