So you might think that the middle of August is the wrong time to be thinking about warm snuggly baby hats … but maybe that’s just because you are living in a place where summer = hot, humid days and record breaking highs. (I envy those of you who are…) Anyway, whether you’re living where summer is in full swing, or it just makes a showing for an hour or so each day, Beanie Designs is a GREAT website to do some shopping in preparation for the chilly weather that is really just around the corner. Don’t get me wrong, Beanie Designs also has a great selection of infant hats and baby accessories that are perfect for summer, but I was lucky enough to get to test out one of their top selling winter baby hats. The great selection and wide variety of products that you find at Beanie Designs actually range from the tiniest newborn hats, to knitted baby mittens and booties, and even hats for children into the preteen years!
Like I mentioned earlier, I was lucky enough to sample one of Beanie Designs’ customer favorites, the Beanie Designs (Organic Cotton Ear Flap Hat). When the hat arrived, I immediately pulled it out for my toddler. “Hat” was his first word, and he loves them! I guess I should add that Beanie Designs has great sizing for toddler hats. It was a perfect fit, but still left a little room for growing. I know it will come in use this winter when we hit our lovely, windy, PNW winter!
The knit was extremely high quality and the yarn used was extremely soft. This is not the scratchy wool hat that you might be thinking of. According to Beanie Designs, ”all the cute baby, kids and toddler hats at Beanie Designs are 100% handmade with high-quality yarns and a focus on long-lasting comfort.” I can honestly say that I completely support their statement. While some of their prices may seem a bit high at first, their newborn, infant, and toddler hats are very high quality and will last quite awhile. They also offer free shipping on all US orders!
Even better, Beanie Designs has agreed to do a giveaway for MomStart readers! They will let you choose any baby hat from their site and ship it to you, free of charge!
