Wool makes a great Rain Hat. "The secret of wool lies in the structure of its fibers, which absorb moisture, insulate against heat and cold, resist flame, and maintain their resilience"*. "The surface of wool is water resistant; its interior is highly absobent. In fact wool is the most hydrophilic of all natural fibers, absorbing as much as 30% of its weight without feeling wet to the touch"**. This Pendleton Wool Check is especially suited for long walks in the rain, being a medium weight wool; while the cotton band and lining allows for comfortable wear as days grow warmer in the spring.

The best way to determine your hat size is to measure your head with a cloth sewing tape. More on this subject can be found on our Ordering Information page. We're here at the Hat Ranch most of the time, so if you have any questions please call us during regular business hours, Pacific Standard Time, phone 1(888) 930 4287 or email is good too.
