About

Creativity or bust!

When my daughter was still in diapers and I was knitting her little longies (wool diaper covers) I was obsessed with everything wool! Once, when I was admiring another knitter's work, she had made a cute hat to go with her longies. I contacted her and asked her if she would make one for me in adult size - I would pay of course. This sweet woman (her shop was called Stormopzolder, which means 'Storm in the Attic') is based in the Netherlands and her response to me was that I should just make the hat myself. I had not even considered that! She gave me the basics of how she made the newsboy style hat and from there I experimented until I developed a 2 size pattern. I was making hats for friends and family when someone suggested I sell them online and that's how I found Etsy - way in the early days! I love the premise of Etsy and the unique marketplace that it is and felt at home straight away. I've since decided to include jewelry making and other pretty crafted items, like waldorf inspired needle felted dolls - who knows what I'll come up with next... All in all, Etsy allows me to fan my creative urges, and I am a much happier person for it!

::About the hats::

Only the finest and softest 100% Merino wool roving (un-spun wool) is used to produce truly elegant yet funky hats. Every hat is completely unique and available in a great selection of solid as well as variegated colors.

The Newsboy hat is exclusively designed and hand knit by Alexandra Menna. The Flapper (cloche) hat is also Alexandra’s design and is an answer to those who live in warmer climates. The inspiration for the original newsboy hat came from a very talented dutch knitter named Yvon, whose work can be seen here:
www. stormopzolder .nl

::Sizing for The Newsboy and The Flapper::

We offer 2 basic sizes to fit most adults (and children).

Size 1 will fit most people with head circumference approx. 20-22 inches (51-56cm).

Size 2 will fit most people with head circumference approx. 22-24 inches (56-61cm).

To measure, place a flexible tape measure comfortably around your head, slightly above your ears. Keep in mind that the nature of wool is to give a little with wear, so what might fit snugly at first will likely stretch to fit perfectly.

Most people can be accommodated with our 2 sizes but if you need a larger or smaller hat please contact us and we can arrange for a custom fit.

Allow 1-2 weeks for production and delivery of custom orders. If you have any questions about fit please contact us anytime.
