Spring Skull Cap
Here in Northern California we don't get much in the way of spring weather. It just goes from very cold to very hot. We did have a week or two of nice in between warm weather a couple of weeks ago, though, at which time a long time hat fan decided he needed an all hemp skull cap. This is what I made for him.
The off white is the natural color of the hemp, and the rest is dyed. The subtle dark green stripes really set this hat off and looked great with my friend's redhead complexion. He put it on right away when I delivered it and was mega pleased! Hemp is a great light weight fiber for warm weather, so I will hopefully find time to make a few more of these type caps for my website. Custom orders are also welcome this time of year from now until fall, when I start to get busy again.
