Wyld - Weka Woo Hat
Weka, a flightless native New Zealand bird, is cheeky, outgoing and vivacious. Roger Beattie spent 17 years on the Chatham Islands often involved with conservation. Each Weka Woo™ Hat has a Weka feather. This symbolises the conservation struggle to farm these native birds. We fully support the farming of Weka as a means of saving them from extinction. ‘No farmed species has ever died out’.
Organically grown and scoured. A spontaneous visual harmony of non-dyed natural yarn fibres, spun to create garments that maintain natural drape, whilst enhancing the wearer. Do not cover yourself in plastic. We do not Superwash or Thermoset. We give natural comfort without any need to acid wash, or cover our wool in a .5 micron layer of plastic.
