Only 10 days Kickstarter campaign, because we want to ship until Christmas.  

REWARDS!

 

 By using the wool of transylvanian sheep we decided to create modern accessories for those who try to stand out of the crowd. We designed cool knitted hats, crochet scarves and knitted mittens that will keep you warm in the winter. These items are ideal Christmas gifts for your loved ones.

The handmade knitted hats have a remarkable text label with ingenious messages. What’s about this label? It is piece of material sew manually on the front of the hat that has a creative printed text such as: Ain’t no hood like motherhood, Merry fitmas and other examples that you can check in the images below.

 

 Having different themes, these messages are suitable for different age groups. Woolsylvania hand knitted hats with text labels can be offered to relatives as a sign of gratitude or you can buy them for yourself. Depending on your hobbies and passions, you can choose one of our various models of hats and labels.

 

 

Raising sheep is an old traditional activity in Romania, where shepherds take care of animals with love and respect. An old and known habit is the transhumance which is a seasonal movement of shepherds with their sheep flocks during the summer on well-established trails.

 

When autumn is nearing, they return for wintering in the native village. In Transylvania this is a celebration attended by people from all over the country who are curious to find the stories of the shepherds and to taste the traditional dishes cooked by them.

 

The sheep are tilled carefully by the shepherds, through a process that doesn’t harm them anyway. These cute animals are tilled in their natural environment and it is considered to be a good method to increase life expectancy. After the wool is collected, it's taken to special centers to be washed and cleaned. There, it is transformed into a thread that can be worked with needles or crochet hooks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHOOSE THE PERFECT COLOUR COMBINATION

Because we want to make sure that you will receive your hat on time, after pledging we invite you to leave us a message here on Kickstarter with the following details (such as what printed text label you want, what color the hat should be, what type and of course what size).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The products were designed by Cristina, the artistic part of our gang. Her modern ideas were turned into easy patterns. This process allows us to team up with older women from disadvantage zones of Romania.

After retirement, Romanian women have to cope with financial struggles. Moreover, besides an insufficient retiring allowance, these women lack other income source, that would help them to cover the day to day expense. Therefore, we want to give them a hand and offer the opportunity to work, by knitting the Woolsylvania products.

In our country, knitting is a traditional activity, practiced by grannies during their leisure time. This is a relaxing practice and also a great gift for loved ones. We decided to reward these women for their passion with a substantial amount of money. So, as you thought, romanian mothers and grandmothers receive Woolsylvania patterns and they knit hats, scarves and mittens for you. Please remember that by pledging, you help them to improve their situation!

 As you probably noticed, our messages printed on those beautiful hat labels are perfect for this holiday season. HO!HO!HO! These products are part of our Special Christmas Edition and we want you to have them until Christmas. How? Do you wonder?


In fact, it is really simple. Our Kickstarter campaign lasts only 10 days, allowing you to receive this awesome hats, scarves and mittens until this magical holiday. Please hurry up and pledge for your favourite. Minutes after you became one of our backers, the Woolsylvania team will start to knit or crochet the lovely items that you had picked.  

The hand knitted products will be shipped from Romania at the beginning of December. Remember that you have only a few days to order!

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Because we want you to have the best experience wearing our knitted products we guarantee you that you will received the items that you wished for until Christmas. This is the reason why our campaign lasts so few days, because we want the products to have enough time to reach you. Plegde now!

We know that unexpected challenges might come up, but we consider that we have the capacity and experience to solve any problem that could occure. If you have any questions or curiosities don't hesitate to communicate with us! Together we can handle every situation!
