This is a total meh at first glance. However, it’s a good price for 5 hats and I know there are lots of displaced persons who would love to be given a nice new clean hat. When my town burned down and most of us lost everything, people donated lots of their old clothes graciously. But let me tell you… new underwear beats used underwear every time. Also, now I don’t have to learn how to knit.
@courteousblock I got these last time. they’re acrylic, so they’re itchy, smelly, don’t breathe, and will give you static cling on your hair. stick to natural fibers like cotton or wool in both hats and literally any other context. at $3/hat though I guess I got what I paid for
@courteousblock I got the women’s last time. For the price I was pleased. The colors let me coordinate with what I’m wearing and there is enough “slouch” in the women’s hat to tuck in most of my long, thick hair and still appear stylish AND keep my ears warm. Wool makes me itch so I’m OK with acrylic. I got both color options and don’t need ten hats so donated some to the local women’s shelter. They come in individual packaging so it’s also good for splitting up a five pack for gifting.
That last photo is maybe the best use of these? Actually it might snow here on Monday for the first time in years. Ha! I have a ice scraper and brush from living 3 hours or so from the Canadian border before moving here. I guess I need to fish it out and put it in the car. I don’t even know if they sell them here.
