Cozy in the cold, comfy in the not-so cold, polished for city life, rugged for woods walks, our Wide Rib Hat + Hand Warmers are always right!

Wide Rib Hat + Hand Warmers | Purl Soho

Knit up in our new Campo, the beauty of this set is its crisp stitch definition; the practicality is its 50% cool organically grown cotton and 50% toasty wool; and the fun is its quick-as-a-wink worsted weight.

Milled in Italy, Campo has the same bucolic ease as the field its named for. Its half cotton-half wool blend lends a casual grace, while its refined spin keeps things tidy. It’s also wonderfully soft and machine washable, too!
