This is a fun addition to this season's fun chunky knit hats, but would be a happy addition to any hat or accessory. The very realistic looking fur is actually a high quality acrylic that is stuffed with polyurethane foam to keep its shape. Perhaps the coolest part of this pompom is the way it's attached to the hat - by way of a heavy duty snap! The receiving end gets sewn to to the top of the hat (or other accessory) and that snaps to the positive end already attached to the pompom. That way it can quickly and easily removed to wash the hat, or should the day just not warrant a jaunty accent.
