North Light Fibers – Block Island Gansey Hat Kit
Mariners work all-around-the-clock in all kinds of weather to deliver the things that make modern life possible. The Seamen’s Church Institute is an outstanding organization dedicated to helping them.
They teamed up with North Light Fibers and Deborah Newton to offer a hat pattern inspired by seafarers and Rhode Island’s historic Block Island. This seafaring hat doesn’t mean you to need to work on the ocean to appreciate it: it keeps heads warm and dry on both water and land.
To make it even more special, North Light Fibers created Ocean Avenue, a sumptuous new 100% fine Merino yarn in maritime colours, especially for this project.
