A hand-knitted hat using yarn from Dornoch Shetlands and Woolly Sheep - with two natural lock bobbles handcrafted with fleece from Tiggy, using the coarser, wavier wool from over her britches.
Tiggy is a Shetland homebred ewe with a soft crimpy fleece, she is a bit timid so stays out of the way unless treats are on offer! She is pasture-fed in our little hanging vally, so her fleece is just vegetation converted into fibre by her clever body - and this cosy, carbon-sequestering wonder product will last for years to come, perfect for passing down the generations!
Note: my dolly model Rosie is an average 1 month old head circumference
