About the hoods

Fairy Tale Fiber creations are handmade in the Pacific Northwest using sustainable materials. We use 100% wool selvage, which is a “waste” byproduct from the textile industry. This wool is so soft you could mistake it for cotton!

The Fairy Tale hoods are an exceptionally versatile design. You may choose to wear it like a hat and scarf to keep you dry in the pouring rain. If you get too warm, it flips down like a hood. You may find it handy as a satchel (just tie the scarflette and sling it over your shoulder) to forage for treasure while romping through the urban forest... These hats will become a furry tagalong you can't bear to be without.

Care instructions for Fairy Tale hoods: please hand wash in cold water; towel off excess water, then wear as it dries to make a perfect fit (if absolutely necessary lay flat to dry). Each Fairy Tale Fiber creation has its own personality. Love your hat and it will love you. Tease it and coax it in to the perfect shape, then wear it in the rain to set its shape to your head!

Custom Orders: if you love our hoods but don't see the perfect color or size for you, check out our Etsy alchemy page: We happily do custom work. We require a 50% deposit for custom orders, paid after we have decided on materials and size. Custom orders may take as long as two weeks. Any hood that says OOAK or one of a kind can not be reproduced in a custom order.

Contact: Etsy convo is the quickest way to reach me but if you are not comfortable or familiar with convo’s you may email me at I also have a Flickr group: Come and post pictures of your hoods and yourselves - Tigerlily and I would love to see you!
