The Barley Hat from Tin Can Knits is the fourth project in their Simple Collection, knit with 1 skein of our Urth Yarns Harvest or Monokrom Worsted to create a cozy, machine washable hat. This scrumptious, hand-dyed hat can be sized to fit a head circumference from 16-23” and can be knit as a slouchy or tight fighting beanie. Choose from naturally dyed, solid tones in our Harvest Worsted or vibrant, tonal shades in our Monokrom line.
When you choose Urth Yarns you are supporting a workforce of strong women who hand-dye their yarns in Mersin and Istanbul. Each Urth Yarns skein purchased plants a tree as part of the #knitoneplantone movement. Join us in helping Trees for the Future in their mission to provide families with tools and knowledge to plant trees in Africa.
"Planting trees provides families with more than just food. It provides income, empowerment, unity, leadership, education and even saves lives. When we can teach people to value themselves and their environment, they see amazing improvements in their standard of living."
