Product Description

These Peruvian hats, or ch’ullo, are masterful handknits from the village members of  The Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco (CTTC) in Peru. While the hats are most frequently worn by men and boys in Peru, these hats look great on everyone.

The hats are made of fine-gauge, natural alpaca with exquisite designs. They are knit in-the-round using double-pointed needles made of wire or bicycle spokes, or with one end of each needle having a small hook to catch the yarn; the yarn passes around the knitter’s neck to maintain even tension. In Accha Alta both men and women knit hats.

No two hats are identical. The basic design consists of bands of diamonds. These whimsical hats  have tasseled triangular ear flaps and a top tassel. The edges of the hat are finished with a fine knitted scallop.

To determine size: Measure your head circumference.  The circumference of both styles is 19 inches.
