Wool or Cotton — best knitted hat

pins13 | Posted in General Discussion on

Hi,

Open question: which fiber will have the least damage on your hair  for a knitted hat– wool or cotton?

Let me know.

Thanks!

    Hi

    Damage? Do you mean that your hairdo will be flattened when you wear a hat?

    Wool is stretchier, warmer, and lighter in weight; cotton can be stiff and heavy and stretches out of shape if it gets wet.  High quality wool is soft and not scratchy; there's nothing that makes cheap wool less itchy!

    The new wool/acrylic blends are nice; most are machine washable and combine the natural properties of wool with the durability and softness of synthetics.

      Thanks for the info -- I like the idea of Wool and Acrylic.

    It probably depends on the hair type.  Curly hair can get caught in wool fibers and pulled out.
