I cannot review this purchase highly enough. The hat is absolutely gorgeous, and Rena was so considerate and friendly! I am so looking forward to surprising my husband with this for his birthday!

A wonderful experience and a gorgeous hat. Rena sent me updates and pictures so I was included in the creative process. The work of art she sent to me was even more beautiful than I had hoped. The hat fits perfectly and it seems like everyone who sees it falls in love with it as I have.

What can I say? Beautiful. Wonderful. Amazing. My wife, who is a felter herself, was completely taken aback. Thank you.

About

sculpting with wool

i guess you could say that i became a "fibre purist" once i had kids & got concerned about what they were wearing against their sensitive little bodies. so many of their hand-me-down hats were polyester fleece and even on the coldest days i'd remove their toques to find their heads sweaty & static-y. so i went on a mission to create a functional, natural, light-weight hat that covered their necks, stayed on (!), & looked cute. wool is a super fibre! merino wool in particular has amazing qualities that i wanted to harness in my ideal hat.

a friend had showed me how to wet-felt wool fibres a few years back & i fell in love with the process and wondered if i could create something 3-dimensional using the same technique. my experiment resulted in a misshapen cone-like shape & felt like a first-attempt fail :) but i poked at it, stuck it over a ball, felted it some more, put in some folds & a curl... there is absolutely nothing like the process of adaptation & it brought me to a place i would not have otherwise discovered. the felt elf hood was born! i added a few embellishments & velcro for the chin strap & voila, my little one wore it with no fuss, sweat or static! i thought that was the end, but then people started to comment & request - some strangers even gave me their card & asked to sell them in their store... i was delighted because the hat was such a happy mistake : )

Shipping
i use Canada Post (CP) for all of my shipping nationally and internationally. Shipping prices are dictated by CP.

Shipping within Canada is sent using trackable Expedited Mail and typically take between 2-7 days.

USA shipping will be sent using CP trackable Air Mail and generally takes between 4-7 days

international shipping (ie, everywhere except Canada and USA) will also be sent via CP Air Mail and generally takes between 6-10 business days. CP does not offer tracking for this service, however you may request an upgrade to trackable for generally an extra $30.

if you would like faster shipping, please convo me before you purchase to receive an estimate of cost & time.
Refunds and Exchanges
i do my utmost to create a product that you love - that includes making sure that the creation is to your size preference, colour preference, style preference and of high quality and meticulous crafting... to do this effectively, i encourage open conversations between myself and the buyer and provide photos through out the process so you have a chance to tweek the direction. custom orders are so fun for me and will be for you too! once the item is shipped, you will already know what your piece looks like. however, if mistakes are made on my behalf i will certainly stand by my product and do everything i can to assist - while i cannot refund on custom orders, i will remake if necessary.
Additional policies and FAQs
generally a custom creation takes between 8-9 weeks for me to create; however, if you would like it faster i can rush the order for a fee - please convo me for an estimate.
