These korkers are medium size (3"). They are hand-sewn together, not tied, so little hands can't pull them apart. They are attached to 1.75" ribbon-lined alligator clips (partially lined to allow for easy clipping). The clip is lined with quality grosgrain ribbon. Ribbon ends are heat-treated to prevent fraying, even ends you can't see. Ribbon is specially treated to hold its shape. Alligator clips include a "gripper strip" to keep them in place. Wear it alone, or clip it to a ponytail, headband, or beanie.
