Character Children’s Winter Hats

Getting children to wear winter hats is not always easy and one of the best ways to ensure that children’s winter hats are actually worn is to find a hat that they will love.  Many parents opt for character hats.  Children have their own favourite characters and will quite happily wear them if they are funny or quirky.  These hats are not expensive and simple knitted hats in the design of a dog, tiger, bear or panda are particularly popular with younger children.  These are often made from acrylic, which is a synthetic fibre commonly used in knitted garments.

Acrylic is lightweight and soft and feels like real wool.  It is used for knitted garments because it is cheaper to produce, is resistant to exposure to the sun, and is unlikely to be damaged by moths or chemicals. It is machine washable, making it the ideal fabric for garments for children, which need to be frequently washed.

Trapper hats can also be purchased from the children’s winter hats range.  Adorned with a quirky character, the top of the hat resembles the head of an animal.  Animals in the range include a crocodile, moose, bear, cat and dog, and many others.  These are made from polyester and are machine washable but they are not waterproof so are not ideal for wearing when the weather takes a turn for the worse.  However, they are warm and cosy and children will love them.
