Hemp is an amazingly versatile fiber and just one of the many uses for it is yarn. It makes for a great hat because it keeps your head warm and it’s super strong and durable (perfect for my husband who works outdoors and needs a hat that is rugged). And you can throw it in the washer and dryer–the more you wash it, the more soft and worn in it will become. It’s knit in the round starting at the bottom.
