This simple little silk bonnet is the perfect newborn baby hat. The hat is made from soft, healing Bourette silk and features a gentle silk tie to fasten to your baby's head. This hat is particularly good for babies with sensitive scalps, since Bourette silk is known for its healing properties. Silk maintains warmth during cooler weather and keeps your baby cool during hot temperatures. Silk is a wonderful fabric to be worn directly next to the skin and your little one will be warm and comfortable any time of year. Silk is gentle and healthy for sensitive baby skin and stays cool in summer and warm in winter.
This hat is made from organic Bourette silk, which is quite different from pure filament silk. Bourette silk has a more uneven, natural, earthy texture, rather than the smooth, 'silky' texture that most people associate with silk. Bourette silk is known for its natural healing properties, making it an excellent choice for babies.
Made by Sichuan Alkena, this hat is 100% certified organic silk. Alkena silk is the only silk in the world that is certified organic. The benefit of organic silk for your baby is that there are no chemical residues left on the finished garment following processing.
