“Woolly is an amazing designer who brings endless life and creativity to the field of Hat design” Amy Singer

“Flat-knit Hats are Woolly Wormhead’s signature. They live, it seems, to dream up new ways of shaping and re-shaping one of the most fundamental (and let us admit, so often boring) knitted garments.” Franklin Habit

“They call themselves a Hat architect, but I think Woolly Wormhead is a Hat magician. How else can one person take something as simple and ubiquitous as a knitted Hat and reinvent it over and over again into something beautiful and interesting?” Jillian Moreno

“You feel like you are discovering a secret treasure when you look through one of Woolly Wormhead’s books. Their Hat designs are like nothing else out there” Susan B. Anderson
