Hat, knitted from the yarn from Roan Mountain Goats

Pictured above is our newest offering: a hat, handkitted from the mohair of the Roan Mountain Goats. It is EXTREMELY warm, fits nicely on the head, with enough length to pull the hat all the way down over your forehead on those cold, windy days. The naturally curled brim stays put, and doesn't ride up over your ears.

Ribbed Brim also available

Wide Ribbed Brim

Besides the curled brim shown above, the hat is also available in two other styles: one with a wide ribbed brim, wide enough to fold up as a second layer over your ears and forehead (shown above). And a second ribbed style that is about 2 inches shorter so it only comes down to cover ears with single layer (shown below). This one is $10 less than the other 2 styles.

The mohair collected from our goats is spun into yarn by Green Mountain Spinnery. Unlike most commercial mills, they use no chemicals to bleach, moth-proof or shrink-proof their yarns, making for a very clean, "green" fiber. The yarn's make-up is is 60% Roan Mountain Goat mohair and 40% fine wool. Natural color, no dyes added.

What a neat way to make a donation to the Goats on the Roan project AND get something nice for yourself (or someone else!)
