This hat is pure decadence. The yarn used is uniquely hand-spun in a blend of guilt-free mink and luxurious cashmere, resulting in a fabric with a wonderfully soft halo. Knit into a classic slouchy shape, it drapes like a dream and feels even better.

bécot: (french) a small affectionate kiss, as like a peck from a bird.
