Fray Hat: Designed by Aubrey Busek. Fray is a clever take on effortlessly cool, distressed denim – except the Fray Hat is knit using an irresistible combination of yarns. Minou, a sophisticated eyelash yarn, is a soft, warm blend of baby alpaca, merino wool, and nylon and creates the impression of frayed denim. It is paired with Ravello in a rich blue hue, using slip stitches to introduce visual and textural interest. The result is a hat perfect for keeping you warm and comfortable on cool days. Our favorite part? This hat is aesthetically reversible, making it a cinch to style and wear!
