Did You Know?Did you know...In New France, on the week-days of summer every one wore a straw hat which the women of the household spent part of each winter in plaiting. In cold weather the knitted 'tuque' made in vivid colors was the great favorite. It was warm and picturesque. Each section of the colony had its own color; the habitants in the vicinity of Quebec wore blue 'tuques', while those around Montreal preferred red.
