Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Occasionally I can accept custom orders, depending on supply availability and capacity. Please send a message with what you're looking for and I'll respond back to let you know if it's possible. If I can accept a custom request, you'll be sent a listing to purchase, and work will begin once the item has been paid for. I will provide an estimated turnaround time at the time of your order, typically 2-4 weeks.

There are no returns on custom orders, and discount codes do not apply.

In fall/winter 2021, custom orders will be accepted during a designated timeframe. Follow me on Instagram @woollybear_knits or join my email list for specific updates on custom order timelines.

Care instructions

- Hand wash cold in gentle detergent, reshape and air dry flat.
- Do not put in washing machine or dryer, as this will cause your wool item to felt.
- Remove pom pom before washing for best results (pom pom can be removed by untying from inside).
- Fluff pom pom to refresh by gently brushing with comb or cool heat from a hair dryer.

All wool will stretch over time. If you feel your hat has gotten too stretched out, follow the instructions above to wash it, then reshape it to desired shape, and allow to dry. This should reshape it to its original size.

Sizing details

Detailed measurements of each item are provided in each listing description. Hats are made with chunky merino wool or wool. Hats will be fitted on medium/larger heads with taller foreheads, or slouchy/tall on smaller/medium heads with short foreheads.

If you have any questions about sizing or fit, feel free to send me a message! All listings include a video of the fit on my own head (which is larger, with a tall forehead).

All wool will stretch over time. If your hat feels small (especially at the brim) when it arrives, know that it will stretch over time (after a few wears) and mold to your head shape.

Returns and Exchanges

Returns are accepted if your item is not to your liking. Per my return policy, contact me within 5 days of delivery to initiate a return, and item must be shipped back within 7 days of delivery at customer's expense. Please keep your tracking number for the return. Item must be in original condition.

Refund will be processed within 24 hours of receipt of return. Refund will be subject to a restocking fee if the customer originally received free shipping (restocking fee will be the cost Woolly Bear Knits paid for "free" shipping to you originally, typically $3-5), which will be deducted from the refund.

I need a new pom pom!

Lost your pom pom or maybe your pet ate it? Or maybe you just want an additional color so you can switch it out? Send me a message to order a new one.
