Fit + Care
Q: My head is ____ [big, small, shaped like a carrot, etc.] My shoulders are ___ [broad, narrow, I’m not sure.] How do I know what product will fit me best?
A: Excellent question! All of our hats, wraps, and ponchos are one size. To help you find your best beanie fit, we created a Compare Our Beanies tool to help you see how each of our beanies fit. Want more specifics on sizing? Check out our fit guide.
Q: I wear my sh*t a lot - how do I clean it?
A: This comes up a lot, and to be honest, we're flattered because it means our customers really love to wear their sh*t...a LOT. To give your beanie some TLC, we recommend our beanie care kit to help keep your beanie looking fresh. For information on caring for other products, visit the Product Care Page.
Q: What are the products made of?
A: All of our products are made of sustainably sourced materials. We've included specifics on each product page, but here's a quick overview:
- Our hats, mittens, headbands, neckies, and Yarn Pom Poms are kettle-dyed and made from 100% Peruvian merino wool.
- Our Faux Fur Pom Poms are made of exactly that...faux fur! We refer to these as “fom-foms”...we think we’re very clever.
- Our wraps and ponchos are made from 100% Peruvian baby alpaca wool. Fun fact - this does not mean actual baby alpaca. It refers to the softest wool on adult alpaca.
- Our earrings are made of rafia, which is basically really durable, natural straw
Q: Where are the products made?
A: All of our products are sourced and made in Lima, Peru. You may not know this, but Peru is known for having the best yarn; they source it sustainably and responsibly, which is really important to us. Also, knitting is a tradition that has been passed down for generations.
Q: Who makes the products?
A: We employ over 170 women in Lima (who are all expert knitters) to make our all of our products - beanies, neckies, wraps, you name it. But this is more than just a job for these women. Because of companies like STIK, these women can be working moms - they knit from home, so they can take care of their children while earning an income to support their families.
