Its an ok beanie and does what it should do. Im not impressed with the quality of it however b/c after one wash on a gentle cycle with the beanie inside of a pillow case (tied off on one end) the king and fifth metal logo has come off and the beanie itself had a bunch of fluff (idk the technical term for this) and loose material coming off of it. I also let it air dry as suggested.
As a mostly bald guy who prefers my remaining hair pretty short, my head is often cold in the Minnesota winters, and if my head is cold the rest of me typically is too. I have a big head and have been frustrated with how my other hats slide up and don’t stay where I need them to be. The size of this hat is perfect and the blend is very warm and comfortable. Love that cashmere! While the price was high relative to other options is has been worth every penny.
