I may sound like my mother here, but you really should be wearing a hat when it’s cold. Regardless of the possibly untrue myth of losing a certain percentage of your body heat through your head, hats will keep your head and ears warm. And that’s an important fact. When looking for a good winter hat, it’s wise to invest in one made out of materials that will actually keep you warm. That means investing in wools like merino or cashmere. We’ve rounded up a few of the best to make sure that your noggin doesn’t freeze.
Goodthreads Men's Marled Beanie
This fisherman’s style knit beanie is made from a cotton, nylon, and wool blend and comes in 11 different colors. The single fold allows you to keep your ears warm, without having to pull your hat down.
Carhartt Men's Acrylic Watch Hat A18
The classic beanie, to me, is the Carhartt Watch Hat. It’s made from 100% acrylic and it was designed to keep construction workers warm on the job, so you know it’ll keep you warm, too.
FURTALK Womens Winter Knit Slouchy Beanie
If you’re looking for a beanie with a little fun, look no further. This slouchy beanie comes in a bunch of colors, with a corresponding poof at the end. And that poof is removable, in case you’re not feeling so fluffy one day.
The Cashmere Rib Beanie
Made from a mixture of 95% Grade-A cashmere and elastane, this warm beanie will look stylish with any outfit while keeping your head from getting too cold.
Men’s Rich Cotton Beanie Hat
This 100% merino wool beanie comes in 16 different colors and at this price, you can get more than one to go with any outfit or piece of outerwear you own.
Acne Studios Pansy N Face Hat
This is the classic New York City beanie. It’s thick and chunky and has Acne’s signature emoji applique front and center. The wide cuff allows you to pull it down over your ears easily.
Beams Plus Rib Cashmere & Silk Beanie
The cashmere keeps things warm while the silk keeps things soft. Choose from a classic gray or a deep navy hat to wear cuffed or uncuffed.
Twist of Cosy Knit Beanie
At first glance, this hat may look like any other beanie, but it’s got a bit of a twist. The curved ribbed upper adds visual interest to an otherwise classic, merino wool beanie. Choose from three different colors.
