This large faux fur pom pom measures roughly 7" in diameter from tip to tip.
The color of this fur is light gray with small black streaks scattered throughout.
I have taken these photos in natural lighting to best capture the true color of the fur.
All poms are made by hand and cut from high-quality, long-pile fabric.
Each pom pom comes with two long strands of thick cord to easily attach to the top of a hat. The cord I use is a squishy, fabric covered nylon that reduces slipping of the tie and will keep your pom securely attached.
Spot clean only
Do not submerge in water

To fluff up the poms, run a hairdryer over them for about 5 seconds and give them a good shake.
