Hat Sea A´hoy, yellow and gray
Sea A´hoy! Inspired by the sea, a wool hat from Pöytyä's field landscape.
Hats are Finnish local production and handicrafts at their best, hand-knitted with the love of Myssymumma from the table.
The processing of wool preserves its natural fat, lanolin, which makes wool water and dirt repellent.
One size. The hat stretches and shapes to fit the wearer's head.
If you wish, you will receive a gift box that can be folded according to the hat. Mention your wishes in the Special Instructions for the Seller section of the checkout.
Material: 100% Finnish sheep organic wool.
Manufacture: Pöytyä, Finland
Why is this a more ecological and ethical option?
Wool is one of the few textile fibers that we in Finland can produce locally. By utilizing fine Finnish wool, handicraft products made entirely of local production and organic quality can be produced.
At present, Finnish wool is an underused material, of which about 70% is disposed of as waste. The hat farm does long-term work to raise Finnish wool back to its value and has raised to a new level of the price per kilogram of wool.
The hat farm collaborates with numerous organic farms and provides additional income and meaningful work for 80 retired hat product knitters.
The Finnish sheep and the merino sheep are the only two sheep breeds in the world whose wool fibers turn inwards. Due to its structure, the wool of Finnish sheep is especially soft.
