Rwanda "Me and My Doll" Hat Kit


MEMO: Our recycled aluminum hat tags from Kenya are currently out of stock.  We are including a free ball of Chilean yarn with each kit while the tags are unavailable.  Thank you!


This kit could be just the right present for those that enjoy their dolls including American Girl Doll.  Included in this kit is two looms and two balls of yarn.  One loom and ball is exactly the right size for a child's hat.  The second loom and matching yarn will be perfect for making a smaller hat for a doll.

 The yarn included in this KidKnits craft kit is from our partner, True Vineyard Ministries, and is handspun in Rwanda.  The wool is 100% merino sheep's wool, which is a very high quality, soft wool.  This yarn is a single-ply yarn and is spun on a drop spindle.  One ball of yarn is 70 yards in length, weighs between 120 and 150 grams, and is sufficient for one adult or child's hat.  The second included ball of yarn is 35 yards in length, and weighs between 60 and 75 grams, and is sufficient for your doll's hat. Kits are available in any of our five colors, and all dyes come from plants commonly found in Rwanda.
