Inspired by the gentle crackling sound of a wood log burning - the early days of Autumn when my family enjoys sitting out by the firepit as the sun begins to set in the late afternoon.
Everyday moments that warm our hearts and bring us comfort.

Fig & Fireside is a DK weight slouchy fit beanie, showcasing texture throughout. The twisted rib brim is generous in size to encourage the slouchy fit or for ease of folding over to create a double layer brim.
