The hat is almost white cashmere, the simple lines and classic styling make it an heirloom classic. It is intended to be passed on to the next generation without ever going out of style. With proper care it will last for a long time.
The pattern is a simple stocking stitch with rib accents which do not detract from the beauty of the yarn or distract the viewers eye.
I’ve chosen a perfectly matched button for the closure. This helmet is a perfect companion piece for the Cashmere Baby Vest
This baby helmet is made completely by hand by an experienced fiber artist from the best natural luxury and exotic fibers available in the world. It would make a perfect baby gift for someone very special.
THE NATURAL LUXURY FIBERS
100% Pure Cashmere
The cashmere used in this little hat grew as the downy undercoat of a cashmere goat that lives in Mongolia where the very finest quality cashmere in the world is grown.
This baby hat is knit by hand from yarn that I spun especially for this project.
First I card the fibers to fluff them up and get out any tangles. This also lines up the fibers to make them easier to spin.
Once the fiber is carded to my satisfaction i take it in to my spinning wheel and listen to an audio book while I spin it up. Once I have 2 bobbins full I go back and “ply” them together. Most of my handspun yarns have 2 plies.
As with everything I knit this original design is lovingly and expertly hand knitted in the traditional fashion with great attention to detail. The lines are Simple, Classic and Timeless.
Any baby will appreciate the luxurious warmth and softness, any mother will love the simple, classic lines and exceptional warmth of this vest.
A very special heirloom gift for any baby. You will like it even better when you get it into your own hands.
