This tam is mostly wool with some white angora and mohair trim. The pink is Corriedale, and the wide gold section is Suffolk, which has a more nubbly look making for a nice contrast in texture. The medium gray Merino wool around the center has been plied with gold metallic thread.  There are also two thin stripes of variegated Merino that have been plied with more gold thread, but which has tiny gold leaves positioned at intervals.  This tam is 11 inches in diameter and fits a medium large size.
