I have a grey David XL and a black David Regular. They might seem a splurge, but I have wasted more than $100 on winter beanies that rarely ever got worn because the material is not soft and comfortable. K&FS cashmere beanies rock! These are super soft, and warm. I've worn one or the other for this whole Wisconsin winter.
I love the XL for colder days and nights because there is plenty of material to double it over my ears. It also makes makes a nice warm slouchy beanie for cool days. On cool days or in a cold garage shop, I will usually wear my black David Regular.
I love having one of each size, but the XL has gotten more wear as the weather got cold.
The David XL is made of sumptuous cashmere that gets softer each time you wear it. I first thought it was too stiff feeling, but the fibers quickly relaxed and it feels great on my head. I’m super satisfied with this high quality beanie! 100% recommended!
