The Petite Wool from We Are Knitters

Composition: 100% wool

This faux fur pom pom measures roughly 7.5/8" in diameter from tip to tip.
This fur has a pale pink colored base, with longer strands scattered throughout that are brown and black.
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
Do not put in the dryer
To fluff up the poms, run a hairdryer over them for about 5 seconds and give them a good shake.
