Hebridean and Corriedale British wool beanie

hebridean and corridale mens beanie by roses workshop

The natural undyed dark brown wool from “Hebridean” sheep is the main colour of this classic mens beanie hat, with a contrasting simple Fairisle pattern of natural cream Corriedale wool.

You can wear it with the deep ribbed welt turned down, or for a more classic look you can turn the welt back for an extra cosy layer over your ears.

As usual I have hand-knitted this beanie hat "in the round", so there are no ugly uncomfortable seams. To fit average adult head size 55-62cm (21.5 - 24 inches) and slightly stretchy for a comfortable fit.

A great hat for the man whose job or hobby is outdoors in cold weather.

Hebridean sheep were otherwise known as St. Kilda sheep. They are a small breed originally from Scotland, with dark brown or black wool, and can have four horns.

The Corriedale sheep was created by cross breeding Merino and Lincoln sheep for a breed that would thrive in lower rainfall areas. My Corriedale yarn comes from Falkland sheep and is spun in the UK.
