MOG Hats to Support Student Scholarships
Twenty cosy hand-knit MOG hats made from beautiful local wool to support our scholarship fund for Art on the Farm.
The second item in our little shop is a cosy hat knit by Rosie’s mother Mary. Referencing her initials, we have affectionately named them MOG hats. Mary literally knit 20 of these very special hats while sitting by the fire during the winter months.
The wool comes from Cushendale Mill; Rosie’s third cousin, Phillip Cushen owns the mill. One of Ireland’s few authentic woollen mills, it has been in his family for generations. The wool is from Irish sheep, and it is cleaned, spun and dyed at their mill in nearby Graiguenamanagh in county Kilkenny. The colour that we choose for our MOG hat is called “bracken”. As you will see it is a stunning blend of 6 colours, so it appears as a warm brown from the distance, with flecks of colour revealed up close.
Additionally, Rosie’s father, Michael, has created a little wooden tag for each hat; carefully cut from a piece of local yew wood, and engraved by Mary using a wood burning tool. There’s a lot of love in each of these hats! Mary designed this unisex hat to be worn in a number of different ways and can be ordered with or without a bobble. It’s just perfect for keeping your noggin toasty!
Priced at €85 each, to purchase one please contact Edel at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and shipping address specifying whether you would or would not like a bobble. All proceeds go towards our scholarship fund for Art on the Farm. It’s a win-win; receive something beautiful and unique while helping to provide a special experience for a young artist.
