By purchasing yarn from String Theory, you’re lifting up a number of small and female-owned businesses. We help women in Rwanda, who survived the genocide, educate a new generation. We help women in Uruguay find meaningful work without leaving their rural homes. We help a family in New Hampshire maintain a mill, a tradition spanning hundreds of years. We help restore the Patagonia Grasslands by encouraging sustainable farming.Every yarn we stock makes a positive impact.
Every year during the Chicago Yarn Crawl, we highlight a yarn company that exemplifies who we are and what we believe at String Theory. This year, we want you to take a closer look at earth-friendly Laneras.
Their commitment to sustainability goes beyond the source of their wool. For example, in the factory where the wool is processed, the water they use is collected rainwater. All liquid and solid effluents are treated to meet the highest standards and are re-used onsite. In fact, this factory was recently evaluated as carbon-negative, which means they are removing more carbon from the environment than they are producing.
You will need two contrasting skeins of yarn. With two 100g skeins, there will be enough to make two hats if you switch the Main Color and the Contrast Color for the second one.
The pattern includes links to my favorite tutorials for a folded hem and helical stripes. I’ve also included an option to skip the folded hem, but I strongly encourage you to try it and potentially learn something new.
