Rated4out of5bypracticalmagicianfromwarm and friendly!This is one toasty beanie! But I fear it won't last. .. The tassels and pom-pom are cute, but they are trying very hard to leave the hat. The yarn is super soft, but snags on everything. And the shedding everybody talked about? It's a thing, and it made an absolute mess of my black fleece Jacket. And it hates zippers.
I'm forgiving most of these shenanigans because in spite of everything, it's a nice warm hat. The superficial features seem to lack longevity, but it keeps me warm when the weather turns chilly. It's hard to give a bad review to something so functional

Rated2out of5byVB12fromWarm and FuzzyI do like this hat, but the loose threads get in my eyes. It's such a lovely hat, good looking and comfortable but I'm constantly trying to pull the loose soft and hard to find threads out of my eyes.

Rated2out of5byyogiLaurenfromGreat hat but sheds like CRAZY!First, the pros:
This hat fits very well, is quite warm, and the style is great! I typically wear a L/XL in hats and this fits well without being tight. The ear flaps are beneficial in not-too-windy conditions.
The hat sheds all over my clothes. I tried washing the hat in hopes that it might remove the majority of the loose fibers...but to no avail it still sheds everywhere. Imagine wearing an SPF lip balm and developing furry lips while wearing this! And if you own a black jacket (and purchase the off-white one), forget about it.
I would otherwise rate this hat 5 stars if not for the shedding. If you happen to know some secret way of keeping it from shedding, go for it! :)
