Oeuf Animal Hats, Mittens, and Booties
We love pretty much everything that Oeuf creates from Halloween costume accessories to adorable pillows to kid’s furniture. Our adoration doesn’t stop when it comes to their animal winter gear. Create a pair of matching (or dare to mix and match!) mittens, booties and a hat with their super-soft alpaca wool styles. Choose from moose, dragon, sheep, wolf, polar bear and bunny options. While Oeuf’s offerings are a bit pricey, the quality means they’ll last for several winters and they may even get used for dress up play or Halloween in the off-season.
