Which cold weather collection would be complete without a colourwork hat? Rubellite is going to keep our heads warm in the upcoming cold season - and we suspect it might do the same to our hands as it’s one of those projects you can’t put down. Its distinct geometric shapes
flow into each other and the pops of vivid pink on a dark, neutral background put a smile on our face every time we pull the hat out of the drawer. De Rerum Natura’s yarn is a perfect woolly match for this design!
