I hesitated to spend this much on a hat, but it is so worth it. The yarn is incredibly soft and breathable. It kept my head warm while I walked to work in the Boston winter. I have about two feet of hair that I wear in a braid or bun, and the hat fits comfortably over either one without getting too tight or giving me bad "hat hair." Highly recommend!
I have worn the the hat several times and it all that I expected and more. So I would recommend it to my friends.
