Earflap Hat Maori Koru is a warm woollen beanie hand knitted in Nepal using New Zealand wool. This hat has long ear flaps on either side to keep not only your head warm, but your ears will be toasty too. There are many colours to choose from. Earflap Hat Maori Koru also has the option of lined or unlined. The lined hat is warmer. The un lined is cheaper. Ear flap hats are great for the outdoors especially in windy conditions as they can be tied securely around the neck.
Wool is a wonderful product to wear as it breathes and stays warm even if it becomes damp. It is great for the outdoors. Our woollen products are imported from Nepal and hand knitted by Nepalese woman. In buying this product you are supporting the Nepalese in this cottage industry and at this price you actually would be hard pushed to knit it for the same cost, in terms of wool expense and labour. It is wonderful to think the wool has gone as a raw product to Nepal, been hand knitted by people way less fortunate than New Zealanders and sent back as a finished product. I feel good about this product and love that it helps those with less than us!!
