I create cozy, modern knit accessories all hand-knit with ethically-sourced yarn to keep you warm on all your everyday adventures.

I create cozy, modern knit accessories all hand-knit with ethically-sourced yarn. My knits are inspired by everyday adventures, whether it be a winter walk with a warm beverage in hand or snowshoeing through a state park. They make the perfect addition to your après ski outfit or a warm, cute accessory for your winter errands. Woolly Bear Knits hats feature simple, minimalist textures in colors that will add the perfect pop to your winter wardrobe.

I believe there’s no bad weather, only bad clothing, and I want to help keep you warm on any adventures that come your way!

Everything is knit by hand with highest quality, ethically sourced natural fibers like Peruvian or merino wool. The wool I use is very soft and warm without being scratchy. Wool and merino wool are body odor-resistant, moisture-wicking, and breathable. Wearing natural fibers means you’ll stay warm but not overheat, and you’ll be left with minimal hat hair. When properly cared for, wool will last a lifetime, but if you are ready to part with your hat, you can rest assured knowing that wool is biodegradable! As an animal lover, I'm committed to sourcing yarn from companies that do not practice mulesing on their sheep. Hats include your choice of pom pom, all hand made with cruelty-free faux fur fabric.

All packages are shipped in compostable mailers, with minimal packaging to reduce waste, and include a reusable muslin bag to store your hat or cowl in the off-season. Included in hat purchases is a sample of my favorite wool wash for you to wash your hat at the end of the season.

The name "Woolly Bear Knits" comes from my love of finding woolly bear caterpillars in the fall (my favorite season). They literally freeze solid in the winter, and the bands of color on their bodies are said to predict the harshness of winter. These fuzzy little creatures make the perfect mascot for my knits.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Occasionally I can accept custom orders, depending on supply availability and capacity. Please send a message with what you're looking for and I'll respond back to let you know if it's possible. Typically I cannot accept custom orders during my busiest time in November through mid-December. If I can accept a custom request, you'll be sent a listing to purchase, and work will begin once the item has been paid for. I will provide an estimated turnaround time at the time of your order, typically 2-4 weeks.

There are no returns on custom orders, and discount codes do not apply.

Care instructions

- Hand wash cold in gentle detergent, reshape and air dry flat.
- Do not put in washing machine or dryer, as this will cause your wool item to felt.
- Remove pom pom before washing for best results (pom pom can be removed by untying from inside).
- Fluff pom pom to refresh by gently brushing with comb or cool heat from a hair dryer.

All wool will stretch over time. If you feel your hat has gotten too stretched out, follow the instructions above to wash it, then reshape it to desired shape, and allow to dry. This should reshape it to its original size.

Sizing details

Detailed measurements of each item are provided in each listing description. Hats are made with chunky merino wool or wool. Hats will be fitted on medium/larger heads with taller foreheads, or slouchy/tall on smaller/medium heads with short foreheads. If you are looking for a very small or very large size, message me and I might be able to customize the fit for you.

If you have any questions about sizing or fit, feel free to send me a message! All listings include a video of the fit on my own head (which is larger, with a tall forehead).

All wool will stretch over time. If your hat feels small (especially at the brim) when it arrives, know that it will stretch over time (after a few wears) and mold to your head shape.

Returns and Exchanges

Due to USPS delays in 2020-2022 along with hygiene factors related to COVID-19, returns are not accepted. Please don't hesitate to message me with any questions or concerns about your order and we'll work together to make it right.

If you have any questions about sizing, fit, or materials before your order, I'm more than happy to send you more info, pics or even a video. I typically respond to messages within an hour or two, so don't hesitate to reach out if you're unsure before you order!

I need a new pom pom!

Lost your pom pom or maybe your pet ate it? Or maybe you just want an additional color so you can switch it out? Send me a message to order a new one.
