What is a quality wool hat?

In our opinion, a wool hat should:

  • Be made of natural material: avoid synthetic materials such as acrylic or polyester. These petroleum-derived materials provide no profit and are only used by clothing brands to lower the cost of production. Result: poor quality clothing. Instead, choose natural materials like wool. And if possible, merino wool , finer than ordinary wool, it also has interesting properties: thermoregulating, merino wool regulates your body temperature by letting your scalp breathe. Antibacterial, it does not let bad odors take hold. In our opinion, a merino wool hat is the best.
