This is a nice hat, slightly small sized, with pretty colors. Unfortunately the maker is convinced that we all want to be billboards for their products and wear a garish white label with their logo smack in the front of the hat. I'm a seamstress so I took my seam ripper to the label which was sewn onto an otherwise knitted hat--and with a small amount of effort the billboard was removed.

This is a really comfortable and attractive hat, but the description doesn't mention that the hat is only 50% wool until you dig into the specs. In clothes that I am going to sweat a lot in, I prefer them to be all wool since wool doesn't hold onto odors post-washing like synthetic fibers do.

Swix makes really attractive hats and not in China! Not in the US either, but at least in Canada. They are thin, tightly woven and perhaps too small for a big head or someone with a lot of hair. I like the soft interior band because wool hats can be itchy around the face. I bought three different Swix hats because I liked the designs so much. Only frugality kept me from buying one of each for me and several friends.
