If you want to know what hat I am most excited about this season it is this Fisherman's beanie. I am ready to tuck into this hat over the holidays and not take it off. They have a bulky enough fit to be the proportion I was seeking but the quality and texture of the yarn is the real gem here. Yak is more costly than cashmere yet has the same softness and is better at regulating temperature wise. This will not be scratchy on your forehead like wool. It has great breathability and added bonus, is moisture wicking if you start sweating while outside. This hat is the bomb! The duo glass beaded friendship pins were all strung here in the studio and are what will make all your friends ask where it came from. I hope you love this hat as much as I do, it is a great value for yak yarn.
