Hahah! That's why I bought it, becasue i thought those hats were so cool. I could have just bought a hat for cheaper than the yarn, though, I think. But anyway, seriously, how often would I wear the hat? Like, twice. maybe.

ANYWAY, since KK didn't answer my question.... anyone?

I got it from Wool & Company in Geneva IL.(they do ship, but I couldn't find the yarn on the webpage; they have a TON of yarn!) It was 16 bucks a skein, which I thought was expensive, but while I was rolling it into a ball, I was glad I spent the money b/c it wasn't full of sticks or dirt or anything (I heard that a problem with other cheaper recycled silk yarns). Ebay has a TON of recycled silk, and the prices look pretty good, too, but I would email the seller and/or check feedback to see if it's good stuff or full of yucky chunkies.
