Mom and Baby Hat Set

My daughter, Allie, made these two hats.  She is also a spinner and hat maker.  Both hats are made from handspun and hand dyed wool, bamboo and angora.  The baby hat fits from 3 months to 2 years, and the adult one is a medium large to extra large. She wasn't really thinking of a mom and baby matching set, but it would certainly work well that way.

The adult hat is a slouchy style that she developed last winter.  It's a flattering style for most everyone, and works well for those who have big hair and like to wear it stuffed in a hat.  The colors are subtle shades of gray, blue gray and lavender gray.
