Beanie Grunge Hat Hand Knitted from Hand Spun Hand Dyed 100% Wool  - ROXY ANN PEAK by Kat
ROXY ANN PEAK is part of our 'Oregon Mountains' series. Composed of several geologic layers, the majority of the peak is of volcanic origin and dates to the early Oligocene. It is primarily covered by oak savanna and open grassland on its lower slopes, and mixed coniferous forest on its upper slopes and summit. Kat hand-knitted it in a simple stitch to showcase the beauty of the hand-spun, hand-dyed yarn. It nicely reflects the attributes of the mountain listed above. Perfectly 'grunge' for your skater dude !!! This item is unique because: The yarn for this item has been hand-spun from 100% Wool, then hand-dyed. Much care and work has gone into this hat, and it needs to be hand washed. Hand-washing is actually rather simple: Put the item in a sink with warm water and a little bit of detergent or shampoo and let it sit for a little. Gently knead it a bit, rinse and gently wring it, and roll it into a towel to absorb the remaining moisture. Then let it air dry flat. Please do not hang it up to dry. It might stretch because wool is a natural fiber. For hand-dyed items, you can put a little bit of vinegar into the rinse for better color retention.
