Warm and comfortable but...
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 November 2021
This is a 46% merino wool hat.
It is 32% nylon and 22% acrylic.
The hat is warm and comfortable.
It is double thickness, and while I prefer a fleece liner, this hat has a perfectly acceptable knitted liner.
OK, so, - it looks good, it is warm, and it is comfortable.
Let's now come to what is wrong, very wrong with this hat...
The top of the hat has very long stitches, as it gathers on the top of the head.
The liner does not have such long stitches which helps keep the heat in, but on the outer layer they are both noticeable and problematic.
They make the hat look slightly unfinished, and when walking in the countryside pull badly when snagged on twigs from overhanging branches.
They are a very unusual design feature and are inconsistent with the price of the hat, or the premium merino wool it is made with.
