Hi. I want to knit a blaze orange hunting hat for my brother-in-law who is a hunter. I was hoping to make it out of wool. I have been looking, but anyone have suggestions on a brand that has a superwash wool in a brighter orange?? Thanks!

Cascade 220 superwash color 825 might work too

Thanks so much Kelly! I have now bookmarked Yarndex. That is a very helpful site. I think I am going to go with the Plymouth Encore if I can find it at a good price. :)

Actually, I knitted one for my father in law. It was the perfect color, even though it wasn't in wool and it knit up nicely. I used Patons Canadiana in deep orange. It really is safety orange. I also used a great watchcap pattern as well.

Here is the yarn http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/068902.html

and here is the pattern I used...
