Beret- Hand Knit and Felted- Purple and Cochineal Pink- Colette – Made to Order
1 in stock
Colette is a hand knit and felted cozy beret made from Canadian Wool. After knitting an oversized beret, I then mercilessly shrink it by hand. The felting creates a very thick, water and wind resistant hat. The flowers are made from merino wool.
The hat can be worn at a jaunty angle or pulled down low to cover the ears.
This is a hat that will last a few lifetimes. When its time comes, the beret, made from all natural fibres, will biodegrade and become compost for your great great grandchildren’s vegetable garden.
This particular hat is ready to ship. It will fit several head sizes as there is stretch, but if your head size is very large or very small then it is best to let me make you a custom hat.
To measure your head, take a soft tape measure and measure just above the eyebrows, above the tips of the ears and around the largest part of the back of your head. Try to not let the tape measure swoop down towards your neck. If you don’t have a soft tape measure you can use a string and then carefully measure the string. Repeat this a few times to be sure that you keep getting the same number.
Would you like this hat in a different colour? Please ask. I’m happy to oblige if I have that colour yarn in stock. I can also make this hat with different flower colours.
I do accept returns if you let me know within 1 day of receiving the hat and post it back to me within 3 days.
