Our Pixie Gnome Hats make the perfect addition to any wardrobe. With patterns to suit boys and girls, and a timeless design that's decidedly gender-neutral, even Dad will love this hat!
Summer versions are two layers of cotton with an amazing brim to protect from UV rays. Winter ones are lined with Polartec® fleece and designed for full ear coverage-- perfect for any winter weather, no matter how nasty Mother Nature might get! Wind, sleet, cold, snow... it's all easy if your little is wearing a Pixie Gnome hat. Well, maybe not EASY... but they certainly will stay warm and dry. Brims are optional on our winter Pixies.
Like all of our other hats, they are reversible, machine washable, handmade in USA (in Ohio, to be exact), and feature our trademark adjustable snap strap that allows for a flexible and custom fit.
Our Pixie Gnome Hats come in 5 sizes, and are designed to last a good, long time. Our kid size, for example, will last from about 14 months to about 14 years! REALLY! Even mom and dad can get in on the fun, since we also offer these hats in a grown-up size!
We've found that kids love these hats! They're comfortable and our brimmed summer version provides excellent sun protection, but best of all they have LOTS of imaginative play value. Similar to our wildThings ear hats in that they're as much fun as they are function, Pixie Gnome hats are a hat kids WANT to wear. So come on, join us. Join in the fun! And make sure to tag us in your photos!
Sizing bonnets come in 6 sizes. our smallest size fits most newborns and our largest size fits most kids ages 4 and up-- and adults! although we have made rough estimates as far as age of the child they'll fit, there is a very large range of head sizes within each age range. this means that the best and most reliable way to size a bonnet for your darlin' guy or gal is to measure their head circumference.
newbies: 14" - 16" (approx preemie/nb - 3 mos)
babies: 16" - 18” (approx 3 mos - 14 mos)
kids: 18" - 21” (approx 14 mos - 4 years)
grown-ups: 21.5" + (approx 14yrs +)
Wash & Care although it's best to wash your bonnet by hand and line dry it (or dry it flat on top of your washer or dryer), you can toss it into the machine with your other wash and it'll do just fine. wash only using COLD WATER, and if you place the hat in the dryer, dry it on low. use a warm, cotton-setting, steam iron to press your bonnet if necessary. we like to dry out hats flat because it saves energy and they don't need to be pressed. they'll have a softened, worn look as opposed to a crisp press, but that's what we (personally) prefer. if you love the crisp press, just run a steam iron over the bonnet when it's slighlty damp or spritz it & press. usually pressing the back of the bonnet and the brim will polish it up nicely. make sure not to hit the little ribbon tag with your iron or it can melt.
