How to make custom beanies (2023)

Custom beanies are a great way to promote your business, organization, or personal brand. They can be designed and manufactured to your specific requirements and can include features such as custom logos, embroidery, or prints.


When ordering custom beanies, there are several things to consider to ensure that the final product meets your expectations:



The type of material used for the beanie is important as it will affect the quality, durability, and overall look of the beanie. Common materials used for beanies include acrylic, cotton, wool, and cashmere.


Acrylic fibers are known for their durability, warmth, and resistance to shrinkage and stretching. They are also lightweight and easy to clean, making them a popular choice for custom beanies.


Cotton is a natural, breathable material that is comfortable to wear. It's also hypoallergenic, making it a good option for those with sensitive skin. Cotton beanies are also easy to care for, and can be machine washed.



Wool is a warm and insulating material that is naturally water-resistant. Wool beanies are also durable and can withstand a lot of wear and tear. They are also breathable, which can help keep the head warm and dry.



Cashmere is a luxurious, ultra-soft, and warm material that is made from the hair of cashmere goats. It's a high-quality material that is lightweight and perfect for custom beanies.



Polyester is a synthetic material that is known for its durability and resistance to shrinking.



The design of the beanie should be clearly defined, including any logos, embroidery or prints. You may also want to specify the placement and size of the design on the beanie. Provide us with artwork or designs that we can use to create the custom beanies.



Specifying the size of the beanie is important to ensure that the beanie will fit the intended recipients. It's important to take into account that some materials may shrink or stretch, so it's best to provide the vendor with the head circumference of the intended recipients for a perfect fit.


Standard Sizes: We offer standard sizes for beanies such as Small, Medium, and Large. These sizes are based on head circumference measurements and are designed to fit most people.


Custom Sizing: We also offer custom sizing options, which allow you to provide your own head circumference measurement for a perfect fit. This option is ideal for those who have a hard time finding a beanie that fits them properly.


Child/Youth sizes:  We offer specific sizes for children and youth, which are designed to fit smaller head sizes.


It's important to note that beanies made of stretchy materials like acrylic, wool, or cashmere will have more flexibility with sizing, whereas beanies made of non-stretch materials like cotton will need to be made to specific measurements.




Specify the color of the beanie, including any specific Pantone colors. Provide us with the color codes or a physical sample of the desired color to ensure that the final product matches your expectations.



A single-layer beanie is made up of a single layer of material. This can be knit, crocheted, or made from a single piece of fabric. Single-layer beanies are lightweight and great for mild weather conditions or for layering. They are also a good choice for those who prefer a more streamlined look. Single-layer beanies are easy to make, so they can be a cost-effective option.


A double-layer beanie is made up of two layers of material, usually an outer layer and an inner fleece lining. These beanies are designed for extremely cold weather conditions and provide extra warmth and comfort. They are also great for people who are sensitive to cold or for people who spend a lot of time outdoors in cold weather. Double-layer beanies are also great for branding and personalization as they can have different colors, fabrics, and prints on each layer.


When choosing between single-layer and double-layer beanies, it's important to consider the intended use and weather conditions. Single-layer beanies are lightweight and great for mild weather conditions or for layering, while double-layer beanies provide extra warmth and comfort in extremely cold weather conditions. Additionally, double-layer beanies provide more room for customization and branding.
