We have already had about a handful of below-freezing nights, as well as our first dusting of snow here in northeastern Pennsylvania. Nothing major yet, but just enough to make us realize that winter will be here in full-force before we know it. When you live in a northern state such as Pennsylvania, winter hats are a necessity, and I was fortunate enough to receive a brand new winter hat from YAK Apparel.
A Boston-based apparel and accessories company specializing in wool hats and silk scarves, YAK Apparel works directly with talented artisans in Nepal, providing them with sustainable, fair wage employment, to bring their products to more than 2,000 stores (and counting!) in the United States alone. Created with natural wool, fleece, and faux fur, YAK Apparel’s hats are made from natural, sustainable materials, which is so important to anyone passionate about being kind to the planet.
There are so many great colors and styles of hats to choose from, and I ultimately decided on the red/orange earflap pom-pom trapper hat. I am absolutely thrilled with this hat! The red, orange, and browns make it perfect for chilly fall days, but the faux fur lining and accents around the front of the hat and in the pom-poms bring it right into winter.
The faux fur pom-poms on the top of the hat and at the bottom of the tassels that hang on either side are super cute without it coming off as being a child’s hat. The weight of it as well as the lining and earflaps keep your ears and head warm and toasty, even on very cold nights, and it’s very comfortable.
In addition to the awesome pom-pom trapper hats like the one I received, YAK Apparel also has head wraps, beanies, fleece-lined hats, and other variations of faux fur-lined hats with tassels for both women and men.
