a sleek, seamless design is the trademark of our brand-new line of budget-friendly bonnets.
our solBonnets feature:
what’s the difference between a solBonnet & a modBonnet?
our modBonnet is our highest end bonnet. it features our exclusive arch-seamtm design. it has our longest, most protective, and most stable brim. it provides truly unparalleled sun protection. because of the excellent brim stability, it’s well suited for water-based summertime activities such as days at the pool, ocean-side excursions, and boat trips. the brim stability also means that it will stay out even on windy days. our modBonnets have a generous and very flexible fit. most mamas find that our bonnets fit far past the stated age range on the hats.
our solbonnet has a slightly shorter brim—by about ½”. because our solBonnet does not have any interfacing fabric for brim stability, it has a floppier, garden-hat style brim, with a slightly wider flare around the head. it tends to give a bit more room over the top of the head, and to have a bit less brim stability. because it has less brim stability, we recommend it for dry summertime activities. it also has a slightly different fit, and will fit truer to the stated size range (of course, ALWAYS measure your little one’s head to get the correct fit). the best feature of the solBonnet is that there’s no seam to interrupt our darling fabrics!
as with our modBonnets, the solBonnets come in 5 sizes:
extra small: 16-17.25”, usually fits 0-6 months
small: 17-18.5”, usually fits 6-12 months
medium: 18-19.25”, usually fits 12-18 months
large: 19-21”, usually fits 18 months -3t
extra large: 21”+, usually fits 3t- adult (yes, adult! the size is flexible enough to snap down to fit a kid and extend out to fit many (but not all) adult heads)

our solBonnets are 100% cotton, handmade in the usa of imported materials, made by work-at-home women in ohio, and are totally machine washable and dryable. we recommend that you take the bonnet out of the wash and line dry it for best results. or, if you take it out of the dryer while it’s still SLIGHTLY damp and re-shape it, it won’t need to be pressed. if you leave it in the dryer and it gets all wrinkled, a hot steam iron will make short work of the wrinkles!
and like everything from UB2, your bonnet is totally guaranteed FOR LIFE against any manufacturing defects. just drop us a note if your bonnet ever needs service.
The best and most reliable way to size a hat for your darlin' guy or gal is to measure their head circumference.
Age and/or clothing size is usually not the best way to size for a hat.
Our Bonnets, Caps, and Buckets come in 6 sizes. Our smallest size fits most newborns and our largest size fits most kids ages 4 and up-- and even adults! Buckets and Caps run true-to-size. Bonnets run large. Our winter hats are lined with a thick, warm fleece and tend to run small … so for those, if you’re in doubt, size up.
Our Pixies, Pilots, and wildThings come in 4 sizes: infant, baby, kid, and adult. Again, measuring your child’s head is the best way to determine size.
