I searched everywhere for a hat that didn’t have silly ears on the top and would stay on my daughter’s head. Somewhere on the Internet I came across the small dutch label Benk. I love unique finds and I love how tasteful Benk’s beautifully, handknitted baby hats, mittens and baby clothes are. Each hat is made from pure delicate 100% merino wool. The merino garments are light weight, breath well and are non-irritant to the skin.

After seeing some images on the site, I immediately contacted Angelique the owner and asked her what colors her hats came in. She explained to me she could do almost any color. I had her send me pictures of two different pinks and a chocolate brown. She was responsive and easy to work with. When I got my hat, I couldn’t believe how beautiful and well made it was.

I would recommend the FAE or the KEET hat for babies 0 – 6 months. It won’t slip off and it’s easy to get on fussy babies. There are many other styles to choose from for older babies and toddlers.

To order your Benk hat, contact Angelique here. Benk is offering FREE shipping for all customers.
