Some days all you need is a good dependable brew; something warm, strong and comforting. Everyday Brew is that hat you grab as you are running out of the door and notice it’s cold and blustery outside. It is thick and cosy with a deep brim to snuggle over your ears. The simple, unfussy textured pattern shows off the subtle variegation of hand dyed yarn beautifully and makes this an ideal unisex hat.
