Madder Root Naturally Dyed Fisherman's Beanie
Naturally dyed beanie hat. Handmade and dyed by our friend Ceilidh of Billynou using madder root to give a salmon pink colour. A natural dyeing process where plant material is bundled into the fiber and steamed to extract the colour.
100% lambswool beanie in above-the-ear fisherman style. The beanie can be folded or rolled to your preferred length. Knitted on Ceilidh's vintage knitting machine, the geelong lambswool is considered to be one of the highest quality wools in the world and is extremely soft and not itchy! The hats are fully fashioned to ensure a close fit to the head and are knitted in english rib giving them a unique look which also allows for varying head sizes.
Please note: each beanie has been bundle or dip dyed with food waste or plants from Ceilidh's home and garden in France. Appearance will vary from the photos.
HAT MEASUREMENTS: CIRCUMFERENCE 52CM, LENGTH 28CM
"A NOTE ON NATURAL DYES: NATURAL DYES ARE OFTEN DESCRIBED AS “LIVING COLOUR”. THEY HAVE A CHARM AND PERSONALITY VERY UNLIKE CHEMICAL DYES WITH THE MUCH HIGHER ENERGETIC VIBRATION OF LIFE. THIS DOES MEAN THAT SOME COLOURS MAY VARY OR FADE OVER TIME. IT IS IMPORTANT TO TREAT THEM WITH LOVE AND CARE, KEEPING THEM OUT OF SUNLIGHT WHEN NOT WEARING THEM AND WASHING THEM GENTLY WITH COOL WATER AND PH NEUTRAL SOAP."
