Short Description: There is something about true farm yarn that tells me it wants to be used - worn, loved and put to work - and it was no different when Wing and a Prayer’s Winter Borrow found it’s way into my hands. This gorgeous, rustic but soft, 100% Shetland wool from the beautiful pastures of Vermont was begging to be turned into something practical and useful. And so Earlyrising was born. A unisex ‘let’s get the chores done’ kind of hat. Full of texture and all over intertwining cables Earlyrising is now our go-to hat - for the early and the late milking shifts to the midday kid feeding -on my husband’s head or mine, it works for everyone, every job, every day!
