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.  help.gif


I've been allergic to wool my whole life.  Since we live in an area where it gets cold and windy,   cold.gif  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 simpleadditions@gmail.com.  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.
