The dimpled fabric of this hat, combined with the insulating properties of the yak fiber in this yarn, ensures you will stay toasty warm during even the coldest of days. The folded brim provides an elegant finish while helping the hat stay put and provides extra insulation over your ears.

P.S. Fossetta means “dimple” in Italian.
