believe it or not...

I'm so very far beyond excited to share some news with you!...The meticulously curated Portland Art Museum Gift Shop is now carrying a select few extra fabulous Hoo Hats on their exclusive shelves.  Yes, it is true.  I would not have believed it had I not seen it for myself tonight when I crept in, camera in hand, & sneaked around like some kind of weirdo shooting photos of the Children's section.  But I am not above that.  Oh, no.  Anything to secure a shot of a bevy of my beautiful Hoo Hats so nobly ensconced.  Plus, I wasn't sure if you'd believe me:

So, next time you're at the PAM checking out some Lee Kelly craziness or Thomas Moran's amazing landscapes, pop into the shop & say "hello" to my Hoos!

hoo hats come to london town!

Thanks to Julianne for sending along these awesome, puddle-stomping pics!

newborn hoos for a brand new year!

I don't know about you, but it seems like everyone I know either just had a baby or is pregnant or is trying to get pregnant or is thinking about getting pregnant someday soon (I hope it's not contagious!).  And so I'm pleased to introduce a brand new size of Hoo Hats make expressly for the newborn Hoo Head.

Here are a few that just listed on Etsy today:

These hats are all made from the softest wool I can find, typically cashmere (although I've been known to use a little angora, merino, rabbit hair & lambswool here & there so long as it's extra cozy), so they're extremely light, soft & flexible.  They don't have any straps, but still sport the cozy ear flaps to keep your little newbie warm during those cold winter outings.  They fit babies with head circumferences in the 12-15" range (please email if you're interested in purchasing a Premie-sized Hoo Hat -I have a few available).

The Newborn Hoo Hat makes a perfect shower gift, not just during the winter months, but all the year round.
