The ManyMonths Summer Hat with a Bow protects the child's delicate skin from harmful rays of the sun– and it looks great too!
In the design, we’ve taken into account that not only the head, but also the forehead, ears, and neck need protection, and thus the ManyMonths hat has a much larger brim than other common summer hats.
Our summer hats have many familiar ManyMonths features allowing for many months, even years of use:
Head circumference is adjustable for a perfect fit. This model adjusts with a bow.
Can be tied under the chin. (the two smallest sizes)
The brims have good-looking, durable bindings and the seams have been made flat.
Every hat has a beautiful coconut button in front, which enables the front brim to be lifted up when needed (for example during a picnic in the meadow)
Combo-sizes allow for an even longer time of use: Charmer/Explorer, Adventurer/Conqueror, and Innovator & Enthusiast. The smallest size fits a baby just a few weeks of age and the biggest size LIONHEART is suitable for many mums.
Charmer/Explorer ca 42-46 cm
Adventurer/Conqueror ca 46-52 cm
Innovator & Enthusiast ca 52-55 cm
Lionheart & Beyond ca 55-59 cm
ATTN: If your child has thick hair, prefers a looser fit, or has a head circumference close to the maximum, rather choose the next size.
Please note that the brim width also gets bigger.
The colour of undyed, natural hemp depends on where it has grown as it retains the colour of the fibre. Every batch of fabric will have a somewhat different shade. It can be lighter or darker - from almost white to yellowish, light beige, or slightly greyish.
The hat will soften and expand somewhat in use. Use gentle wash with liquid detergent without bleaching agents. When planning to wear the hat in a chlorinated pool or salty ocean water we recommend the Natural colour.
Material: 55% hemp/45% organic cotton

Why choose a protective hat for your child?
Commonly, children receive 50% of the entire life-term UV dose during childhood. The child's sensitive skin burns more easily than the skin of adults. Depending on skin type, already 5-40 minutes in the sun can cause sunburns. Our skin never forgets the childhood burns and it may later even lead to skin cancer. The children themselves cannot ensure adequate protection, it has to be the adult’s task.
Why hemp fabric for a summer hat?
The hemp fibre is porous, which means that it breathes very well and feels wonderfully cool in the summer. Still, it is considered to be about ten times stronger than cotton and thus tends to be much more durable in use. Hemp clothing softens perfectly in use and these garments quickly become favourites we don’t want to take off at all. The hemp crop doesn’t need herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, or even fertilizers to grow, so its cultivation is environmentally friendly and the clothing naturally safe to use.

Why choose a wide-brimmed hat?
All ManyMonths summer hats have particularly wide brims, which is essential for sun protection. Wearing a hat provides instant shade, which will further increase the total sun protection. A sun hat with a wide brim provides sun protection for the nose, back of the neck, cheek, and chin. Our children's eyes are also vulnerable. A summer hat with a wide brim helps to shield the eyes as well - we recommend to combine with Ki ET LA sunglasses to get the best combo. The ManyMonths Travel and Floppy Hats have the widest brims and they are also made of double fabric.
ATTN: Keep the brim unattached to the front button for best protection during sun exposure.
