Made from 100 percent recycled fabrics it has a worn-in feel and soft touch, no scratchy yarns pestering your scalp just instant comfort. It isn't water proof but it does dry out fast and it does keep your head warm, very warm, but even if you are someone who gets a bit sweaty, the wool wicks your damp noggin nicely.
The cap is constructed with four main panels, a front bill and a rear flap, all of which can be chosen in the colour/pattern of your choice making it fully customisable (as long as they have the fabric!). Every Octopus hat has a secret pocket allowing you to stash some of your hard earned dollar bills. With the cap so close fitting to your head you can't hide much more than a few notes in the secret pocket without it looking like you need a tumour removed.
Snug fitting wool cycling cap ideal for keeping your head warm on cold morning commutes or night time adventures.
