Silas Beanie – Graphite Melange
These hats are knitted by Jessye Boulton in her studio in Penwith just outside Penzance. Jessye studied for a degree in fashion/knitwear at Winchester School of Art and then returned to her hometown after graduating. The colours of her knitwear are informed by the colours of her local area; the moorland between the South and North coasts of the Penwith peninsula and the sea.
This knitted hat is made from a combination of lambswool and merino wool which are deadstock wools; end of line wools that are using up small amounts of stock. The wools are organic.
The hat is one size and unisex.
Handwash only, dry flat, steam iron to shape
