New Shola 230 Esker Hat
I had a hard time believing this didn't have any synthetic material in the fabric - it's stretchy but 'firm.' The fabric is smooth and comfortable next to your skin (my dome is cropped very close anyway) and offers a really nice balance of warmth and moisture wicking. This was my go-to hat during hard winter hikes this winter; it compares well with merino wool beanies I have worn from a number of other companies.
I bought these beanies for my brothers, and liked it so much I bought one for myself! It is light, comfortable and fits my large head. It's a great beanie to layer under a hat or helmet. It's a little pricey, but well made, so I hope it lasts for years to come!
