They say that 80% of your body's heat exits through your head. Protect it with a beanie. Sometimes referred to as a tuque or a knit cap, beanies come in a variety of styles and shapes. Typically a knit material, their blend can vary from acrylic or wool to a higher end cashmere knit. They are meant to be tight fitting to the head but can be loose on the top of its crown. Some beanies are cuffed around the edges or have added earflaps with chin straps.
Beanies are one of the most universally popular forms of hats. Stereotypically associated with dockworkers or sailors, this hat popularity extends far beyond the maritime world. Main celebrities have been filmed or photographed over the years in these hats. Michael Nesmith of The Monkees was well known for wearing beanies in their television show.
