To the blog!!! (said like "To the batmobile!"

correction to your description

Hi there, The hat is really adorable, and I just wanted to point out that 100% acrylic is not perfect for little babies skin. Acrylic is a synthetic fiber, like a plastic, and can irritate skin with eczema and other skin conditions. It may feel like wool, but it's not natural at all. Using 100% wool or other natural fibre is best, organic is even better. Much success with your business! (Women's Name)

WHO does THIS?!?!

My Response:
Hi there yourself, Thank you for your concerned advice. I never do say at any time that Acrylic is a natural fibre - I am quite aware that it is not. I have 3 children and they all have eczema to certain degrees - in fact 2 of them have quite bad eczema which is irritated by wool. I was merely meaning to state that Acrylic can be a good alternative to wool for children with sensitive skin - in particular those with eczema - especially since Acrylic is often given such a bad rap, whilst Wool is always lauded as this "all perfect" substance - not so. I do not consider a substance, however natural, that causes your child's skin to erupt in a red angry rash to be "all perfect", much less "best". Thank you for sharing your heartfelt opinion, but I will be leaving my description (which - from my OWN personal experience - I feel is a true and accurate description) as is. Cheers, Ana

WHO is this woman?!? What, she wanders the net at night trolling crafty item descriptions to nitpick at?!!!



I also REALLY wish I could have used italics in my response - if I could have I would have typed it like this:
"Thank you for sharing your heartfelt opinion,"

Wow, I think you may need to lie down. Have you tried SSRIs for your aggression? LOL!

Oh, I could have written more. She really riled me.
I felt bad that I left her name up there for all to see though. Overnight.

...ok...only a little...

I'm sorry - I can't resist - it appears the woman who sent me this message - actually entitled "correction to your description" (I mean, come ON, WHO does this kind of thing?!?) - is not only from Wellington but specifically Kapiti - Ange - I'm holding you personally responsible for her and her weirdo outburst! :P
