Sky Like Snow hats infuse the spirit of Vermont's fields and forests into soft gems that warm both the head and heart. The process begins along several tracks: inspiration from rambles through the Vermont landscape; individual fleeces purchased from local farms; crops of dye plants grown from seed; and wild foraged plants, lichen and mushrooms that are extracted into an earthy palette of dyes. The organic, flowing surface patterning is achieved by hand-dyeing carefully measured skeins of yarn before it is knit. Each hat is knit individually on a non-electric vintage knitting machine. The stretchy knit and different styles grace heads of diverse shapes and sizes.
