This is another Whoa, yarn is expensive! thread. :thud:
I’d like to make a hat for my dad to wear while he jogs, hikes, whatever that isn’t heavy and isn’t scratchy. Silk is a great insulator, but everything online is so expensive, or girly! Some yarn isn’t that expensive, but it’s fingering weight or lighter. My dad is not a girly man, or I’d make him one out of the recycled sari silk. Does anybody have any recommendations for relatively cheap silk/silk blends? It doesn’t have to be fancy, the rawer the silk, the better it insulates. Thanks!
