Alpaca Hat with Ear Flaps - Chullo Alpaca Hat
An Andean essential
People who need to stay active during cold winter months find alpaca hats in a chullo style with earflaps to be a necessity. Since the majority of a person’s body heat escapes through their heads, a good hat is imperative for comfort in cold temperatures. The chullo hats' ear flaps, offset for a natural fit, protect the ears. And, the braided ties can be secured under the chin to keep them in place even in extremely windy conditions.
The outer layer is knit from a blend of 50% alpaca and 50% acrylic so that they can handle snowflakes galore without shrinking or bunching. The inside is fleece lined for extra warmth. Combined, these two toasty, durable layers look good year after year and can withstand multiple washings. These chullo hats are available in a variety of colorful patterns as well as solid colors.
Perfect for hiking, skiing, snow shoeing, winter camping, mountain climbing or even just walking the dog in the cold and snow, Chullo hats help people stay active despite falling temperatures. And, similar to SmartWool®, alpaca wool has moisture-wicking properties that keep wearers dry and comfortable – so they can keep braving the elements.
They’re light weight, breathable, soft, durable and warm - an affordable, high-quality outdoor-wear staple.
Not only do Sirius Alpacas' lined chullos protect sensitive ears from wintery winds with soft ear flaps, they also feature built-in theft deterrent tie-on laces that keep your hat fastened securely to your head.
