Hokitika Hat

Gorgeous Noro Haunui Silk (pronounced Hoo-noo-ee and translated as “place of the winds”) is available in 5 un-dyed colors. This is a natural blend of raw mulberry silk and unique mixed-breed Haunui merino wool from theTaranui farm in New Zealand. The fiber has a slight thick and thin quality to the single ply. 
It's shown here in a classic cable and bobble hat and there's enough yarn in one skein to make two hats, or a hat and cowl, which makes it a great buy-one-gift-one project!
