Sizing: Our REVERSIBLE brimless wildThings caps come in three sizes. Please measure for the best possible fit. If you have questions about sizing, please contact us. We can help. Three sizes means your hat will fit for a long, long time. What a wise (and wonderfully cute) investment!
About the ears: Ears are flexible and moldable—to an extent. They’re fixed with a coated lightweight wire, so gentle play is best. Wear your wildThings cap with the ears for some fabulous, flirty fun or without when you’re feeling a little more somber.
Care: The cap itself is machine washable, but may shrink if you do. if you're concerned about shrinkage, please hand wash in cold water. Stretch, re-shape, and line dry or dry flat. remove the ears (carefully) before laundering. Gently spot clean the ears using a mild detergent. Do NOT machine wash the ears!
About the design: These caps are based on a timeless style called the coif. Worn for hundreds of years, coifs are very comfortable, they keep unruly hair in order on windy days, and they certainly do make a statement! More modern versions of the classic coif brought us the aviator hat and the bombardier cap. Our wildThings caps are a combination of all of these forms… with a little bitta flair, too.
Custom designs & fabrics are available.
Materials: Caps are made from cotton, linen, and cotton-linen blends, depending on the fabrics in the hat you choose. The ears are made from wool or eco-felt, depending on the color.
*** Designed and handmade in Ohio, USA.

how do i know what size to order?
our bonnets come in 6 sizes. our smallest size fits most newborns and our largest size fits most kids ages 4 and up-- and adults! although we have made rough estimates as far as age of the child they'll fit, there is a very large range of head sizes within each age range. this means that the best and most reliable way to size a bonnet for your darlin' guy or gal is to measure their head circumference.
how should i wash my bonnet?
although it's best to wash your bonnet by hand and line dry it (or dry it flat on top of your washer or dryer), you can toss it into the machine with your other wash and it'll do just fine. wash only using COLD WATER, and if you place the hat in the dryer, dry it on low. use a warm, cotton-setting, steam iron to press your bonnet if necessary. we like to dry out hats flat because it saves energy and they don't need to be pressed. they'll have a softened, worn look as opposed to a crisp press, but that's what we (personally) prefer. if you love the crisp press, just run a steam iron over the bonnet when it's slighlty damp or spritz it & press. usually pressing the back of the bonnet and the brim will polish it up nicely. make sure not to hit the little ribbon tag with your iron or it can melt.
