Kippah measurements how they fit
Kippah measurements -- how they fit, how to wear a yarmulke
Saucer (small kippahs):
Our saucer or small kippahs are 5.5" in diameter and 1" deep. They are reversible (second side is a solid color) so you get two kippahs in one! You will most likely need to use clips.

Traditional or regular kippahs:
Our regular sized kippahs are 7.5" in diameter or 11" from one side over the top to the other side. They fit nicely, molding to your head without clips, for most people aged 3 and up. Please measure your head, especially for children, as age generally does not always correlate with head size (some kids have bigger than average heads while some have smaller than average). Also please consider your hair style (thick, thin, bald, etc.) when selecting this style. You may need clips.
Our toddler sized kippahs are generally 6.5" in diameter or 9" from one side over the top to the other side.

Bucharian or Sephardic hat style kippahs:
Our Bucharian / Buchari / Sephardic hat style kippahs or yarmulkes fit like hats for those wanting to have this style. They can also be worn on the back of your head in the same manner as the traditional style yarmulke.
I make whole sizes only beginning with 21" for many of the kippahs up to 25" in circumference. I measure from the inside. While there is only about 1/4" difference between the inside and the outside measurement on most of the kippahs, the tapestry kippahs can run between a 1/2" to 3/4" difference between the inside and the outside.
To determine your size: Measure by placing the measuring tape about 1" above the ears and round up or down to the nearest whole size. Please consider your hair style as well. Of course email me for help.
