Nature's Finest in Hemp and Virgin Wool
#372 Simple Living Hemp VIRGIN Wool Hippie Dread Beret Tam
Medium/large sized rustic hippie tam in a blend of hemp yarn and virgin wool (50% hemp/50%wool). Natural (cream/ aran colored) look for guys and girls. It has been worked in a double-loop stitching closed pattern. All-year-around tam. Temperature balancing natural materials. Bulky weight yarn (thick yarn)
ATTENTION, please read: The virgin wool used in this yarn still has some natural lanolin of the sheep's fleece. I have hand-washed the hat after crocheting, but there is still a tiny bit of "sheepy" or hempy odor in the tam. This wool naturally smells like sheep and hemp opposed to industrial processed wool you would buy at a chain yarn store. After the hand soak the hat came out smelling pretty neutral, but that's my subjective impression as I am aroud this yarn so often when crocheting.
Has been hand-washed in hand-made soap, I didn't use fabric softener, but this may be used for further laundry care. No agitation when washing this hat, please, the hemp and wool have only slightly felted together after my hand-wash. If possible just air out wool items and spot clean.
Measurements: The hat measures 13 inches at the widest point when laying flat.
Head opening is 23 inches unstretched and stretches to 27 inches, cinches smaller with a drawstring.
The hat is 10 inches deep from crown to rim).
Ideal for short to long hair and medium dreads, may be too small for very long dreadlocks though.
Basically this tam is wide-crowned like a beret and not as long as sock-tams.
