Caitlin Hunter's Alpine Bloom Hat is a sweet stranded knitting project. And, if you haven't knit a stranded knitting project with our Elmer Fingering or Elmer Tweed Fingering, you're in for a treat -- the resulting fabric is so squeezably soft!

Elmer Fingering is a woolen spun Merino/ Cashmere blend. Like Elmer Tweed, it's rustic with a beautiful texture and richness. It’s fantastic on its own and perfect for colorwork. It’s light, lofty and holds its shape beautifully. All the hold and snap back of wool with a whisper of cashmere for softness and halo.
We just had to have us some tweed— some Elmer Tweed! Elmer Tweed is woolen spun with more than just a pinch of cashmere. It has a rustic essence and a beautiful richness. It’s fantastic on its own and perfect for colorwork. This tweed holds its shape beautifully while remaining lightweight. The little tweedy bits of color keep you wanting to knit “just one more round” in anticipation of what bits will appear next. This incredibly plush yarn will bring you right onto the tweed bandwagon if we do say so ourselves! (Elmer Tweed is 70% wool and 30% cashmere.)
