Why Merino Wool?
Core Spun Technology
Core Spun yarn provides extra durability while still offering merino's properties next to the skin. The nylon inner core is wrapped with Merino Wool and a touch of spandex for stretch.
Minus33 Merino Wool regulates the amount of moisture on your skin by absorbing any moisture or sweat on your body. Then, the absorbed moisture evaporates out of the fabric into the atmosphere.
Merino Wool fibers naturally reject any bacteria in moisture or sweat as it is wicked away, so foot fungus and smelly odor will not be a problem while wearing our products.
Insulates When Wet
Wool will absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet or clammy. If you do get wet, wool will insulate you better than cotton or polyester materials.
Don’t worry about sunburn on a sunny day summiting a peak. Lightweight layers have a UPF rating of 25. Midweight and Expedition have a UPF rating of 50+.
Merino Wool has a low environmental footprint and naturally returns to the elements. Shear a merino sheep in the morning, and in the afternoon they’re happily nibbling their way towards renewing next season’s clip.

I wrote a raving review on 12/30/20 because I LOVED the previous version of this beanie which was the best merino beanie I found (way better than other well-known merino brands). I just bought another (March 2023) to stock up because you should always buy more of your favorite items before they change it......... New version still has excellent, very comfy wool and all the performance attributes of merino. But the redesign has 3 problems: 1. the new lighter grey color is not as good as the old darker grey, but this is individual preference and not a huge deal. 2. biggest issue - the old version fit me perfectly, and I have a larger than average head, but the new one is best suited for people with incredibly elongated, tall skulls who like about 2.75 inches (I measured) of extra beanie poofing up and flopping around above their head, even when the back is pulled down low. Who was the model for this design? 3. The white tag/label sewn into the seam on the black side is hard to cut out without damaging the wool so you're left with the stub of a white tag on the black wool. I don't see a tag stub on my 3 old ones. So I should have ordered more before the redesign. Still a great beanie, just very weird size proportions and not sure I'd wear this new one if people will see me. (My wife laughs when she sees how tall it is.) Maybe it's good if you want a beanie-style, merino wool tall chef's hat???

I’m always looking for an very like thin hat. This is the best fit of the many I have tried. It covers my ears and keeps them covered even under my bike and ski helmets. I bought a second as soon as I saw how good the fit was.
Thank you for leaving us such a great review. The Reversible Shade Beanie is so versatile and we are happy that it works for you whenever you need it!
Perfect weight to keep you warm but not hot on a cool night in the woods and keeps the mosquitoes out of your ears
Thanks for the great review! We are happy to hear that you're enjoying the quality and function of your Minus33 Woolverino Reversible Shade Beanie.
Great hat for not wanting bulky headwear. Wool is warm and works so get this hat!
I’m happy with both the beanie and the gloves I bought! Yay!
