Boreal was designed as the quintessential cabled hat for baby to adult. The Earflaps are shaped with short-rows and have a small cable running the length to the chin. The ultra plush fabric is created with a plethora of cables that twist together, apart and back together creating a fluid design that encapsulates the head in warmth. Boreal means cold and is intended for the nippy winds of fall, the brisk chill of the first snow and the steely cold of January. The sheer quantity of cables create an incredibly stretchy hat that will fit the small wearer for many seasons and is forgiving in sizing for larger heads.
