hats are made with 100% Acrylic yarn. While I enjoy natural fibers,
I find that wool is too itchy for me and most of my customers. While
cotton is soft and comfortable,
it does not provide the warmth that acrylic provides, and tends to loose
its shape rather easily. Therefore, I work with acrylic, which provides
nearly the same warmth as wool, is comfortable like cotton, and washes
easily. Kids find it comfortable, and will actually keep the hats
on their heads, which is the ultimate goal.
The Angora that I use on certain hats is imported from France. It
is soft and luxurious and adds a special touch to the hat. I offer
Angora in white only. The angora yarn requires that you wash it in
cold water (machine or hand) and lay it flat to dry.
The hats with earflaps are designed to come down over the ears and make
the hat fit snugly over the back of the neck.
The doll hats are popular since most little girls love having their dolls
wear the same hats as they do.
All hats are made right here in my studio. I work only with my own designs.
I strive to provide designs that will make the child (or adult!) happy
to wear the hat!
