Make Give Live Merino Beanies
New season's merino beanies and bonnets have arrived from Make Give Live.
Please note our sizing info & recommendations - the coco and bobbie beanies are both labelled as 4 - 8 years, though we find they are a slightly smaller fit. The coco is good from about 18 months to approx 5 years, its is unlikely to fit an 8 year old unless they have a smaller head. The bobbie is slightly larger fitting though we think it is still suitable for a child younger than labelled. Our recommendation is 3 - 6 years. Both are made from a soft merino so will give and mould to their owner's head.
Make Give Live is a NZ social enterprise that has the purpose of easing isolation and improving mental health and wellbeing in communities. Groups of all ages and backgrounds get together every week or fortnight at a local cafe or community hub to enjoy each others company and the therapy of knitting with purpose. They handcraft these beautiful products and for each one sold they give e one to a Kiwi in need. For more info go to https://makegivelive.co.nz. Their beanies are sort after around the world after baby Archie was gifted a coco bear beanie and the photograph of him went global at new year, raising awareness & profile of the great work this social enterprise achieves.
