The hat is made from a 50% wool/50% draylon yarn, which is aran weight and is made by Tivoli, an Irish wool company. As the yarn is half wool, the hat is lovely and warm but isn't stiff or scratchy like pure wool can sometimes be.
Due to the high percentage wool in the yarn, the hat needs to be hand-washed only and dried flat - full care instructions will be included with your purchase.
The hat (measured flat) is just under 27cm or 10.5" approx across the base and is 27cm or 10.5" from the top to the edge - that's with the brim not folded back. It comfortably fits an average sized adult head.
You can wear it with the brim folded up or pulled down for extra snuggliness - but in the photos I have the brim folded back as a beanie hat.
