Rejoice! Rejoice! Those of you who wear a hat instead of hair, rejoice! Why, you ask? Because the so-called baby beanies made and sold by PACT can fit on an adult-sized head. How do I know this? It’s simple. In the spirit of actual investigative journalism, I dug deep into (my pocket) the baby beanie underworld (the PACT section of my local Whole Foods Market) and took a chance that a beanie in the size known as 12-24 months could stretch to fit my giant head. Come to find out, I was correct in that assumption.
As it turns out, and many women can attest to this, babies have big heads. Pictures of me at this stage of development, from little baby to bounding toddler, serve as clear evidence of the fact that I was all head and feet. In fact, if it wasn’t for my big feet, I don’t know how that little body would have supported such a large skull.
The PACT Baby Beanies, like just about everything they make, are made out of an unbelievably soft blend of 95% organic cotton and 5% elastane. The cotton makes them soft and the elastane provides the stretch. What we end up with is a very cute reversible beanie that may or may not be entirely age-appropriate, but who cares? My head is the perfect temperature, and that’s all that matters, at least as far as this article goes, anyhow.
The light cotton jersey of the PACT Baby Beanies makes for a near perfect California cover up. It keeps the cold out, the heat in, and the sun off of that delicate place where hair once grew. The material is light enough to be worn comfortably indoors or out, and since it is a PACT product, the prints are beautiful, timeless, and just right whether paired with my big, bushy beard or the fine peach fuzz of your favorite toddler.
