Hand-Made: Our knit kippot are hand crocheted from cotton yarn. This means that each kippah is an individual and different from the others. They vary slightly in quality, in size, in colors, in the tightness of the weave, and in the adherence to the design on this website. If you look carefully enough, you may find imperfections. If the kippah has a light base color, it may have some light discoloration due to the extensive handling during its production. However, we have a very high satisfaction level with our customers - once they understand that these are not machine-manufactured.
Size: We aim to provide a standard size of approximately six inches diameter, however this varies somewhat.
We can configure the personalized labels many different ways, combining both English and Hebrew writing. Please feel free to use our templates to help you decide on the wording for your labels. We print the inscriptions in black onto a finely woven cloth that is then affixed to the undersides of the kippot. [more]
