The Design

"Just a thought..."

Inspired by a ready-to-wear Italian cashmere cap, we engineered our hand-knit version to be sleek and utterly seamless. The super-fine fabric is doubled at the cuff with a tiny joining welt for extra warmth. And that cool welt could be popped with a fun, contrast color. Okay, the needles are tiny and the details a little fussy, but it’s worth it—we think!

Knit in Shibui Pebble on those tiny needles, this fabric will be beyond soft. This version is done with just one color, but the welt is well defined. And the quiet, fuzzy woolliness of this silk, merino and cashmere blend? Absolutely dreamy.
