This week's GIVEAWAY!

It is a 100% bamboo, hand knit baby beanie. The bamboo yarn comes from a company that:

…works with several job creation programs in South Africa by giving artisans the confidence and the means to support themselves and their families in an otherwise economically depressed region. The empowerment groups have grown to include over 200 villagers, mostly female members of the Xhosa tribe, who live in Cape Town, the Eastern Cape region and Johannesburg. Participants are responsible for making mohair, bamboo and organic cotton yarns, accessories and home goods. Many of the women depend on their work for their survival. With the help of experienced program directors, the women are able to work in stable environments where they can earn a fair wage, learn a new skill and enjoy their jobs.

So, the beanie is made from both ethically and ecologically conscious materials. As an added bonus, bamboo is super soft (as soft as silk), hypoallergenic and possesses both antimicrobial and UV protecting qualities.
It is sized to fit a baby 0 to 3 months!
