The ultimate winter cap, Passing Glacier uses a knit-in hem combined with stranded colorwork to make a thick woolly fabric. A luscious and luxurious cashmere/alpaca/silk blend makes up the inside of the hem, while rustic Lettlopi offers durability as well as wind and water resistance. Wear this on your snowy adventures for years to come. This cap works equally well for men and women.
