This beret was crocheted from yarn which I dyed and spun. The pattern is based on a lacy doily, and is perfect for summer. It will fit a 20 inch to a 22 inch diameter head. I use professional acid dyes for all my dyeing. Since this is crocheted with 100% wool, it should not be washed and dried in the machine. Please wash by hand with a gentle detergent in cool water, and don't wring or twist. Lay flat to dry, or you can stretch it over a dinner plate to help it retain it's shape. All of my items are made in a smoke free home. I do have a guinea pig, but she doesn't crawl all over my yarn! If you are out of the US, please contact me for a shipping quote.
