The Sunset Slouch is inspired by brilliant California sunsets and the laidback lifestyle of coastal NorCal. This lightweight hat is designed for nearly all-season wear, especially if you live in an area where the temperature drops significantly after sunset.

The Sunset Slouch is the perfect simple knit with a huge color payoff, using nine colors in the Hudson + West Co. palette.
