Ski, hike, or winter beach walk ready, Collins by Sloane Rosenthal is our interpretation of the essential winter beanie. Made in squishy, soft Forge, this hat is worked in five of our classic H+W colorways. It’s perfect for any H+W bits leftover from other projects or the best excuse to play with our colors for your own version!
