What Size Beanie? Choosing the Right Beanie For You February 09 2017

Selection of Merino Wool Beanies

We get asked all the time about the sizes of our Merino Wool Beanies and what age do they fit, but it can be quite difficult to answer because, as we all know, heads come in different sizes, no matter how old you are!

Our Merino Wool Beanies come in 4 different sizes - Small, Medium, Large and X Large - but even then it’s difficult to assign an age to each size. The reason is because the right size for you is not only to do with the size of your head but it mainly comes down to personal preference as to how snug you like to wear them, and even factors such as the amount of hair you have needs to be taken into account. 

Even so, we’ve sold a lot of beanies in our time and based on that experience we have put together a general guide. If you are still in doubt please feel free to email us at info@snowgrassmerino.ie as we would love to help you further. Also keep in mind that we do offer Free Shipping so it won’t cost you anything extra (and, just between you and me, we’ve also be known to offer Free Returns when the person has emailed us and are still a bit unsure of size) so the upshot of it is that you won’t be out of pocket if you want to return any unwanted sizes.

Size Guide

Small - This size is for babies. From newborns to around 2 years of age.

Medium - This size is from 1-2 years of age up to 5-6 years of age. (Although, we do know a man who bought this size!)

Large - This size is from 4-5 years of age upwards. Many adults buy this size and they fit perfectly.

X Large - This size is mainly for adults but some kids might prefer this size too, especially if they have larger heads (like our boys!)

But, like we said, email us at info@snowgrassmerino.ie and we'll try to guide you as best as we can. Or, even better, if you are in the vicinity of County Dublin then come along and see us on any Sunday at the Marlay Park Market, and then you can try them on yourself there and then. If you can’t make it to Marlay Park and you would still like to try them on then drop us an email at info@snowgrassmerino.ie and we can organise to meet you somewhere. It’s no problem and we enjoy meeting our customers in person anyway.

Hopefully, this guide will give you some idea and if you are still in doubt then please get in contact, we are very happy to help :-)
