Yarn and yardage
I used Sylvia aran by posh yarn (50% silk, 50 merino) for the red bonnet. Posh yarn only make one-off colourways so you will not get the same colour as shown. I used Luxury Yarns Altopiano cashmere & a multi coloured handspun yarn with short colour repeats for the grey, bonnet. You can of course substitute any ultra soft aran yarn
