      There are of course some good guides out there and we recommend that everyone should begin with some reading and research as they say proper planning prevents poor performance and we all want to give a hat which is wearable not laughable.

      Remember last winter? Yes it was cold and it was pretty long, lots of hats were needed especially for our precious children, so go on and make sure you give a gift that keeps on giving and keeps them as warm as your heart.
