This hat and mittens set are the perfect accessories to keep little hands and heads warm for wintertime, outdoor play, and discovery. Sylvan is a word used in mythology for Woodland people. I loved pairing the name with this design because the cables remind me of twisting roots and branches in a forest. When these mittens and hat are worn, Little Ones can add their own stories and outdoor adventures to the tales of the Sylvan. With an unfolded brim, the hat wears as slouchy wit with a folded brim it will fit snuggly to the head. Unfolded the mittens are great for cold winter days or fold them for easy wear.
