With Shetland Wool Week just days away, I dug into my stash of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift that I had leftover from making the Beezy’s Traditional Beret last year to get started on my Shwook Hat.
I can certainly say that when you buy Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift, you are bound to get at least a few hats from it or bits and pieces to use in other projects. Amazing how 25 g of shetland wool can go on forever. To my advantage, I suppose.
The Shwook Hat calls for three darks and two lights if using what is on hand. This is what I decided on. For the darks: bark brown, deep heather green, and a maroon red. For the lights: apple green and yellow-tint oatmeal. I think they will work just fine. You can hardly go wrong with fair isle. It would take some pretty putrid colors to really fail.
