The Southlander Hand Knit Wool Beanie Hat
Inspired by the rolling hills of the Norwegian South, the Southlander features a nicely rounded top, and makes it the essential explorer cap for your every day carry. It’s a beanie for the one who likes the tested and tried classics.
Our aim is to honor handcrafting skills passed down through generations, and to reclaim that space of no-stress that gives a worker the ability to perform his or her best while enjoying the craft.
Quality and Comfort
The moment you feel the hat you know that it is a high quality piece of gear. It looks small when you first see it but stretches to comfortably fit your head and keeps your head warm the entire time you are outdoors. I couldn’t be more pleased with the purchase.
Stylish and comfy!
My favourite beanie
I have Southlander blue hat and I like it. It’s well made, stylish, cosy and very warm. Probably will get another one in different colour!
Perfect wool hat!
In a perfect world, my own mother would have knitted this hat for me, but none of the hats I have gotten from her has had this style and look (don’t tell her that). To be able to buy a hat, this good looking, that someone elses mother has hand-knitted, is as close to perfect as I can get. No itching, perfect size and shape, it only looks better with use, and of course the beautiful red color! (Yes, you need to get the red one first!)
Accidentally Wes Anderson
I love this cosy hat, really comfortable and warm. And of course it’s an added bonus that I look like a character from the life aquatic!
My go to hat
Hands down my fav. I personally own 4 of this model. Which says a lot about the product. The only way to get your hands on a hat of this quality, is to find yourself a Norwegian grandmother or just buy for RHF. Seriously the best.
This traditionally handcrafted knit cap is a true gem! The red color provides a nice pop of color and goes very well with everything from raw denim to outdoorsy clothing. And what I personally like very much with this particular model is it’s small size, which is perfect for us with quite small heads 😏.
A must have
Stylish, classic. Iconic
love my beanies (both)
I got one southlander, as well as a custom knit beanie in merino wool and dyed with tumeric from mom’s market. I love them both, though they do have a very different feel. The yellow merino wool one feels like a looser knit and the yard is a bit thinner, which is honestly nicer in slightly warmer northern california days. The regular is a bit thicker and not quite as loose a knit. When I got them I was suprised, they’re a little looser knit than other hats of the same style that I’ve gotten and also seemingly a little smaller, but they stretch and look great. They’re a bit pricey, but I totally get that they’re handmade, which I think is great and is worth the knowledge that real people are actually making them.
It only gets better
I’ve owned my Red Southlander for a bit more than two years now, and the longer I have it, the more I fall in love with it.
Not to say I didn’t love it immediately, cause that would be a lie, but the more I wear it, the more it just feels like an extension of myself. The way it fits perfectly to my head is unlike any other beanie I’ve ever owned, I sometimes even forget it’s up there!
I’ve realized this hat only gets better with time and is versatile like no other. My favorite memories while wearing it range from days spent in the mountains to cutting hair at the barber shop I work at and some hearty urban exploring. It’s meant for every adventure.
If I haven’t said enough yet, my friends really like it too 🙂
True to description
The Southlander has a great shape, it is not too thick, yet still warm. Mine is still a bit tight, but I expect it to expand the more I use it. Would have liked it to be a bit longer because I like to have it over my ears, while now it is just partly covering. True to color on website (I have Olive color).
Made of wool and really cool!
This was a gift, and absolutely loved the feel and look of it. Would definitely get more in other colors.
This has become my go-to beanie. Super comfy, keeps my head warm (obviously) and as a photographer, it’s great for making my subjects pop and stand out in the photos.
