M&S Collection Cashmilon™ Beret Hat
Great style, not so great fabric
I don't see why this Cashmilon has been trademarked, it's a quite ordinary acrylic and acrylic really isn't a good fibre. It's warm enough for not too cold temperatures, but a little below zero acrylic just doesn't cut it.
However, the style, fit and texture of this hat is brilliant. It's annoyingly difficult to find soft, somewhat slouchy berets this season, and I'm overjoyed to have found one that works so well. If the same style had been available in wool I would have stocked up!
I bought this in both black and red. The colour of the red is quite like the colour in the picture - more of a raspberry tone than bright red.

I wear hats all through winter & like my beret & beanie styles to be quite a baggy fit. This beret is perfect in fit (not too loose or tight around the head) softness & quality. If like me, you have lots of long hair, you can bundle your hair up in this beret too..no problem. Bargain price. Bought in cream & pink - the pink is more like mauve-pink to me. Will buy in red & black too before they're all gone!

I bought this hat in black and there was a 20% off offer on at the time, so for just £4 this hat was an absolute bargain. Have worn it for a walk out in the cold weather and as well as looking good, it kept my head and ears nice and warm. Would highly recommend, even for £5 it is fantastic value.

Stylish and Warm
I liked this so much I bought Pale Pink, Black and Cream, great price, very warm but don't take up much space if you want to keep it in a pocket or bag, also as they aren't heavy they don't give you a hat head!!
