This hat is hand knit from a heather orange yarn. This hat is not bright enough to consider it "blaze" orange but will allow you to be seen/found in a crowd! It definitely gives the off the 'hunter spirit,' it is just a bit different when you look at it closely. Wool is the fiber of choice for those outdoors and is perfect for keeping your head dry if you have to be out in the snow for extended periods of time. This hat is ideal for men or women. Medium hat will fit a head about 23+/- Large for 24" Hand wash, lay to dry.
