Erica Watson, co-founder of Green+Simple, shares the cutest children’s bobble hats and beanies to help keep little ones warm this winter.
Stripes, spots, pom poms and tassels. They come in all shapes and sizes to cater to all tastes (and head sizes). And it’s often the lovingly-knitted number that’s been handed down from sibling to sibling that is the resounding favourite. Which is why you’ll love these ethically sourced, handmade beanies made from all natural fibres and designed with kids in mind.

From babies to toddlers and beyond, they have the cutest range of hats and beanies as well as adorable little bags, purses, necklaces and more. Their baby beanies – like this dear number – are unisex and ethically made using organic cotton. We also love their t-shirts and accessories for mums too.

Striped Tassel Ear Hat, Cabbages & Kings
This cute number from Cabbages and Kings has it all – stripes, a cute yellow pom-pom and just enough coverage of the ears to keep little ones warm, but not too much to annoy them. Made from 100% alpaca, which is known to be hypoallergenic, each hat has been hand knitted by artisans in Bolivia.
Merino Kids Bobble Hat, Polarn O. Pyret
This merino wool hat from Polarn O. Pyret is fleeced lining for extra cosiness while the long ear covers keep little ears warm and wind free. The clever thermal materials retain body heat and wicks away moisture from the skin keeping little one happy, warm and dry.
