A New Take on the double layered reversible beanie in which there are so many ver- sions out there, here is to them all.

A New Take on the double layered reversible beanie. Continuing the collection in yarns cre- ated by the founders of mYak, this new version of the first one (found here). Is done with 2 skeins of the Fibre Gentili. A unisex hat which is a quick knit and the perfect gift giving item.

CONSTRUCTION

This hat is reversible and can be worn as
a slouch hat or the brim folded to wear as
a beanie and show off both sides. The hat uses square crown shaping, the “+” shape on the A side and pinwheel shaping on the B side. Using color A, the hat is worked from the brim to the crown starting with a pro- visional cast on, then using Color B, the live stitches of Color A are picked up and from there the hat is knit using Color B from the brim through the pinwheel shaping of the crown.
Ends are woven in
before beginning the crown of Color B. This hat utilizes 2 colors and 2 skeins of Fibre Gentili Sport Weight Yarn.

ABOUT THE FIBER

Efforts have been dedicated to recovering the last flocks of the pure breed and initiating a biodiversity preservation program as explained more in Our Story. Choosing Gentile di Lucania yarn means more than acquiring wool; you're wrapping yourself in history, tradition, and a commitment to a brighter, sustainable future.

THE WOOL

These sheep live the good life in the Basilicata region, roaming free among the ancient forests. Based in the Italian Biella textile district our supply chain is a well-guarded secret, ensuring quality and embracing social and environmental sustainability at every step.

THE FIBER PROCESS

All processing takes place in Biella's luxury textile district, home to ancient and invaluable craftsmanship where the human touch still makes a significant difference.

The hand-dyed colors of the Elements Capsule are crafted by Tréliz, representing an excellence in Mediterranean creativity and artisanal work.

RECCOMENDED CARE

Handle our soft and delightful yarn with care. It's delicate nature requires gentle attention for a soft, airy fluff finish. Be mindful of its fragility when winding and knitting with it. With proper care, your final product will showcase the beauty of this yarn without any compromise in quality.

WET-BLOCKING

  1. Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
  2. Submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
  3. Soak work for 30 minutes or longer allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
  4. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
  5. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
