This kit includes a PDF knitting pattern for the Rimeflower hat and two undyed 50g skeins of Paddock Alpaca yarn (one White and one Mid-Brown).

The Rimeflower Hat was inspired by early morning frost on the dried-out flower stalks in winter fields. It’s worked in two colours, in the round from the bottom up, with corrugated ribbing for the brim flowing into a stranded motif recalling flower stalks and blooms on the main body of the hat.

Paddock alpaca is a celebration of beautiful, undyed small-flock alpaca. It's a soft, slightly lustrous yarn with a fuzzy halo. The alpaca fibre is sourced from a single flock in Somerset, just south of Bristol, and is spun in the UK. This colour is the natural, undyed white yarn.

The yarn is a sport/light DK weight, worsted-spun with a medium twist that blooms wonderfully after soaking. It has some good drape and not much friction to it, and the halo means it can be worked at a slightly looser tension for an airy feel.
