A classic look with a modern twist, this stylish stripe beanie-style hat packs some serious warmth.

It's densely knit alpaca with a chunky-weight yarn and outer shell and a  soft polar fleece band lining inside will keep you warm and cozy while looking sharp out in the country or within city limits. The perfect blend of functionality and style, this is the hat for the modern outdoors man or woman.

This hat is handcrafted on antique knitting machines, where the knitter is responsible for manually creating the pattern each time by using a combination of needle arrangements, toggles, and dials. The process combines century old knitting techniques, local artisans, and contemporary style to drive forward design without losing sight of past history and tradition.

Composition: Outer shell: 80% U.S. Alpaca, 20% Nylon. Inner Headband Lining: 100% Micro Polyester

Care Instructions: Hand wash Cold Water, Lay Flat to Air Dry

Colors: Charcoal Grey with Fawn Stripes, Heather Brown with Fawn Stripes

Island Alpaca Labeling

Island Alpaca Company contributes fleece to our local alpaca fiber cooperative for the processing of these gloves. For most teens & women. Made in the USA

Putting our fiber to work - Overview: Island Alpaca contributes half of our annual harvest to a local fiber cooperative which supports not only our farm, but other alpaca farms. Our local fiber cooperative is a processor that pride themselves on producing high-quality alpaca products and maximizing the value of our raw alpaca fiber, so that we can offer, in turn, this high-quality, environmentally and socially conscious alpaca products to the market.

At Island Alpaca, we give regular fiber supplements and ground flax daily to our alpaca, helping to promote overall good health and a superior quality fleece. Our alpaca fleece is so fine, that, last year, a large portion of our "seconds" (neck fiber) were re-sorted into the "prime" (blanket) category. Our textile lab has shown results that indicate that our alpaca are some of the finest in the country.

At Island Alpaca's annual shearing, we skirt and hand-sort the fleeces in order to produce a range of products which use all grades of fiber. At the cooperative, it is then sorted by color, grade, then hand-baled, scoured, spun and then finally, either machine knit or woven into beautiful, high quality alpaca products. Once the product is received at our Martha's Vineyard farm, they receive the Island Alpaca label and then become available to you for purchasing.

We hope you enjoy our product produced by our local fiber cooperative!
