The purple hat I received is two-toned.
I ordered this "Dahlia Women's Angora Blend Beanie Hat - Spiral Twist Pattern - Dual Layer" in black and liked it enough to order it in purple. It's a beautiful deep purple, but interestingly, the purple hat I received is two-toned: the sewn-on band is a different shade of purple than the rest of the hat. Probably a different dye lot of yarn? It's still attractive, just unexpected, based on the item photos which show a solid color (and the black one I purchased is not two-toned). Also, the title of this page when I purchased this hat says "Dahlia Women's ANGORA BLEND Beanie Hat - Spiral Twist Pattern - Dual Layer" [emphasis added], BUT when I added the item to my cart and here on my orders list, it is titled "Dahlia Women's Fluffy Twisted Beret ACRYLIC Knit Beanie Hat" [emphasis added]. I reported this discrepancy to BTA-MALL. The tag on the inside of the hat just says "angora blend" without any percentages or indication of what the blend is. Whether this hat is or isn't angora, it's a nice weight and thickness to be warmer than most of the acrylic hats of this style that I've ordered and returned in the last month. And even though it wasn't "Prime," it arrived relatively quickly.

So Soft and Affordable
I took a chance ordering a hat that looked soft and pretty in the picture, but I was not disappointed. It is the most comfortable, warm hat I've ever owned (and I'm from the east coast, so I've bought a lot of winter hats). The color is rich, the elastic is just firm enough to hold it in place without hurting my ears or making a bothersome impression across my forehead. I get compliments every time I wear it, and people ask if they can touch it!

Smaller than expected
This hat is smaller than I expected. If you're looking for as much 'slouch' in the hat as the picture shows, it's not the hat for you. It is beautiful and soft and it arrived in a timely manner so there is no problem with service. This would be great for anyone looking for a classic beret size, I just wanted something bigger.

Not What I Expected
This beret is a fluffy and wisted knit just as described but the picture itself threw me off. Although it is described as fluffy and knitted, I was expecting to receive one that looks like the picture itself which kind of gives off the look of a woven material. I was buying this for my daughter and she loves it but if I would have known this beanie was not what it appears to be as shown on the picture, I wouldn't have paid this much for it. I actually seen and bought beanies just like this one but in other colors for less than half the price of this one. I didn't know the actual piece would look and feel like this but I can't return it because it was a gift for my daughter's birthday and she loves it. Everything worked out after all but it was just not what I expected.

Great flattering purple hat.
This hat is a deep purple. It fits my head well, comes above or below your ears depending on how you adjust it. It's shape is flattering to my profile. I haven't worn it outside yet, but in trying it on it felt warm. I recommend this hat and am pleased with my purchase.

I love this hat. I wore it today. I have a head full of naturally curly hair and I try to get it into the hat without sqashing the curl. Its not that it is a little small for everyone. Once I get my hair stuffed in there it looks great.

would not recommend as a gift for this reason
Cute Beret...trendy, HOWEVER: although this arrived packaged in a separate reusable drawstring bag, this hat hat fuzz and lint all over it, most likely from manufacturing. The large clumps of fuzz were maroon color and the hat is black, so unless you want to spend 15 minutes de fuzzing it....would not recommend as a gift for this reason. Looks cheap because of the fuzz and not a clean finish.

I adore this hat!
It completely meets my expectations! The color (red) is very true to the photo on BTA-MALL, the material is soft, not at all scratchy (I am sensitive or downright allergic to anything with wool in it touching my skin) & it is soft, stretchy (not too much, just enough to be able to pull it down over my ears if I want to) & well, just gorgeous. Trying to decide what other colors I want & get them ordered/delivered (BTA-MALL's Prime 2-day free delivery is excellent) in time for cooler weather.

For average to small heads only
I loved this beret - it was so soft and warm. The problem was that the band that goes around your head is much too tight. I had a headache after wearing it for 30 minutes. If you have a small head, this is a great product. It will definitely keep your head warm.

Cute and Comfy
I love it! I was worried my head might be a bit big for it (MtF) but nope it fits lovely and keeps my hair out of my face when doing photography. It's also really comfy. Let's put it this way... I ordered this hat again in black this time and might grab the others at some point too.
