Beanie Hat with Glass Beads Hand Knitted from Hand Dyed 100% Wool - TENAS FALLS by Kat
TENAS FALLS is part of our Waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge series. Tenas Falls takes its name from a Chinookan word meaning "small", and skips about 25 feet down a small ledge in two tiers. Kat knitted this hat in a lace stitch pattern from 100% Wool Yarn. The light blue yarn has been hand-dyed with purple in a way that the color changes from the bottom of the hat to the top. This item is unique because: Kat hand-dyed only enough yarn to make this hat. The pattern/color cannot ever be reproduced. Much care and work has gone into this hat, and it should 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.
