The red hat that will last many years… taken down by the hot wash

Alas, the Hat that will last many years and The Toddler Scarf fell victim to the one-two punch of puke and hot wash. The little girl was unwell while out and about, causing her to come home with a bag of clothes covered in puke. And father did what any sensible person would do – put the whole lot in the washing machine. As mum was silly enough to make toddler items out of hand-wash only wool, this is what we ended up with.

I’ll admit – I was gutted and may have even shed a tear over the loss of the hat. But there have been lessons learned as a result and should I make another, you can bet it will be washable wool.
