Black Yak Alness

From the tops of mountains to nestled in your sleeping bag, it’s amazing how much warmer you feel with a woolly hat pulled down over your ears — especially with fleecy ear flaps.

Made using 100% sheep’s wool in a patterned knit, the Alness is half-lined with microfleece for a soft feel against your skin. Ear flaps with plaited toggles give you extra coverage when the temperatures plummet and can even be tied beneath your chin when the wind gets up.

Nature’s great insulator, wool makes a great material for keeping your noggin warm. Plus, it’s highly breathable and odour resistant, so you can wear it more and wash it less.

Each woolly hat from Black Yak is hand-knitted in Nepal. As well as being certified fair trade, a proportion of Black Yak’s sales go back into the communities that make them.
