Ohh, how cuddly! Is that a cashmere hat?

This is how customers react when they get cashmere hat Jacky in their hands while looking for a wool hat.

After that every woollen hat simply feels like a woollen hat. Even if it is organic wool or super soft baby alpaca, a cashmere hat is and remains something very special.

And there are good reasons to fall in love with a cashmere hat. The fine and long stapled cashmere hair is, in the quality Meinfrollein uses, so light and soft that touching the cashmere cap is like caressing.

It is probably this tender touch that reminds us of beautiful moments.

Who wouldn’t want to be cuddly wrapped up when it gets cold outside? The advantage of a cashmere cap is of course its low weight. In contrary to the classic wool hat the cashmere hat is a breath of nothing.

A perfect nothing that warms, snuggles us up and still doesn’t flatten the hairstyle. Anyone who feels lightly cold on their head and wears a lot of woollen hats knows the feeling. Indoors you want to take off your hat, but you don’t know what your hair looks like.

But leaving the hat on is also no alternative and so you feel uncomfortable and desperately look for the next mirror. This is probably first down the stairs, left around the corner, last door on the right…

This problem can be avoided with a light cashmere cap. The hairstyle will only be slightly changed. Due to the pure natural material, the hair is not electrostatically charged. And the low weight exerts hardly any pressure on the hairstyle. You can casually take your hat off your head and feel good!

Anyone who has decided on a cashmere cap will appreciate the advantages. Often it doesn’t end with a single cashmere hat!

Due to the low weight and the small volume, the cashmere hat is also the perfect travel companion. Packed in a small laundry bag, the cashmere cap can be easily stored in most bags.

And of course a cashmere cap is made from a purely natural and sustainable yarn. The fine hair is combed from the undercoat of the cashmere goat and sorted according to fineness and length.

This is how the high-quality yarn is made from one of the finest raw fibres from our Italian yarn suppliers. They turn the hair of the cashmere goat into this fine cashmere yarn. Our cashmere caps are made 100% in Germany.  Here know-how meets a lot of experience. Only the right washing gives the cashmere yarn its cuddly surface. We manufacture locally and sustainably! If you want to convince yourself of the quality of our Kashmir caps, you should definitely have a look at our classic cashmere cap in uni. Or you can choose our bestseller Jacky.

The cashmere cap is knitted in a fine jacquard pattern and has a small rolled edge. Both cashmere hats are a loose cut and can be casually folded into the back of the head.

If you can’t get through to a sustainable cashmere hat yet, our wool hats are also a good choice. Here there is a suitable model for every head shape and many yarns are already close to cashmere. Baby alpaca in combination with baby jak is a wonderful alternative to the cashmere hat!

Fundraising project in 2014/15

Educational project in Lukavac-Turija, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Once again, this season meinfrollein donates to a children’s village from the foundation Kinderzukunft (3 euros for every piece sold). The children’s village “Selo Mira”, located near Tuzla, receives the donation in order to buy working materials for their tailor shop.

This is where young adults get a chance to get their first work experience and to see what it means to work as tailor. In the beginning, this village used to be a shelter for widows and orphans, all refugees from the Bosnian war.

Currently it is a new home for 110 children, whose parents can’t or won’t take care of them. Since 1992, children’s future has been committed to help people from disintegrated, former Yugoslavia, who have been heavily affected by the war. Many families were forced to leave their homes, and countless children lost their parents. The foundation’s aim is to offer these people a new home. After two years of construction work, “Selo Mira”, a peace village for Bosnia, was opened on Mai 22, 1998. An area consisting of 15 hectares, part of the Lukavac-Turija community, provides a new home for more than three hundred people. This is where children and adults live in small families and are being supported by teachers.

There are, for example, a kindergarten and different educational trainings. These training are either part of regular job trainings or they are used as a work therapy, in forms of voluntary internships to prepare them for professional life in the future.

Noch heute leidet Bosnien unter den Folgen des Bürgerkrieges. In Bosnien sind nach den Kriegen der 1990er-Jahre noch 1.215 Quadratkilometer der Landesfläche vermint.

Diese Tatsache macht Bosnien und Herzegowina zum am schlimmsten von Minen verseuchten Land in Europa und zu einem der am stärksten verminten Ländern der Welt. (vgl. www.the-monitor.org)

Verschlimmert wurde die Situation durch die Flutkatastrophe im Frühjahr 2014. Durch die Fluten und Erdrutsche wurden Landminen aus dem Bosnienkrieg aufgewühlt und weggeschwemmt. Gleichzeitig wurden die Warnschilder, durch die verminten Gebiete gekennzeichnet waren, durch das Wasser fortgetragen.

Seit dem Friedensvertrag von Dayton 1995 herrscht weitgehend Stillstand in Bosnien-Herzegowina, Politiker der drei ethnischen Gruppen – Bosniaken, Kroaten und Serben – blockieren sich gegenseitig, Korruption und Vetternwirtschaft ist weitverbreitet, die Arbeitslosigkeit liegt bei 45 Prozent.
