I bought these in two sizes and colors for my 5mo old. Both are absolutely beautiful and the colors radiant, as are all Soul wovens in person. The reverse looks just as good as the brightly colored side. The 3-6mo hat - I'm not sure if it's because I washed it and it shrunk a bit or if my baby just has a big head with serious chipmunk cheeks, but the hat was a bit small and the chin strap SUPER snug! The brim also narrowed in the wash, though that effect might be exaggerated by how wrinkly linen is without ironing. I didn't wash the 6-12mo hat and it fits as expected, though the reason I didn't wash it immediately is because the chin strap was cut clean through. I'm not sure if it arrived that way or if I accidentally did it while opening the package. I'm pretty careful and didn't remember going through any thick bits when opening, but I'm not going to blame someone else for something that could be my fault. Regardless of how the cut happened, I hand stitched it back on at the exact angle it was cut and found that the snap had been attached to the wrong side of the strap so it has to be twisted to secure it. For all these little things, I deducted a star from my review. Otherwise, I love how lightweight and breathable the hats are - they really are designed to be everything I want in a baby hat!
