soft, yummy, salmon-colored silk blend by Manos for the part that goes around my face. Right now, the hat is just not cohesive. I'm going to keep looking and thinking and I will likely get an idea and rip this out and try again. I don't mind. I have two great hats to wear in the meantime. This is a lot like solving a puzzle.
Did I mention, after clipping out the colors I don't like, this is all the yarn I've got -- not enough to finish the hat. I need to dip into some other yarns that I've avoided. I have a scratchy coral yarn that I can use as long as it's not on my face. I may blend the Manos yarn with some of the others. We'll see.
