Knit Caps: Diana's Designs supplies the Raising-Rabbits Store with beautiful, high quality knit caps knitted with 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.
It was probably 10 years ago that I purchased an angora and wool blend beanie cap from an angora rabbit breeder. It set me back around USD$30, which I thought was an exorbitant price at the time.
But you know what? When the weather turns cold, THAT is the best cap EVER! It is the cap I immediately reach for. I wear it doing chores. I wear it to town while doing errands. I wear it to church, even. 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!
I'm wearing it in the photo at left, 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.
Rabbit breeders know that there are no substitutes for keeping naked newborn rabbit kits warm in the nestbox outside of their mama's own pulled 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 pull enough of her own fur to line and cover the nest.
In the case of humans, 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.
Need a really warm cap that is also bright and stylish? Knit caps by Diana's Designs will keep anyone snug and warm.
These are beautiful caps with luxurious loft and halos, evidence of the desirable angora fiber.
