For our shop hats we used:-

For the cream hat shade 001 of Rico Luxury Alpaca Superfine. This hat features a ribbed brim and is a closer fitting beanie style. We added a pom pom in colour 001. 

The charcoal grey hat (colour now discontinued, but try shade 004 oRico Luxury Alpaca Superfine instead) has no rib and a slouchy shape. We added a bright pop of orange with a pom pom in colour 014

The pink hat is knitted using 2 strands of Rowan Alpaca Classic in shade 129 and has a baby pink (colour 019) pom pom.

You can see our full range of pom poms here.

Obviously a Pom Pom is optional. The hat looks really good without one!
