My friend, Kristen, sent hand knit hats for my girls. They are alpaca wool from the farm where her kids attend preschool. Even the dyes for the wool are from flowers on the farm. Seriously. They are so soft and are the cutest things EVER! I've been asked several times by complete strangers where I bought them or where they can purchase the pattern. I feel so posh when I say they are from an alpaca farm in England. Thank you Kristen for your thoughtfulness. We love them!
