Knitted bonnet, clay
Handmade newborn baby bonnet knitted in Helsinki, Finland. Bonnet has strings and seamless round shape makes it comfortable for a little one to wear.
Rouheaknits (me, Pia) is creating a tiny batch of bonnets and booties for newborns for Birches & Wool using yarns I already have. Yarns that I have found beautiful over the past couple of years. Yarns that, for some reason or other, haven't found a life in new designs. Usually it is because I might only have one skein. Like this wool yarn that I dyed with avocado when our older one was still a baby. Now this yarn and the memories it holds is woven into something precious.
These treasures are handmade which means the measurements may vary slightly.
100% mulesing free merino wool
This merino wool comes from sheep bred in Patagonia, where mulesing is not practiced. The wool can be traced directly back to the farm it comes from.
0-3m (Head circumference approx. 34-40 cm / 13.5-15.75 inches)
Washing & Care
Natural fibres only need some airing to stay fresh and they keep the moisture off the skin - naturally.
If washing proves necessary, I recommend a gentle hand wash with lukewarm water (30C). Only use wool detergent.
Dry the bonnet on a flat surface (do not hang). Shape the bonnet while damp to avoid too much stretching.
