Skyline Slouch Kit Using Blue Sky Fibers Eco-Cashmere
The Skyline Slouch is all about bold bands of color—contemporary, cosmopolitan, and, of course, cozy! A deep ribbed section around the brim keeps this slouchy hat snug around your ears, while a fluffy pom-pom adds a bit of playful spunk.
Blue Sky Fibers Eco-Cashmere—a DK-weight blend of half recycled and half virgin cashmere—creates a Skyline Slouch with lush, lived-in softness. Nice and lofty, Eco-Cashmere knits up into a cozy fabric with lots of drape—just what we love in a slouchy hat.
Blue Sky Fibers has grouped together a colorway of just-off-primary colors and a soft grey and kitted them in a lovely canvas bag. Each kit comes with four skeins of Eco-Cashmere (enough for two complete hats!) and the Skyline Slouch pattern.
Approx. 19"/48cm circumference x 10 1/2"/27cm height.
4 skein Blue Sky Fibers Eco-Cashmere (164 yds/150m each).
