“ Brand: Matalan / Type: Hat „
Recently as you may have noticed (lol) we have been having a cold snap. I love hats though I like trilbys and statement pieces though recently I felt the need to buy some more practical items for my bonce for practical reasons like simply keeping me warm! Just after christmas and me recieving rather a few things from Matalan that I thought were great I felt I should nip to the sale and see what they had on offer and I was pleased when I spotted this lovely, thick looking hat reduced from £5.00 to £2.50 and instantly snapped one up. In grey, black and cream (I wanted cream and got that) these are called beanie hats though to me when they are on they are more like an oversized tea cosy but in a cute way lol! Thickly knitted but very soft to the touch and not one bit heavy these are slightly ribbed on the outside only with a slight mohair texture inside whihch is again soft and warm and not one bit itchy. These only come in one size and that is a generous size and they are made from 71% wool, 17% angora and 12% nylon and they can be washed on a 30c wash though they arenot suitable for tumble drying or ironing. If you opt for the grey beanie you get grey sequins, cream, you get light pinks and white sequins and on the black beanie you get totally black sequins. All are well stitched on and evenly scattered over the hat and I have found none to come off even though I fling it off my head and allsorts. The base of the hat is very slightly elasticated to help keep it in place on your head of course though not too much so and the hat simply is a very nice piece, well made and well finished and really doesn't look one bit cheap or anything like that. For a fiver (at the usual price) I think it is a great buy let alone half price in the sales is quite simply a steal. It keeps my head warm, goes over my ears if I want it to and its not so flash it doesn't go with your everyday wear clothes. You can mix and match it with other winter items very well indeed and now this is my hat of choice so its highly recommended from me as it gives me warmth, style and complete comfort! Only available from Matalan stores and if your fast to the sales you should get it half price too!
