The importance

Our Sky Beanie - the knitters' first product. Their way out of extreme poverty. Every time you buy from us, you're ensuring the survival of a hardworking Burundian family trying to make a living as coffee farmers. But it takes our help when we're talking about the world's poorest country (2022).

When a knitter makes a hat a week, she doubles the family's income. The fastest knitter can make two hats a day.

Beautiful and climate-friendly

Our fluffy alpaca wool blend is exactly how we want it to be. Fluffy enough to snuggle up in on those early mornings. For the first 4 years, we bought yarn for the knitters through Danish wholesalers. Gradually, we found that brushed wool in alpaca was exactly what we were looking for. Alpaca is the best wool source. It is gentle in its environment, drinks very little water and eats only the outer twigs over a large area. The wool is the most temperate wool of all. So it's perfect for our changeable weather. At the same time, it holds water up to 40% of its own weight without losing its ability to keep you warm. We added the 18% recycled polyamide to ensure that the hat can withstand endless use and stay firm and beautiful. When we started building our own yarn a few years later, we were the first in Denmark to introduce brushed wool with recycled polyamide. 

The beanie is so beautiful in fresh on-time colors that you don't need to buy a new winter coat for every new winter season.

We are a slowfashion brand: higher quality; timeless designs, smaller production and no machines.


Approx. dimensions: Height before fold-up=35 cm. and 24 cm. after fold-up. Width = 21 cm. in diameter measured at the forehead.

Washing instructions

We always recommend that you hand wash and line dry our products. The wool is basically self-cleaning and you can hang it out dry in your bathroom in the steam after a shower.

Coffee Beanies The Sky beanie is a way out of poverty for a hard-working Burundian family. In fact, when a knitter makes one beanie a week, she doubles the family's income.

A hand-knitted Sky beanie is self-help

In order for a style to be included in the Coffee Beanies range, it must meet certain requirements:

  • there are many "labour-hours" in the product which gives the woman a lot of work.
  • there is new learning, so the woman can become more skilled and start selling things for the home market herself.
  • it's a fairly easy recipe so we can invite more new women on board for a job.
  • will it disturb the balance at home unnecessarily or can she continue to look after her children and do field work in the mornings.
