Us mothers may remember bringing our newborns home from the hospital, in step to the tune of Grandma (or Great-Grandma) telling us to always keep the baby’s head covered! Well, I agreed with that philosophy (except in the summer when it was sweltering outside). To that end, knit hats are a must! They offer warmth, comfort, style, and the knowledge that nothing harmful goes into their production…no chemicals or agents that can be absorbed into a fragile newborn’s delicate skin. Elaine’s product offering includes: baby hats, beanies, ruffle hats, stocking caps, and pom-pom hats, for ages birth – 2 years. She chooses bright, vibrant yarns, making her products stand out from the traditional baby blue and baby pink hues. They are all hand-knit from tweed, acrylic, or 80% acrylic / 20% wool blends, and are available in several color / stripe combinations. These are a perfect addition to any baby offering, appealing to shoppers for new baby gifts, baby showers, or baby’s birthday. Register online as a wholesale buyer, and receive free access to Elaine’s wholesale line sheet.
