Winter can be a dreary time of year for many people who live in temperate climates. It is hard to get motivated when you're cold. Industrialized outerwear, made by machines, are convenient and easy to find in stores, but many of them offer little more protection from the cold than a fall jacket.

Handmade winter outerwear is more durable and efficient than those made from cheap automated machines. More importantly, they are crafted with the attention to detail that is often lacking in other brands. Handmade infant hats, mittens and booties offer customers protection from the cold and strong, durable fibers.

Some Classic Fiber Choices for Winter Outerwear

1. Lorna Lace's Solemate yarn: Specifically designed for babies booties, Solemate yarn is made of 55% soft Superwash Merino wool, 15% nylon and 30% Outlast viscose, a fiber specifically designed to respond to your baby's skin temperature. If it gets too hot, microbeads whisk heat away, too cold and heat is stored in the fiber. This technology has been utilized by NASA and NASCAR drivers to combat harsh temperatures on the job.

2. Lorna's Laces Angel yarn: Made from 70% Angora and 30% Lambswool, angel yarn is as soft as it sounds, plus it has the advantages of wool; it is soft, sturdy and takes color well. In addition, it keeps moisture at bay. Of all the different varieties, this yarn looks soft, fluffy and handmade.

3. Sportmate: The cousin to Solemate designed for the person who is naturally active. Made from 70% Superwash Merino and 30% Outlast fiber, the viscose in this keeps infant hats & booties from getting too hot next to baby's skin. The wool in this fiber is odor resistant and bacteria resistant.

4. 100% Cashmere: Lighweight and warm, cashmere is produced from a specific variety of goat. Its reputation speaks for itself, as it has always been associated with luxury and elegance. Cashmere is sought after for its softness and versatility.


Regardless of the type of handmade infant hats & booties you choose, you are certain to find a beautiful quality that cannot be replicated anywhere else. Now you can take your kids or grandkids with you while you run those necessary winter errands. Best of all, you can show the little ones off and they will be comfortable and cozy the whole trip. None of the fabrics are known to irritate sensitive skin, so you don't have to worry about your little one's skin either. Go out on the town and enjoy your winter community!
