Alpaca fiber is known for its amazing softness. Knitting or crocheting with alpaca is a pleasure, and it is perfect for the TLC required by babies. Alpaca is NOT machine-washable and so we designed a hat which is easy to handwash and will likely not be in need of washing often.
A color copy of this pattern is free when you purchase our dk-weight alpaca yarn that we had milled in Ashland, Maine, at a small fiber mill. Otherwise, it is available on Ravelry as a digital download for $4.
