Beyond The Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky composed the scores for two more of the world’s most beloved ballets: Sleeping Beauty and, of course, Swan Lake. In each of these ballets, Tchaikovsky’s unabashed
genius for emotional nuance takes centre stage. The almost heartbreakingly beautiful music is brought to life by the dancers and we are swept into the story. It is probably this emotional accessibility which makes all three Tchaikovsky ballets perennial fixtures for ballet companies around the world.

Forming a perfect Pas de Deux with the Tchaikovsky Mitts, this lovely hat is another tribute to our legendary composer. The Tchaikovsky Hat is a super fast knit using DK weight yarn and a fun, simple texture which will highlight the glories of your favourite skeins. It’s a great stash buster. This slightly slouchy beanie looks good on everyone: women, men and children. With four sizes to choose from, it’s a
beautiful fast gift that can fill up several spaces on your list.
