Rated 2 out of 5┬áby mickeychrisman Wanted to love it..
I was so excited to receive this hat, until I tried it on. I was devastated when I put it on and looked in the mirror. The band is SO snug. I even tried to stretch it but it didn't budge. The colors and design are exactly the same as the photo but the fabric used is very itchy. I do not recommend this hat not only because it runs very small, but also because the slouch isn't right either. It sits rather funny.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby aspensnows Love It
I LOVE wintry hats. And am so happy to have added this one to my growing collection. I had this in my cart well over a month ago, but dropped it after reading the negative reviews. But when I stumbled upon it in the store, I figured it was worth trying on...you know, just to reassure myself I made the right decision;)
To be honest, I initially hated it because it popped up awkwardly in back. But my guy friend quickly pointed out my error and tucked in the top corner stitching so it sat down, with a little slouch. It is not baggy like a loose-knit beret. Certainly has a bit more form to it, with the extra material kind of curling down in back. And the band is a little snug, but not unbearably so. Actually, it's what I would expect from a cozy hat. Also, I have a big head and have found it tricky to track down cute hats that are comfy. It has stretch to it, so fits just fine.
Material: 60% Acrylic, 30% Mohair, 10% Wool. So yes, it can be a little scratchy. But once I put it on and leave it, it's not moving and bothering me. I tend to have sensitive skin, but this has been fine thus far.
Flower: I actually love that it has the huge flower off to the side! It's really the reason I was drawn to it. Mine is just solid burgundy, without the tan or brown shown in the photos here. It's not so big that it's overwhelming; and just big enough to be a fun statement:) It may be that they have two different flower designs, so it may be worth a trip to the store to see which you prefer.
Care: Hand wash! Wonderful.
Oh, and it's made in Italy. Love them Italians.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby meandme This hat looks exactly as it does in the picture. I'd hoped it would be a bit looser, but the band is quite tight. It loosens a bit with wear though. It is a bit itchy too, but not too bad. it does fall nicely like a slouchy hat and you can tuck all your hair in it if you want.
