Our chunky Fair Trade beanie is hand-knitted by artisans supported by Manos del Uruguay, a non-profit company founded in 1968 to support rural women who are part of 12 cooperatives in the countryside of Uruguay. Crafted from wool which is spun and dyed by hand, then finished with blanket stitches around the turn-up hem.
Hand wash. 100% pure new wool.
Made in Uruguay.
Soft yarns are liable to pill to some extent, even when using those of the best quality. To take good care of them remove any pills using a pilling comb and protect them from sharp items or jewellery that may catch or snag.
Made in India from recycled cotton saris, hand stitched together using Kantha needlework – a running stitch typical of West Bengal. The small groups of men and women who make these items work in collaboration with a fair trade organisation that supports them in business and marketing. Because the saris are sourced individually and hand stitched, no two pieces are the same.
Head circumference fits 57cm.
