10,000 pom poms?

This is the first vintage fur pom pom I ever made.

My actual brainstorm was to make “hair poms.” [Maybe i should have been brainstorming the location of my hairbrush ?]

I listed a few of these recycled fur pom poms, and soon I had customers buying them in large quantities. I wondered why on earth anyone would order so many hair poms at once. Of course I found out that they weren’t buying them to wear in their hair — they were hat knitters who needed them to make their knit hats pOp!

I started getting a lot of requests for faux fur hat poms too, so I sourced some luxury faux furs, made some, and added them to my shop too.

In the past three years, I think I must have made more than 10,000 pom poms.

Last week, 100 of these mini mink shoe poms made their way to New York.

–And I just finished this faux fur 105-pom order today; on its way to Michigan.

As long as knitters are busy knitting, I’ll be busy making poms for them!

2017 Fall and Winter color trends

Color Palette for New York

“Bookended by a dynamic Grenadine red and a tawny Autumn Maple, the color palette for Fall 2017 leans more to warmth, “ says Eiseman. “While comforting, enveloping colors and ease are crucial to the seasonal feeling, standout shades include a pale pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime, and a bright Marina blue. These hues add a striking touch when paired with the classic autumnal shades of Navy Peony, Neutral Gray, Butterrum and Tawny Port.” …more
