BlueThis is the blue version of the border Leicester wool that I got from my sheep shearer. These great sheep are owned to keep the grass mowed on a small ranch in Idaho. The owners have them sheared each year and then give the wool to the shearer. It made some wonderful yarn which I hand dyed and knit into nice warm watch caps. As with all real wool, hand wash only and dry flat. If you use a bit of vinegar in the wash water the colors will stay nice and bright.
TurquoiseI just love working with colors! Either with rich, warm natural colors or bright hand dyed colors, it just feeds the artist inside me! My friend Pam taught me this technique of variegated color dying and I think my first efforts have turned out well. Once dyed, the colors create texture and dimension that you just can't duplicate. So each one of my watch hats are one of a kind. I may use that color again, but no two caps will ever look the same! This is more of the Border Leicester wool, obviously, in bright turquoise. Hand wash in cool water with a bit of vinegar in the water to keep the colors bright, then dry flat. Wool wears well, and with proper care, can last for decades. Enjoy!These three colors are what we currently have with a tassel. See our other caps without tassle for other colors.
