Pom Pom Care and Information

Pom Pom Information

All my pom poms are handmade by me - The Crafty Bird and made from 100% guaranteed faux fur. They are fab for topping off your own garments or knitting or crochet projects. They look especially good on a bobble hat!

All colours vary slightly depending on your device and no pom pom is exactly the same due to the nature of the fabric and how the colours are laid out.


Choose your finish - you can have the pom pom finished with strings to sew in, or press studs to make them detachable. You will need to sew the other side of the press stud onto your project.


You can sew your poms onto your hat - for a super strong hold, you can thread a needle and sew a string right through the pom before tying it tightly on the inside of your hat and sewing the ends in. To help you with this, here's a video on how to do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=056yHstek3Q&t=2s

You can also just tie a knot on the inside of the hat for easy removal, or thread the strings through a button. 

Press Stud:

Please note: Press studs can come in hundreds of different sizes. The ones I use are 21, 23 or 25mm depending on stock levels. There is no guarantee that this will fit onto something that you already have at home. All my poms come with both sides of the press stud so that you can sew the other half onto your hat or garment and it will fit perfectly.

All Pom Poms measure approx 3.5 inches in the body of the pom, plus the fur length - so those with longer piles will appear bigger. Most measure approx 5-6 inches including fur length.

If you'd like to request a custom size, just send me a message via the contact form. Please do not order a regular pom pom and add a note as your order will need to be cancelled and a custom size reordered.

Sizes available are:

  • Medium poms - approx 2 inches across plus fur length - £4.50 with strings, £5 with a press stud
  • XL poms - approx 5 inches across plus fur length - £7.50 with strings or £8 with a press stud.

Pom Pom Care:

If it looks less fluffy, give it a good shake. Try not to get your pom pom wet (a bit of rain or snow is fine!). Spot Clean only. If your pom pom gets wet, give it a blow dry to dry it and get the fluffiness back.
