Monograms are still going strong! This season saw a huge rise in fashion customization, thanks to made-to-order merch, like the Burberry Prorsum blanket poncho, the embroidered Rag & Bone bomber, and the bespoke Edie Parker box clutch. And now, there's one more piece you can add to the list: personalized beanies.
In a collaboration between It-Brit retailer Whistles and Wool and the Gang (a knitwear brand that prides itself on quality sustainable fashion, handmade with natural, renewable and biodegradable yarns) comes an adorable DIY knitting kit that includes a pre-knitted beanie, a knitting needle, yarn, and step-by-step instructions. It really doesn't get more personal than this.
"We love that this partnership brings Wool and the Gang's maker story to life on the British high street," says Jade Harwood, co-founder and creative director of Wool and the Gang. "Customers can either embroider their initials themselves, use the easy-to follow patterns or follow tutorials on the online Wool School. The beanies are knitted by hand using our super chic Crazy Sexy wool and are a fun, quirky gift for your nearest and dearest, or just for you!"
The kits are available for $95 ($67 today—thanks Cyber Monday) on whistles.com. Happy knitting!
