The design of overlapping ovals decorate this hat and scarf set. Techno is a very lightweight yet extremely warm and soft yarn that is composed of a silk casing around Baby Alpaca and Merino Wool fibers. Because the fibers are blown in, the yarn blooms after blocking, and has a slightly fuzzy halo.
