Since a fitted hat is meant to be warm, and since this one is lacy, I choose a yarn that would give me some halo in the finished hat.
Angora really does the job nicely. Alpaca would also be great. Since a hat needs to have some memory to keep it's shape and not drape, the yarn also needs to have a good balance of wool in it.Angora Garden's Corriedale/Angora was perfectly suited for my lovely, lacy fitted hat!
I hope you enjoy your hat as much as I do mine!

I'm a mother of 2 (so far) and an avid knitter and spinner. I own my own business, All for Love of Yarn. I dye yarn and fiber in a way that minimizes pooling; blotches of color. The yarn not only looks great in the skein, but in your finish project!
