THE STORY BEHIND THIS SH*T:
Our original and unique hats are designed individually by our CKO (Chief Knitting Officer) and are then brought to life by a group of talented women in Lima, Peru. Many of these women are amazing mothers who can WFH (work from home) while taking care of their children. Since knitting is a mobile activity which can be done just about anywhere, these women benefit from being able to incorporate flexibility into their work. We supply them with the most delicious hand-dyed merino wool that is also made in Lima- it is so soft, many of our customers confuse it with cashmere.
You can feel pretty good about your hat, because with your purchase you help support our Give-A-Sh*t program. We donate Give-A-Sh*t Knit Kits to young adults undergoing cancer treatment all over the country. We've most notably partnered with Dana Farber's Young Adult Program here in Boston and are working to expand the program! We are also partnered with Lurie Cancer Center, Memorial Sloane Kettering, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital-Stanford, University of Calgary Department of Oncology, and AYA at USC Norris.
