Love the hat! Fits beautifully and the shipping from Canada to the U.S. was speedy. Good experience!
Knit, Felted, and Ready-to-Wear
Julie Sinden Handmade is a Toronto-based company that designs and produces 100 percent merino, boiled wool winter hats. While most cold weather hats can be bulky and unattractive, ours are super stylish yet deceptively warm.
Each piece is first knit, loose and large, then felted (or shrunk), to create a new fabric, one that is seamless, durable, and super duper warm. Using merino wool means that our hats are also incredibly soft, comfortable, and breathable.
While many hats have to sacrifice warmth for style or vice versa, our unique boiled wool process allows for a hat that is both functional and chic. Our hats can be worn to a nice dinner out as easily as they can be worn on the ski slopes. We create our hats with timeless, classic fashion in mind as we know that the hats will last for many seasons.
All of the hats are size medium or one size fits all, but you can easily request size small or large. Better yet, send us the circumference of your head with your order and we will make sure that the hat you choose is the perfect size for you!
All pieces are made by Julie and her small team, and all of our materials are sourced within North America.
Owner, Maker, Designer

Seam Sewer, Sales
Clare is in charge of one step per hat - but it's a big one! She sews the seam that makes each hat a hat, on every single hat we make. Clare is also a sales superstar, and is stopped on the street daily by folks who want a hat just like hers.
AJ knits the summer away, usually while listening to 90's angst ridden singers like Ani DiFranco and Tori Amos.
Superstar photographer Ken takes all the shots that bring our products to your computer screen. He's also been known to pinch hit for a sales shift at the One of a Kind.

Additional policies and FAQs
If you would like to request a smaller or larger size, just send us your head size in a note to seller to let us know. Not sure about your size? Measure the circumference of your head, along the top of your ears and across your forehead, and send us the number with your order - we will make sure the hat we send you is the right size for you.
And again – if you receive your hat and are not satisfied with the size, (or anything else) we will gladly exchange or return it for you.
We will happily gift wrap and include a note with your purchase if it is a gift.
