Have and Hold
Pom Pom Baby Hat
The Pom Pom hat has been hand crocheted, using a medium weight 100% extra fine merino wool. Ideal for cold Winter days.
Sourced from South America, meaning this wool is from non-mulesed sheep.
Before each hat is crocheted, Emma dyes the wool by hand, using naturally sourced plant or food waste dyes. Always dyed in small batches, and never making a hat in the same size from the same wool batch, means that every hat is completely unique!
These particular hats have been dyed using Laurel leaves (pale pink), Stinging Nettles (Nettle) and Avocado (tri-colour), from Emma's garden and surrounding woodlands (and the fridge). Extracting the dye takes a few days of simmering and soaking, varying soft shades of peach and pink are created. Each small dye batch varies so much based on seasonality, quantities and whether the leaves are old or young.
Every hat tells a story.
Naturally anti-bacterial, and odour resistant, you should hardly ever need to wash your hat. But if you do feel you need to wash it:
Hand wash cold with a pH neutral soap. Dry flat on a towel to keep its shape.
