Features + Benefits

  • The Poko Team considers themselves experts in what it means to be the perfect toque. We are loyal, year-round beanie wearers, and we know the key importance of having the perfect toque in all seasons.
  • One size fits most or all. Forgiving for bigger heads, but still comfortable and cozy for smaller heads.
  • Made of 100% pure Peruvian alpaca, with no synthetic material content. Alpaca is a natural, technical fiber.
  • This style shouts out to its artisan makers with its authentic composition and premium quality craftsmanship, while at the same time providing that modern style we love.
  • This is a Poko #1 best selling hat, and a unisex, favourite year-round accessory for outdoor adventuring, city-dwelling, summer camping, and winter weather.
  • Alpaca has unique thermal properties due to the mircoscopic air pockets found in its fiber, allowing air circulation on warm days and heat insulation on cool days. This prevents sweating in warmer weather, and in colder weather, contains heat for warmth.
  • No animals are harmed in the making of any Pokoloko product. Alpacas are shorn in cycles like sheep according to the seasons.
  • Luxury made to last. Alpaca is exceptionally durable if cared for properly, and more durable than sheep's wool. Non-itchy, lightweight, breathable, windproof, silky-smooth, resistant to piling and matting, non-shrinking, water and stain-resistant.
  • Ultra soft hand feel, luxurious texture. Soft and gentle on the skin. Alpaca is hypoallergenic.
  • Status symbol. In Incan history, alpaca was considered the “fiber of the gods,” and reserved for royalty. Domesticated more than 6000 years ago, the alpaca represents a unique South American textile tradition.
  • Alpaca is one of the Earth's most sustainable fibers. Alpacas have soft, padded feet, not hooves, which minimize soil erosion. They consume relatively less water than other animals, and have efficient digestion, low level feeds, and they only nibble on top of pasture grass without uprooting it. No harsh chemicals are necessary to process alpaca as alpaca contains no lanolin oil.
  • Fairly-traded, eco-friendly, ethically-sourced.

    FAQ's

    Q: What are some fun alpaca facts?
    An alpaca is an intelligent animal of the camelid (camel) family native to the South American Andes. Alpacas come in 22 natural shades, and their luxurious fleece is sheared once a year in Spring. Alpacas are herd animals, their social structure requires they live with other alpacas. An alpaca will be lonely, and may even sicken and die, if isolated. They share a bathroom, alpacas use communal dung piles removed from where they graze. They are musicians, alpacas vocally communicate with a melodic hum to express a spectrum of emotions, from curiosity to mourning.
    Q: Does it hurt the alpaca to get its fleece?
    Alpacas are not harmed while their fleece is harvested for Poko products. In fact, alpaca wool is one of the most ethical fibers available. Our partner farmers take great care in gently shearing the wool and releasing the animal back to roam freely. Alpaca fiber does not contain lanolin, which means alpaca does not require strong chemicals to clean it.
    Q: If I get my alpaca wool hat wet, will the hat still keep me warm?
    Depending on how soaked your Fisherman Hat is, alpaca has an ability to resist water and, even when damp, provide warmth. The hollow fibers of the alpaca fiber trap air in their core which provides enduring insulation.
