announcement by Alpkit
No matter whether you are a burly bloke with a shaven head or a cute chick with flowing locks, there is a good chance that you will get a cold head sometime during the winter. Black Yak hats are knitted, by hand, in wool, with needles to provide the perfect cold weather protection for your noggin. Part of the beauty of these hats is that they are not all identical. The very nature of 'hand made' means that there may be slight differences between the picture on the web site and the goods that you receive.
