All Vegan color options are marked with **. Due to the use of cochineal, especially in the pinks and purple, it makes a percentage of the colors non-Vegan.

Botanical Information

When dried in a machine there can be a one time 10-15% shrinkage in length. Kits sometimes have yarn left over so that you have the option to lengthen the blanket if you prefer. To avoid shrinkage wash in cool water, gentle soap, on the gentle cycle setting, in a lingerie bag and lay out to dry.

These hat kits allow for multi-color knitting without having to buy full hanks of every single color. This makes it a great value. It would make a perfect gift for that special mother to be & baby or given as a kit to a creative knitter in your life.

Knitting Needles are optional. The needle sizes used is #10 for the average knitter. See the Bamboo Knitting Needles page. The Crystal palace bamboo needles work like a dream with the organic cotton yarn.
