Plant Fiber Hats and Caps

This is the time of year that I usually start making lighter weight hats and caps out of plant fibers such as hemp, cotton, linen, bamboo and silk.  However it's been so cold where I live in Northern California that I just haven't had much inspiration.  People are still wearing their warm wool hats around here, and it's almost June!

So I'm just now getting around to posting the first of my "spring caps" here.  I put this hat up on the website a couple of weeks ago, thinking I would be making more soon.  Hopefully we'll have a shift to warm weather any day now, which will get me in the mood.

This cap is made from medium weight organic cotton, so is actually fine for any time of year, though it's not as warm as wool.  Cotton also works well for those with sensitivity to wool.  The olive and gray/green wide stripes are both cotton, and the thinner accent stripes are tan colored undyed linen and beige colorganic cotton, which is the natural color of the fiber.
