If I'm posting in the wrong thread, I apologize in advance. Please direct me to the proper section if that is the case.
I recently developed a sensitivity to synthetic fleece. When I sew with it, my hands crack and bleed.
I've been allergic to wool my whole life. Since we live in an area where it gets cold and windy, this created a problem.
I need a hat made from cotton or bamboo yarn. No acrylic, no synthetics, no wool. My head is 22 1/2 inches around. I'd like it in off white or white since they match most colors.
I can pay or will barter something from my Etsy store.
If anyone can help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And again, if this is posted in the wrong place, I apologize.
What weight yarn?
I am fond of Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima. I have made a few hats out of it for little ones and am currently making an Old Shale scarf with it. It's a DK weight. Webs has quite a few nice cotton yarns.

Oh my gosh....I didn't even think about weight. I live in a place that gets really windy in the winter, my face is sensitive to the wind, and I have thinning hair. I went and checked a few things and that yarn sounds like it's perfect. I didn't realize it was going to be a bit of a deal to find 100% cotton yarn.
Thanks for asking that question.
