The Shetland Hap is a constant source of inspiration to me – the simple beauty of a hard working garment. The Broadturn Hap is one you can throw over your shoulders when feeding the chickens in the morning, keeping cozy while you work. It is named for one of my favorite farms, where I have many fond memories of feeding chickens, slopping pigs and digging carrots. The larger size can be wrapped around and tied at the back to be worn more like a garment, while the smaller size is suitable to be worn as a scarf.
