Women’s stocking caps and beanies are an absolute necessity when the cold weather rolls in. Headed out for a day of skiing or a wintertime walk? Make sure that beanie or stocking cap is tucked in your jacket pocket before you head out the door. Looking for some new cold weather headwear? A soft, toasty merino wool cap or beanie hat makes an excellent option. Need maximum warmth? A fleece beanie or stocking cap will provide excellent protection from the cold. Also consider finding a beanie hat or watch cap with ear flaps, especially good when the wind picks up. Not sure about brands? Women’s beanies and stocking caps from Columbia Sportswear, Outdoor Research, SmartWool and Icebreaker are all lovely.
