100% Alpaca beanie knitted winter hat black Misericordia
Originally, the beanie was a blue-collar working hat, worn by laborers like welders or mechanics who needed to keep their hair back but for whom a brim would be an unnecessary obstruction. Some hat historians believe schoolchildren began wearing skullcaps in imitation of their working-class fathers. The baseball cap evolved from this kind of beanie, with the addition of a brim to block the sun.
The name "beanie" probably comes from the early-20th century slang term "bean," meaning "head."
Keep the cold at bay with Misericordia's knit beanie.
Here is our midweight beanie hat featuring a lovely front braided pattern, suitable for both men and women made of an extremely warm Alpaca blend.
This soft and original beanie has been knitted in Peru. Obtained from a thick thread, this accessory will keep you warm during the Autumn and Winter months thanks to the Alpaca yarn it is made of.
Today there is a desire to get back to basics and thus to small-to-medium-scale production and well-considered and controlled consumption.
Resist the mantra of speed that violently leads to losing oneself. Resist the illusion of something new at any cost. As Misericordia’s does, plenty of up-and-coming designers are spreading this message too. Often they’re forsaking traditional retail schedules and creating staples made to last and, often times, available year-round.
Our yarn was made to be used and loved. It is fashionable, functional, and meant to be enjoyed and appreciated every day!
