This lovely hat is not just your average wool hat. It is handmade from 100% merino wool, a fine wool fiber with excellent insulation, moisture-wicking, and breathability. This natural material ensures lasting quality, so this hat will last you for many years to come. Merino wool is also soft and luxurious, which makes it extremely comfortable to wear. This gorgeous hat features a cable stitch design, an authentic Aran stitching pattern that is frequently used for Irish garments. This is because Irish designers treasure the traditional Aran craft and want to preserve it. The cable knit Aran pattern is combined with a contemporary faux fur pom-pom, which gives the design a nice playful touch.
