A warm light-weight double layered beanie with a low profile, the Bergans of Norway Varde beanie is ideal for use during cold spring or autumnal weather and for dynamic activities in winter.
The Varde uses the same combination and ratio of wool (70%) and acrylic (30%) as the chunkier Tine beanie which is more of classic cold weather beanie intended for severe winter weather (weighing 35g more than the Varde). The Varde beanie is ideal for dynamic winter use and to keep you warm when static on cold summer nights and in chilly spring and autumnal conditions, providing ample coverage for the ears and upper neck.
The Varde uses a double layered construction, has no separate lining and packs down very small. With a slightly closer fit than most traditional winter beanies, the Varde's low profile makes it an ideal, versatile layering piece.
A handy addition to any pack where additional warmth may be required or to supplement existing headwear. If you're looking for a light-weight all-rounder, the Varde Beanie may well be for you.
Acrylics are generally characterised by having high loft and resilience. The fibres are durable, soft, and remain resilient on contact with moisture. Acrylic fibres are hydrophobic, so don't absorb sweat; instead moisture is pushed away from the source to the surface where it evaporates. Acrylic is lightweight, warm and quick drying.
Wool is an excellent insulator with one of the highest insulation to weight ratios of any natural or man-made fibre. It insulates when wet, it's breathable, moisture wicking, temperature regulating, resilient and elastic (maintains shape over time). It doesn't retain odours and will freshen with a simple airing. The outer layer of wool fibres have a high concentration of fatty acids with anti-bacterial properties.
Acrylic and wool each have properties ideal for a warm winter hat. Combining the two materials aids fibre stability, elasticity (maintains shape), loft, durability and enhances insulation. The warmth and wicking capabilities of wool are retained, while the acrylic keeps the weight down, resilience up and reduces moisture absorption and thus quickens drying time.
This will fit most head sizes, but if your measurement is 60cm+ this might be a little on the tight side on initial use (but will stretch to fit once worn for a short period of time). You can see more images of the Varde Beanie in use in Scramble's review.
