I loved my beanie so much I had to make a beanie for our kids! The fabric is stretchy so this beanie will grow with your child throughout their childhood! Our beanies are 100% baby alpaca making them oh so soft - reversible too! Alpaca is considerably warmer than sheep's wool, thus is woven in a lightweight style. Be assured that our beanies are warm even though they are not heavy. Your head will thank you on the coldest of days!
