TYPE 837 LARGE DRAWN KNITTED HAT
The Large Drawn Knitted Hat is a more generously cut version of previous seasons’ drawn knitted hat, pulled together and hand sewn at the centre. There is enough fabric for it to be rolled up or worn low over the neck.
The lambswool yarn is knitted ‘greasy’ (dyed but otherwise unfinished) and then cold felted. Each piece is knitted around double the finished size, and shrinks during felting.The practice of felting wool fibre in cold water is older than weaving, spinning, or knitting, and knitwear has long been felted to increase its density and help protect against the wind. Unlike hot water felting, which matts the fibres together fully and creates a stiff fabric, cold felted knitting remains light and stretchy while being beautifully thick and soft.
