Precious hats for children ~ Petite Tuques Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Yuki #79!


~ Introducing Petite Tuques ~

Welcome everyone! As you can probably see, I never stop making hats! I love the different designs, and I'm determined to make something for everyone.

I am a mother of two small boys, and they help a lot in the process, from trying on and modeling the hats, to picking up the bits of yarn and playing with the "snakes"...

I'm located in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, so I know all about cold weather. I need warm hats for most of the year, it's kind of sad.

So come and browse the shop. If you have suggestions, I'll be happy to listen!

I’ve been asked by some, what is a tuque? So I thought I’d write up some fun facts.

1. A Tuque is a hat.
2. Tuques started out as a hat made of velvet, worn by women in the 12th century.
3. Tuque can spelled three different ways: tuque, toque, touque.
4. There is a town called La Tuque, Quebec
5. There is a website called Tuques.com
6. A red tuque became a symbol of French-Canadian pride
7. Michael J Fox said during the Olympic closing ceremony “If I have a bad hair day, I wear a tuque"
8. There is a hat called Took, which has headphones built inside!

0-3m Lacy Wool Cable *Chic Tuque

This openwork hat is made in wool. It is great for newborn photos, but also good for those cool nights out.

0-3m Elvish *Chic Tuque

This ear flap hat is made in a luxury yarn of Silk and Wool. Very soft to the touch and equally warm, it will be great as a first hat.

Both hats featured are size newborn, but can be made in bigger sizes.

Items made in a smoke-free home.

One lucky reader will win the child tuque of their choice!

You may also take 40% OFF with the discount code 40Funky! Wow - what a deal!
