Lobster Animal hat in our very own New Zealand wool. It is also called crayfish. It is fleece lined so it won’t be prickly and is extra warm! Great for when your going fishing or just a bit of fun. Can be tied up around your chin for when your out in the wind.Available in bright orange or bright red.
Wool is a wonderful product to wear as it breathes and stays warm even if it becomes damp. Great for the outdoors. Our animal hats are imported from Nepal and hand knitted by Nepalese woman. In buying this product you are supporting the Nepalese in this cottage industry and at this price you actually would be hard pushed to knit it for the same cost in terms of wool expense and labour. It is wonderful to think the wool has gone as a raw product to Nepal , been hand knitted by people way less fortunate than New Zealanders and sent back as a finished product. I feel good about this product and love that it helps those with less than us!!
New Zealand wool is so great. You can know the wool comes from sheep that run freely and are never penned or caged. We have a lot of space in New Zealand and our climate does not get too cold so our sheep are outdoors in both the summer and winter.
Tips for washing your animal hat
It is easy to wash. Just pop it in the washing machine and use a wool detergent and the wool cycle and hey presto done. NEVER wash in hot water as it will shrink.
