The ManyMonths Summer Hat 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.
- Can be tied under the chin (except the largest size).
- 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 & Beyond. The smallest size fits a baby just a few weeks of age and the biggest size is even suitable for many mums.
New colours: Silver Blue, Red Emperor, Sandshell, Butterfly Plum, Outer Space Blue, Rose Water and the Blue Atoll. Please notice that the colours Butterfly Plum, Outer Space Blue and Atoll Blue are made of stronger fabric, which also gives better UV-protection. In these colours we recommend choosing the next size up, if your child's head is close to the maximum recommendation (see below).
If your child feels the hat to be tight, please take away the adjustable elastic. The hat will soften and expand somewhat in use.
How to choose the size according to head circumference:
Charmer/Explorer 42-46 cm
Adventurer/Conqueror 46-52 cm
Innovator & Beyond 52-55 cm
The Innovator Hats of the lighter fabrics (other colours than those above) fit heads up to about 57 cm.
Material: 100% hemp.
Hemp is a breathable material that feels cool, making it ideal for summer weather. The ManyMonths hats are lightweight and soft, and can thus be used even during midday naps. We warmly recommend the summer hat for use with the MaM Summer Babywearing cover
Why choose a protective hat for your child?
It is common that 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 we have chosen hemp fabric for the 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, so 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 it is cultivation is environmentally friendly and the clothing naturally safe to use.
