Hand Knit Merino Wool Toque
We chose these thick merino toques for cool weather in the Great Bear Rainforest because they provide exceptional warmth and insulation. The vibrant hues and thick knit make them a fun accessory to protect against the chilly coastal weather of the region.
Handmade for Confluence Nimmo Bay by Vancouver Island based fibre artist, Diane Rudge.
100% Merino Wool
About Diane Rudge
Diane Rudge lives in Ucluelet, British Columbia, on the traditional territory of the Yuułuʔiłʔatḥ Ucluelet First Nation. She is a natural fibre and textile artist, handcrafting pieces from wall art to wearable knits. Each design Diane creates is unique and tells its own story. “My art allows me to slow down and focus on the present. I love the slow meditative process of working with natural fibres and creating handcrafted pieces.” Diane hopes to inspire and connect people with nature; whether that’s through their own personal exploration of natural fibres in her work or on a journey that they’ve already started. For Diane, working with nature and protecting it shapes everything that she does in her day-to-day life and in her art. She wants to inspire this same thought pattern for others to question their impact on the environment in their lives.
