Our Amnicon Hat is made from Polartec® Power Wool™, a bi-component fabric that places soft merino wool next to the skin and a durable polyester knit on the shell. This best-of-both-worlds construction provides the benefits of wool (warmth, odor resistance) to the inside and the benefits of polyester (durability, stability) to the outside. Additionally, it features a grid on the woolen, inside face to provide airflow near the skin. We use two layers of this material to produce a light/medium weight hat that is great for cool weather and winter athletics.
Note that you can choose between our fixed or rolled band options. The fixed band is made by folding up the inner layer and sewing it to the upper shell - making a band that is 2 layers thick. This is the better choice for a hat to go under a helmet, or for those who like the look of a slim band over the ears. Alternatively, the rolled band is an unfixed fold of both the inside and outside layers and is therefore 4 layers thick. This is the better option if you like more warmth over the ears, like to change the depth of the hat, or like the look of a thicker band.
