Knit Caps

Indulge in luxury with hand knitted caps from Diana’s Design. These high quality caps are made from animal fiber blend yarns for ultimate warmth.

Beanie cap, beanie hat, or knit beanie - whatever you call it, knit caps by Diana's Designs are knit with love out of angora wool (goat, rabbit) and wool or acrylic, helping to keep you warm through the coldest days.

These beautiful caps are made with a blend of natural animal fibers for comfort and warmth, and synthetic fibers for durability and ease of care. The colors are gentle neutral shades that can complement any wardrobe, from charming rustic to city chic. These hats were inspired by the beautiful forests of the Pacific Northwest where they were lovingly crafted. When you look at and feel these caps, it’s like experiencing the natural beauty of Washington state with its stately trees and pristine beaches.

Why buy animal fiber? Animal fibers are a natural resource that replenishes the earth. The rabbits, sheep, and goats that provide fibers are part of the natural ecology, so they are a green renewable resource. Animal fibers provide warmth while wicking away moisture, meaning you stay dry, healthy and comfortable. Animal fibers also have flame retardant properties; in the days before synthetic fabrics, it was recommended that children’s sleepwear be made from protective wool. These caps also make great gifts for special people in your life. Animal fiber caps are quality, luxury, and style.



10 years ago I purchased an angora and wool blend beanie cap from an angora rabbit breeder. It cost around USD $30, and it has been worth so much more! 

 When the weather turns cold, THAT is the best cap EVER! It is the cap I immediately reach for. I wear it doing chores, running to town while doing errands, and I even wear it to church. I wear it everywhere. It keeps me warm even when it gets wet from rain or snow. I haven't for a minute regretted the dollars spent.

More recently, my good friend Diana gifted me with a beautiful lavender knit beanie cap. I love it! 

There we are, during a girl's outing to Victoria, BC, Canada. We had just stepped out of the near-freezing December air into a restaurant in downtown Victoria.

That's Diana on the left with her beautiful light hair and blazing smile. Her knit cap served me very well! 

That's when I learned that Diana is a skilled artisan, and as owner of Diana's Designs, was willing to produce top quality animal fiber knit caps for Raising-Rabbits.  


Animal Fiber Knit Caps are the Warmest

Rabbit breeders know that there are no substitutes for keeping naked newborn rabbit kits warm in the nestbox outside of their mama's own shed fur. At least, there are no known non-animal-fiber substitutes that will reliably keep the kits warm and alive if the doe has failed to shed enough of her own fur to line and cover the nest.

In the case of people, much of a body's heat escapes through the top of the head.

Why just let that heat leak slowly out into the freezing air? 

Instead, use a cap made with animal fibers!

Knit caps that do the best job of keeping folks warm during the really frigid dead-of-winter days are the ones that include a percentage of animal fiber in the yarn. It doesn't always require huge percentages of wool or angora. Rabbit angora fibers alone are almost too warm. Instead, yarn spinners typically mix fibers - including various percentages of very warm angora, warm wool, and also some acrylic or other fiber.
