Polar Fleece Winter Gnome Hat  

This gnome hat is handmade from recycled polarfleece to both provide warmth and a since of adventure.  As a child I was fascinated by the book "GNOMES" by Wil Huygen with wonderful illustrations by Rien Poortvliet.  This hat was inspired by those countless hours of reading about the fantasy life of gnomes. It looks like their ears got very cold so I added ear flaps to my hat to keep you warmer. The top will flop over as it is but it can be stuffed to stand straight up if so desired.  Their hats looked cold in the winter so I added double layer fleece ear flaps for extra warmth.  A great costume hat!
Fits most folks ages 4-99+

Fits children age 4 to adults 99+ years.

What Happy Customers Have to Say:

Hi Mr. Mouse Works,
I just wanted to thank you and your staff of little critters for the gnome hat
I recently ordered.  It was a gift for my fiancé, as our zany canine companion 
thoroughly chewed up every bit of his last hat.....I couldn't wait until the Christmas
day to surprise him with it, so I gave it to him upon arrival (promptly shipped!)
and it has not since left his head!
Thanks again to you,
Who works so hard with his crew,
To bestow smiles upon lips,
By adorning heads with warm knits.


I just wanted to leave you some feedback.  I bought a gnome hat from you and I gotta say that it is fantastic.  I live in Alaska and have gone out in our -40 degree weather with full gear on (including your gnome hat and Carhart's warmest coat) and my head is the only thing that has stayed warm.  Thanks!

About the fleece

Most of my fleece is made by Malden Mills here in the USA.  It is the best fleece available that does not pill or degrade like cheaper imported fabrics.  You can learn more by visiting Polartec®

Technical Highlights

Provides warmth without the weight and bulk of traditional insulating fabrics

Highly breathable to provide comfort in all activities; does not restrict the movement of moisture vapor

Dries quickly to minimize heat loss

Durable; will outlast other imported fleece fabrics. It does not pill up like the cheep imitations.  Plus it is made in the USA!

Machine washable.  Please turn hats with eyes inside out to protect them.

Versatile; appropriate for a broad range of activities

Much of the fleece is made from recycled soda pop bottles!

I work with different thicknesses which provide different levels of insulation for outdoor activities. 

100 weight fabrics are the lightest and are excellent for a warm first layer, for heavy aerobic activity such as running or for  warmer climates.

200 weight is about twice as thick as 100wt.  It is the normal weight that jackets are made of.  It provides outstanding warmth and versatility.

300 weight is the thickest.  It provides the most warmth.  It normally is too thick for most hats

Berber  is a special fleece that is nubbly on the outside with a smooth face for the inside.   Many folks enjoy the texture of this fabric.  It is not as wind resistant as regular fleece.
