Made with two skeins of the luxurious and earth-friendly cashmere yarn, the Snowy Peaks Hat is incredibly light-weight yet warm, thanks to the fiber and stranded colorwork. The yarn is half virgin cashmere and half recycled cashmere that has been discarded in the production process. Pick two different gray colorways and go to town!
