Reasons Why You Should Buy Handmade

So you're contemplating spending $75 on a merino wool toque when you can go buy one at the Dollar Store for five bucks. Here are just a few reasons why you should choose handmade. 

1. You are supporting a dream.  This is not my job ~ this is my hobby. When you buy from me, you're buying a piece of my time. Every stitch has a story. When you're wearing one of my pieces, you can imagine the story behind the toque.  

2. I use only high quality material.  It is not mass produced in some factory.  So if you want something itchy, fast fashion, et cetera, of course, buy the $5 toque. If you want something that will last you for years with the right care, invest in that handmade toque. 

3. Merino wool is super soft, odour resistant, antimicrobial, temperature regulating, moisture wicking, sustainable and biodegradable ~ just to name a few of its qualities.
