Women’s Cancer Hats US USA United States

I had a really lovely online enquiry from a customer earlier asking about shipping our bold Beanies cancer hats to the USA. 

She was looking for stylish women’s headwear which was also comfortable as she’s having chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer. I explained about our snug, coton beanie cancer hats and beautiful quality Liberty printed double sided head scarf made for comfort and ease after surgery. 

Having chemo, she’d lost her hair quickly and felt cold at night, like I did. Her bald scalp was extra sensitive, so she wanted cotton headwear as they are hypoallergenic and breathable. The skull caps for ladies are suitable for daywear and as a temperature controlling cancer sleep hat.

She ordered some soft cancer Beanies (plain colours and Liberty prints) and head scarves to be shipped to America and had a headwear bouquet sent to a friend as a thoughtful cancer gift also having chemotherapy in Ireland. She also ordered a graffiti greetings skull cap to be sent to America for her and her children to write on for her oncologist as he is a runner as thin breathable sweat wicking exercise beanie.

I really love hearing from my customers and good feedback about our pretty cancer headwear. 

Fast international shipping to USA, Canada, Australia and Ireland. FREE SHIPPING on all orders over £65.

Kids Design Loving PICC Line Cover for Their Mum

Kids Design Loving PICC Line Cover for Their Mum

I was so happy to receive these wonderful photos from a lovely customer and see this new addition to the bold Beanie range being used just as I'd hoped.

Nicola's sweet young children decorated a PICC line cover sleeve to cover up her chemotherapy port and help her through treatment when they can't be with their mummy. 

How wonderful. Decorated with hearts, flowers rainbow and declarations of love from her children aged 5 and 18 months. 

Nicola has rhabdomyosarcoma which is a soft tissue cancer. The primary cancer is in her nose and it spread to a lymph node in my neck and is having intense chemotherapy which started within days of me being diagnosed. Wishing you every strength Nicola for the remainder of your treatment... take things easy and get lots of cuddles.

The Bold Beanies Greetings Graffiti PICC Line Cover Sleeve plays on the idea of signing a broken arm or leg cast and sending a greetings get well soon card. The pack is delivered with a plain white PICC sleeve and pack of fabric pens for you to customise and add your slogans and messages. The fabric pen ink remains washable until ironed and set.

The perfect gift for a child to colour and draw on for a parent, carer or loved one with Cancer and also as a gift for a crafty child in hospital... they can design their own PICC sleeve to cover up a port or wear in solidarity.

These PICC Line cover sleeves are made using quality soft stretchy cotton breathable fabric to cover a PICC line on the arm port for comfort and security. 

Also suitable for IV Line, Diabetes Pump and CGM Sensor.

Liberty Art Fabrics - Why are Liberty Print Cancer hats & scarves so special?

Liberty Art Fabrics - Why are Liberty Print Cancer hats & scarves so special?

I'm so proud to offer my Bold Beanies headwear in such beautiful quality Liberty prints. Simple, easy to wear and immaculately constructed cancer beanies, headscarves, head wraps and PICC covers made using these wonderful and uplifting prints from Liberty of London so quintessential British & with quintessential quirkiness.

As one of the best-known department stores in the UK, Liberty London offers a diverse range of products, but one of their staple products & absolute best sellers are their fabrics – specifically their cotton prints. Not surprising, then, is that the founder of Liberty London has his roots in fabric and Liberty has a great tradition and history spanning a period of over 80 years.

In the 1920s, Liberty began to produce miniature floral, paisley & abstract prints that became known as ‘Liberty Prints’ and the rest, as far as I am concerned, is history.

Englishman Arthur Lasenby Liberty began his career as an apprentice for a draper. He then took on a job at Farmer & Roger’s Great Shawl and Cloak Emporium – a position that set him on course of his life’s work. After ten years of work there, learning about textiles & other arts, he decided to branch out and open his own business in 1875, named ‘East India House’ where he solely sold Oriental imports – namely rugs, decorative objects and…fabrics!

In 1875 a small shop opened in Regent Street London called Liberty & Co. This was the dream of an Englishman Arthur Liberty, a man of great vision and artistic skills who until his death in 1917 played a leading part in the growth and achievements of a wonderful department store.

Arthur Liberty spent many years travelling to Eastern parts of the world gaining inspiration for the development of his store and he would bring home beautiful rugs and fabrics from these countries. He involved William Morris and other famous artists of the 19th century in the designing of rugs and materials. Some of these early designs are still used today.
