Economy Chile Hat Kit

$17.00

The Economy kit contains all of the same materials as a standard KidKnits craft kit, but the kits are packed in recycled plastic bags, rather than the hand-sewn bags.  This kit option is perfect for troops on a budget who would like to participate in the KidKnits project for the lowest possible price!

 

This KidKnits craft kit includes yarn from our partner, Casa Ursulina, which is handspun in Chile.  The wool is 100% highlander sheep's wool.  The Highlander breed of sheep is native to New Zealand but has recently been introduced in Chile and produces a warm, soft yarn.  This yarn is a two-ply yarn and is spun on a spinning wheel.  Each ball of yarn is 70 yards in length, and weighs approximately 120 gram. Kits are available with each of the following seven colors:

  • Blanco invierno  (white) yarn is undyed, natural yarn
  • Morado (purple)
  • Turquesa (turquoise)
  • Rojo claro (light red/orange)
  • Dorado (gold/yellow)
  • Verde (green)
  • Gris (gray)
  • Rosa (pink)
  • Marrón (maroon) 
Please note that all of our yarn is hand dyed in small batches so some color variation does exist and is a natural result of this process.
    In addition to the yarn, each kit includes everything needed to make a hat including 
    • One 9 1/2" round loom
    • One knitting hook
    • One needle
    • One personalized gift tag
    • One KidKnits logo tag, made in Nairobi, Kenya from recycled aluminum cans.
    • Instructions needed to complete your KidKnits hat
