Your Hat Set, which comes festively packaged appropriate for gifting to your favorite fiber lover includes one skein 100 grams of superwash wool in your choice of weight plus white snap on faux fur pom pom (this newest batch from the vendor is a little larger, but not as large as the extra large pompoms) and snowflake or snowman stitch marker (may vary from picture) in your choice 4 different yarns.  You can always add a skein of Christmas Red Mohair/Silk from the Mohair Collection.  See Wendy's project on Ravelry here.
