Devon Mariner Hat – by Helena Timms
The Devon Mariner is a cosy fisherman’s rib beanie designed for keeping the Devon mizzle at bay. Knit in our Devonia DK yarn, which is made from wool sourced entirely from North Devon. Helena’s hat features a top panel inspired by the detailing on the traditional Appledore Frock (North Devon sailor’s Guernsey sweater) and a cable representing the twin rivers of the Lyn Valley. This hat is perfect for keeping fishermen (and women) dry and warm in the blustery weather.
