CROCHET HEADBAND Ear Warmer Solid Fig Purple Thick Chunky Warm Winter Wool Women's, Men's Simple Basic Knit Head Band, Ready to Ship in 3 Days
Handmade Fig Purple Winter Crocheted Headband Soft & Thick Headband, or Ear Warmer. I used a high quality super-bulky wool blend yarn that creates a very thick and warm crocheted fabric. The color is called Fig, a medium purple that is lot like a faded eggplant shade of purple. Over the past few years I've had so many requests for hats and ear warmers that coordinate with my scarves, that I've come up with a simple headband pattern that will look nice with the Wool-Ease scarves and neck warmers in my shop. I can easily make this headband in any of the Wool-Ease colors I use. Please send a message if you're interested in another color. Yarn Content: 80% Acrylic/20% Wool Yarn Brand: Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick N Quick Yarn Label Color: Fig Approximate Length (full circumference): 20 inches/50cm Approximate Width: 3.5 inches/8.5cm SIZE: The headband in the photos will fit best on a head size of 22" (56 cm). I will also be offering a few different head sizes, please choose whichever is closest to your own. Crocheted fabric always has some give/stretch. The mannequin In the photos has a head size of 22 inches/55.8 cm and the headband fits closely on her but not tightly. For small changes in size I do not charge any extra. From my own experience with winter headbands I've made for myself, I've designed this one to have a minimal amount of stretch on one edge to reduce the amount of stretching overall. This means there's actually a top and bottom to the headband, the top edge has only so much "give" so that the headband won't slip down too far. When I ship the headbands, I will add a marker of some sort (such as a ribbon) to the top edge to indicate which edge is the top. :) This headband is crocheted "in the round" to eliminate seams, but the area where I turn to start each new row will look different than the rest of the headband. This area can be seen in the last photo. PLEASE NOTE: The Wool-Ease Thick N Quick yarn contains some wool, so if you're allergic to or even sometimes irritated by wool, I wouldn't recommend purchasing this item. As far as wool/acrylic blends go, this one is great quality & very soft, but will still bother those of us who tend to get itchy when wearing wool. (: CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Can be washed in cool and dried in dryer, however I recommend either hand washing in cold water and laying flat to dry, or washing on a gentle cycle in a lingerie bag and drying only a few minutes in the dryer. The gentler washing & drying prevents the yarn from frizzing over time. Avoid washing with heavier garments that cause friction. If using washing machine, avoid washing with items that have zippers, buttons, etc that may snag the yarn loops and pull on them or make the yarn fray. U.S. SHIPPING: I keep shipping to a minimum and offer First Class Package as the best value for price & speed. For multiple orders, I often use Priority Mail. For Ready to Ship items, I'll ship within two business days. For items made to order, I'll ship as soon as I have the scarf finished (within the time-frame stated in the listing title). I use the PayPal/USPS integrated shipping system whenever possible, so you will be provided with a delivery confirmation number by email from PayPal. Most First Class packages take two to five days to be delivered. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I always combine shipping for multiple orders. I most commonly use USPS First Class International for shipping outside of the US. First Class International may take a longer time to arrive than other services, but it's much more affordable than Priority International (which usually runs $25 or more for a few ounces). Delivery time for international packages is usually 5 to 15 business days. Customs, bad weather, or national holidays can sometimes slow down a package with the occasional shipment taking around 30 days to arrive. This only happens to about 5% of my international shipments. (: In the last four years, USPS has raised prices significantly for First Class International, in some cases more than doubling the amount they used to charge before 2013. On a positive note, as part of that price increase, they include tracking and delivery confirmation as part of the First Class service for almost all the countries I ship to. To keep shipping costs down, I will use lightweight polymer shipping envelopes as often as possible. For multiple items, I may find a cardboard box is best. International Buyers Please Note: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. PAYMENTS: I accept PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account, you will still be able to pay with a credit or debit card through PayPal. You can also pay from your bank account using an E-check (also through the PayPal system), but I won't be able to ship until the check has cleared, PayPal says it's okay to ship and allows me to print out a label. RETURNS: For now, I am not accepting returns, but am completely open to resolving any problems that may occur. I feel the best strategy is to head off any problems before they even happen. If you have any questions whatsoever about any items I am selling, please ask. Thanks for looking! (:
