freeform knit hat, Good Hair Day Tam Beret, blue teal, bad hair day fix, ski hat, hair fall, dred locks, unique hat, RTS, wool silk

Sorry, this item has sold.

Laura dreamed up this hat one day when she was hating her hair and wishing she had something fun to put over it. This is perfect! It an be worn any number of ways depending on your mood, or sense of adventure--or the wind? We get ferocious wind here :) Wear it up, down, braided or like long bangs. You are only limited by your whims!

This is a special edition of this hat. About half of the yarn used was spun by Laura, one from a Loop Batt and another yarn from rolags by ZebIsis. The "eyelash yarn" effect at the top is actually a double loop stitch-and they have all been knotted just to make it all extra secure.

Laura: "As a freeformer, I do not work with patterns. I make everything up as I go. This means *every* hat is unique!"

One size. Our mannequin has a tiny head and Laura has a large head. It fits us both. :D

Frequently Asked Questions

Wholesale availability

We have a handful of wholesale accounts, but at this time, we are not looking for more. We thank you for your interest :)

Custom and personalized orders

The ability to customize, personalize orders is the number one reason we work mostly on a "made to order" basis. We want you to have everything just as you need/want it! We understand that this makes our shipping times slower, but we hope you will agree that we are worth the wait :)

Does your roving come in one, continuous piece?

Not always. Let us know if this is important, and we will make it happen.

Why is the shipping so high? Can you fix it?

It's a long, convoluted answer having to do with the fact that we offer variations of weight in our batts and other items. We pay the extra shipping on larger batts, but we have no way of setting the shipping lower on the sample sizes, so we have to meet somewhere in the middle --which is often WAY too much if you are ordering a quantity of sample batts.

And yes. We can fix it, just message us. Or.. check out and leave us a note reminding us to refund your excess shipping. Either way, we understand. We hate overpaying for shipping too :D

You forgot my felting needles. Will you send them?

If we forgot them, of course we will :D

But first... take a peek on the side of the foam. 99.99% of the time, they are there, just overlooked.

Why does it take 10-14 days to mail a batt?

We dye a very large proportion (60-75%!!) of our wool, Firestar and Silk. We're really proud of the number of colors we offer-- and we only have plans to do more. We do this because it the work we love to do, it's one of many things that we think make our work worthwhile, special. Additionally, we do not want our batts sitting in inventory, compacting from lack of use. And then... what if you want to customize the batt? We do that too :D

We make our batts to order because we make them for you— and we make a LOT of them, so there is usually a line when you order as well. We think they are worth the wait and hope that you will too. Naturally, if you need something faster, let us know. We work magic, that's what we do :D
