Product Description

This classic-style Sherpa winter hat has polar fleece lined earflaps and hat band for itch-free warmth. They’re hand-crafted in Nepal, made of the finest lambs wool. Each Tashi Hat has been individually carded and knit in the valley of Kathmandu, Nepal. The Sherpa Tashi was one of our most popular hats in 2007, and this season Sherpa has added some new colors to the line. These hats are a Powderfin favorite…they have all the warmth of wool, with the added comfort of fleece lined ears and hatband. For an everyday winter hat, the Tashi is tough to beat. Sherpa Adventure Gear employs local Sherpas in their office in Katmandu, and contracts with Sherpa artisans (some of whom are their own cousins) to create the beautiful, hand-made Sherpa wool hats found on Powderfin Outdoors. Sherpa Adventure Gear was inspired by sheer chance in 2003. Back then, Tashi Sherpa and his family owned an import clothing business. In May of that year, while walking down the streets of Manhattan, a magazine cover caught his eye. The craggy lines of an anciently familiar face staring back belonged to none other than his Uncle Ang Gyalzen Sherpa. It was a commemoration issue for the 50th anniversary of the first ascent of Everest. Tashi was amazed and grateful to discover that his uncle was one of the original Sherpa veterans on that celebrated expedition in 1953.
