Vite (French for “quick”) is a reversible hat that’s all about celebrating the yarn. Featuring Nutmeg Fiber’s Retreat yarn & Isager’s Silk Mohair yarn (two strands of Retreat + one strand Silk Mohair held together) to create a truly unique fabric. Retreat is a naturally dyed yarn that has slight thick/thin variation and the Silk Mohair adds an angelic halo and shimmer.
