Kathy was so wonderful, she made me a hat that matched my custom flip mittens, with a different thumb. I am going to Alaska, and they had to fit over liners. With her help, I measured, and then measured again for the matching hat. I have to say they are beautiful, in the color I wanted! (gray, not originally available) And the fit is perfect!! I am so happy with them, I LOVE the hat, and the customer service is awesome. If you want warm, you want alpaca. If you want alpaca, you want to buy from this shop!! Thank you, Kathy! P.S. I'm back from Alaska - my head was warm, my hands were warm (except when taking off mitts to take photos, but quickly warmed up) I wish I lived somewhere colder, so I could wear them more! I had a fantastic time and LOVE this hat and mittens!
