This slouchy tam in three sizes (S/M/L) takes advantage of the combined assets in a luxury yarn blend—fine, bouncy wool provides body, warmth, and shape, while a silky fiber contributes lovely drape and sheen, with next-to-the-skin softness. The asymmetrical garter stitch brim can be folded up or worn down over one ear; the top is a swirl of pretty, easy to work patterns that make this project a great traveler and a beautiful gift.
Model is also sporting our "Rain on a Hot Tin Roof" Eternity Scarf & Cowl in all 5 shades of Stone Soup.
