I have always hated wearing a hat. I remember as a kid freezing my ears off in the dead of winter because I refused to wear one. I couldn’t stand the itchy feeling and how sweaty my head and hair would get. But as I have gotten older, I have given in because now I can’t stand being cold.
Fortunately for me I came across an amazing toque that allows my head to breathe and the soft material doesn’t make me itch. In a previous blog on fall fashion, I wrote a bit about the Hemp Slouchy Toque from Effort’s Eco-Essentials. I think it deserves more attention!
Slouchy toques have become a trend in headwear, and they aren’t going out of style any time soon! Effort’s Eco-Essentials has created the perfect eco-friendly toque for fashion and comfort. Made of hemp and organic cotton, this hat allows by head to breathe. Because hemp is thermo-regulating it keeps my head warm in colder weather and cool in hotter. This is awesome because I can wear it outside and don’t have to take it off when I come indoors. No more hat head! I don’t have that sweaty scratchy feeling that a wool or acrylic hat would give me. It is perfect for all seasons.
Hemp is naturally anti-microbial. It doesn’t absorb odours, so I don’t need to worry about having a stinky hat or hair for that matter! Hemp gets stronger and softer with every wash, so I know these toques will last for years to come.
The relaxed look and feel of the unisex toque is perfect to add the finishing touch to any outfit. It has the right combination of stretch and slouch! The stylish hat comes in a range of colours so of course I had to have a few. I have it in the most popular colour, black, but this fall I have purchased the plum and olive which really make my green eyes pop!
I love the fact that hemp is environmentally friendly. It doesn’t require chemical or pesticides to grow. It requires very little water. Hemp also has the ability to absorb heavy metals and pollutants from the soil as it grows. I don’t have to worry if the hat does go out of style (which it won’t). It is biodegradable unlike a cheap acrylic hat.
For those of you not ready for the slouchy look, Effort’s also has a more fitted hemp toque.
Hats off to Effort’s Eco-Essentials for providing me with yet another great addition to my wardrobe.
Efforts Eco Essentials has a wide variety of hemp and bamboo clothing styles to choose from for both men and women at very reasonable prices. They also have the fabrics for sale as well, and they will ship anywhere in North America.
