Quality knitted Caithness hats
On the North coast of Scotland, in the town of Thurso, you will find Caithness flag pompom hats at the Coo’s Tail Gallery. A beautiful gallery and gift shop run by local lass Barbara Cowan. Since 2014 Barbara has stocked a selection of our Wonky Woolies branded products. From bobble hats and scarves to headbands and beanies, our knitted accessories have sold well to both locals and tourists visiting the region.
Creating a custom pompom hat
Barbara wanted to create a bespoke design to celebrate Caithness and sell in her shop. We started by keeping the flag design as true to the original as possible, aligning it off centre to accentuate the pattern. Then we looked at different colours of pompoms however, it was difficult to pick a favourite. As a small batch manufacturer our minimum order for colour changes is only 5 hats therefore, Barbara was able to order some of each colour and offer her customers a choice.
Bespoke woven labels
Once the hat was finalised Barbara chose to include a bespoke woven label to give the product a personal touch. We developed the design, had the label sampled and once approved by Barbara, placed the order for the full batch. Our UK partner GB Labels offer a minimum order of 500 pieces and turn orders around quickly. We have worked with GB Labels since 2012 and we always receive an excellent product.
