The precise pattern of banded designs that layer this classic tassel earflap beanie illustrate a traditional and Nordic theme to winter style. Inspired by retro-chic ski fashion, the knit snowflakes with congruent layers of patterns above and below complete its vintage appeal. This 100% wool earflap beanie sits with a classic fit and keeps your head and ears protected without making you overheat. Its authentic wool composition makes this hat super warm, even on the most brutal winter days. Material and thoughtful design only add to this hat's utility: Wool is naturally heat retentive, water repellent, highly breathable and antibacterial (which helps to keep smelling and feeling fresh) and still stays warm when wet (think heavy snow or rain). Meanwhile, our incredibly warm and soft Original Turtle Fur® Fleece band lining is built in to each of our Classic Wool Ski Hats, which continues into the earflap lining, eliminating itch and trapping additional heat around your ears and forehead. The partial lining allows for breathability when it is needed through the unlined crown portion.
