Luckily, wool can hold up well in the rain or snow. Just make sure to take proper care of your hat once you get home (hang to dry!)
Do wool hats cause hair loss?
Wool hats, like any other hats, can cause breakage over time. Especially if they’re incredibly tight (luckily, though, wool hats are looser than baseball caps.) Prevent breakage by making sure you’re not cutting off any circulation to your head. Be honest with yourself – you know when a hat is too tight!
Another is to make sure that you’re only wearing your hat when you’re outside. We get it, you want to look cute indoors, or maybe you didn’t wash your hair that day. But your hair will thank you in the long run if you take your hat off after you come inside. Let it breathe.
How do you clean a wool hat?
Have you ever washed wool before and accidentally popped it in the dryer? Those who know had to learn the hard way – this is the worst possible way to launder your wool items!
According to the Tenth Street Hats blog, using a little bit of Woolite if you’re going to machine wash is your best bet.
Hand washing is always a nice idea, too, as long as you don’t pop that sucker in the dryer.
Do wool hats shrink?
Not to sound like a broken record, but yes. Yes. They do. Banish the dryer.
What color wool hat should I buy?
Naturally, we tend to stick toward darker neutrals in the wintertime.
This is for a couple of reasons:
We wear bronzer because we look like we’re dead in the wintertime (true story) so we like to find colors that disguise any bronzer that may wipe off on the inside. This means no white hats for us
Most frequently, you’re probably wearing a neutral-colored coat in the wintertime. Don’t get us wrong, we love louder prints and colors, but we also opt for an everyday wearable coat. If this is also you (hello) then you may benefit from selecting a neutral hat color
Can I wear a wool hat on top of wet hair?
Remember when your mom told you not to do this? Yeah, we’re still team mom.
At this point in your adult life, don’t put a hat on wet hair mostly because it’ll ruin a perfectly clean head of hair! And you won’t be able to style properly. Trust us on this one.
Why we love it: Sure, technically this is a man’s beanie. But do we really care? We are major suckers for the white font on the hat and think this olive color is the absolute perfect complement to a black winter jacket.
Why we love it: We’re never going to complain about a pop of pink. One reason why we really love this hat is that it’s made of faux fur. We strive to use faux products whenever we can! Also the hat is a bit slouchy instead of sticking straight up (which would be awkward.)
Why we love it: Oh, who doesn’t love a wool patch that is a throwback to older styles? And yes, what’s old is new again. Polo has made a beautiful grey beanie that goes with almost literally anything. We’re obsessed.
Why we love it: OK Rag & Bone, you’re a little late. This video went viral years ago. But you know what? We’re not complaining. We support a beanie that’s an ode to pizza rat. It was an epic moment in history. Well done.
