Wool and the Gang has arrived at our little Canadian corner of the yarn store world!
I’m not sure about you guys, but I’ve loved working with Wool and the Gang Crazy Sexy Wool for the past few years – its a great market prep yarn (super bulky forever!), and the yardage is very generous for the price!
There are a so many things I love about the Wool and the Gang company – but how they approach sustainability is my favorite… They ethically source their wool – its 100% mulesing-free. 63% of their yarn is biodegradable, 47% is vegan and 32% is recycled or upcycled.
Step 1: Thread the pom pom ties through your darning needle.
Step 2: Insert the darning needle through the decrease stitches at the top of your hat
Step 3: Thread the other pom pom tie through your darning needle and insert equal distance from your other tie.
Step 4: Inside out your hat and tie a knot with a bow.
Step 5: Inside your hat back the right way.
Step 6: Voila! You’re all done!
Kimberly from CoziKnots has made this amazing video for us to show you how we suggest attaching your faux fur pom pom to your hat. You can easily detach your pom pom to either switch up the color of your pom pom, wear it without a pom pom, or to wash your hat!
We’ve had some questions lately about why we use string to create our faux fur pom poms… Or more why don’t we use snaps. We have a few reasons and I think this will help you know why we continue to stick to our original strings.
There are a few reasons as to why we don’t use snaps or other “interchangeable, or detachable” designs. I say this in quotations because our pom poms are made with string and are also interchangeable and detachable as well. (You can see this blog post about how to achieve it.)
