The "Otto" (named after the canine mascot of Icebox Knitting, the great Longmont Colorado knit factory that creates our knitted hats) uses the same yarn as our luxurious bison/yak crew sock.
40% American Bison Down, 40% Tibetan Yak and 20% Primaloft (siliconized polyester). It's slightly more grey than our other hats (the yak is almost black and blends well with the bison.
Oh, so soft and light; warm, but not stifling. It has become my go-to hat when the thermometer dips below 32 and my hairless head starts to feel the breeze.
This was gift for my son, who lives in the cold, damp Pacific Northwest. He loves the hat and couldn't be happier. And thank you for your great customer service as well.
Beanie arrived relatively fast. A little thinner than I expected. Very soft and surprisingly warm for its weight. I have a big head, 7 1/2 ball cap size. Fit a little snug but not terribly tight. Overall not bad. Would have given a 5 star if thicker. It has this wired feeling band/cuff of at the bottom of the fold Doesn’t let it stretch and feels like I might pop/break the seam.
Nice fitting hat!
This hat has a great give to it and fits snuggly. The color is not 'mustard' as pictured, it's a light brown but a nice neutral color.
