Choose one skein Sheridan Bulky for each Drifter that you want to make. Their wool is American grown by ranchers near the mill in Buffalo, Wyoming. It’s all ecologically processed and kept natural in color or beautifully dyed in small batches.
While traveling out west this summer, I stopped in the mill to shop and get a tour. What a warm welcome I received! I’ve become a very big fan of their products, and I got inspired to dream up this hat design with some of the skeins I took home.
Enjoy this free pattern!
