Jo Gordon | Striped Hat in Black & Oatmeal
by Jo Gordon
DetailsIs there anything better than a striped hat with a pompom on top? Probably not as far as winter accessories go. Made of super soft lambswool, we love the classic and whimsical style of this piece!
About Jo Gordon"I commissioned my first knit as a teenager: A copy of a much-loved and much-darned hat that belonged to my dad. It was reproduced faithfully by my mum’s friend, Vilma. I was 16 and in Scotland it was cold: It looked perfect and worked beautifully. The hat had been reinvented. My appreciation for good making has not changed: I love things that are made honestly and function well. Wool is an honest, functional material and Scotland has a long history of making and producing the best knitwear in the world. It is driven by people with incredible skills and since I started I’ve worked with mills that share my passion for tradition and craft. Often small, these manufacturers understand the importance of keeping their skills alive. They are the best at what they do and supply a quality and authenticity that is at the heart of what I produce. For me being part of the process from design to manufacture to buyer is vitally important in creating knitwear that will be as enduring as the origins it comes from – knitwear that you will want to care for and in return will serve you well."
