With the autumn leaves falling and the colder weather vast approaching, I do not cope well in the cold. I was recently introduced to some merino base layer leggings, this came about as I was talking to a friend about how cold I feel when walking my 2 dogs. I walk them twice a day and I used to wear just jeans which did not keep me warm at all. I would feel cold, damp and sometimes uncomfortable, the colder the weather, the colder my legs would feel. The base layers are an absolute revelation, so you can imagine how I felt when I was asked to review the Tilley Extra Fine Merino Beanie Hat.
ABOUT THE HAT
Up until receiving the hat, I wore just a bog standard one, nothing grand or fancy, it was ok but I would still feel a chill. Then I tried out Tilley hat…. OMG! I felt so warm and cozy. It might be extra fine merino but it is brilliant. Really did lock in the warm my head needs and.
As I never heard of the brand before, I had to research it understandably to find out more about it.
The hat is made from 100% Non-mulesing Merino wool the high twist and smooth finish of the Extra fine Merino Beanie is an all season favourite. Merino is naturally anti-microbial and temperature regulating.
I had never heard of Moisture- wicking before so, as most of us do, I googled it. Apparently; this is the process of moving moisture away from your skin during any physical activity). What makes this type of fabric great; is the fact that it can transfer sweat to the fabric’s top layer quickly and at the same time dries out. This in turn, stops the fabric from getting wet or damp. This made sense when I started wearing it and noticed that whilst I was getting very warm, my head was sweating at all. I noticed the difference after the first time wearing it in comparison to my other hat. When taking he other hat off, I would feel damp, my hair would be tangled and felt really sweaty and yuk, most times I would wash my hair to feel cleaner… NOT WITH THE TILLEY BEANIE HAT! Snug As A Bug In A Rug!
They have a fantastic array of colours to choose from, 8 in total which are as follows:-
- Dijon Yellow
- Neon Green
- Army (this is like a dark green combat colour)
The hat comes in one size and has a lot of give in it too. This is great as it can accommodate different size heads. Mine is not small and there is still plenty of room.
