1. Dreadlovers ... for dread lovers

We are very proud to introduce you the new brand Dreadlovers. These products, from Belgium, are developed by and for dreadheads.

Eau de Dread

Eau de Dread is a spray to effectively combat less pleasant smells. Perfect if you´re working in a restaurant, or just quickly want to improve your dread smell. As the name reveals, Eau de Dread is an alcohol based spray. It also contains natural extracts from differents species of plants.


Because washing your dreadlocks improves the lockung up proces, a shampoo is also part of the Dreadlovers brand. Packaged in a beautiful bottle, this shampoo will clean well without being too harsh. It has a lovely perfume, thanks to the extracts of (amongst others) lavender, tea tree and lemon balm.

Eau de Dread, available in the following flavours Male Breeze, Patchouli Love, Neutral Scent and Spring Break. Available from 9 December: Coco Nuts. € 10,90

Shampoo Dreadlovers, available from 14 December, € 10,90

4. Delivery times in december

In Germany: all shipments have some delay, due to the terrorism alert.

For all countries we advise you to order as soon as possible, because Christmas volumes can delay delivery. We do ship your order as fast as we can once we have received the payment, but nevertheless we will give you 3 tips:

  1. Pay using PayPal or Creditcard through PayPal (but not an eCheck!), or iDEAL (only in The Netherlands). These are instant payment methods. This way we get your order quickly to the post office.
  2. Order and pay: the sooner, the better. You will have the best chances to receive your order on time.
  3. Do you live outside the Netherlands, do not hesitate to ask for additional (faster) shipping options. We will inform you about the delivery times and extra costs, after which it is up to you to decide.
IMPORTANT: please realize that we can never guarantee delivery times, but use the estimates given by the mail companies.

5. Crochet your own dread hat?

Who has been following us, knows that we have made some pretty dread hats. And the crochet virus is spreading! We got quite a lot of question: whther we could make a custom hat, e-mail the patterns and when they will be for sale.
The bad news is that we really do not have the time to do custom hat orders. The good news is, that we will sell a limited number of handmade dread hats soon. And, exclusively for newsletter subscribers: we offer one pattern for free!

Information crochet pattern

The pattern we are providing is from the turquoise dread cap. To be able to follow the pattern, you need have some experience with crochet patterns. Can you dream things like double crochet, clusters, chains, slip stitches, increase and decrease? Then this pattern will be a piece of cake.

What you need:

  • Crochet hook 5 mm
  • 200 grams thick yarn (we used acrylic yarn of 65 meters/50 grams)

This hat is suitable for a lot of dreads. Tha pattern comes in 2 variations: 1 for smaller head sizes (S/M) and a larger one. We do admit that we wanted to wait with publishing this pattern. We have some pics and vids ready for explaining crochet stitches. If you are not too experienced, please have a little patience. Otherwise: have fun making this hat!
