Move over beanies, get out of the way, earmuffs. This season, if you’re suffering from a chilly crown the only thing you’ll want to don is a warm and cosy knitted hood.

Knitted hoods have been climbing the ranks these past few winters, encouraging more and more shoppers to swap their hats for this cosier design. As a hood/scarf hybrid, the knitted balaclava offers insulation that other hats and beanies can lack for those extra chilly winter days

Although it is currently being re-emerged as a new trend, the balaclava has a deeply-rooted history in winter-wear. First popularised in the 1800s, the balaclava was created to warm soldiers throughout long winters at war in the north. Fast forward and the style has ebbed and flowed out of favour, eventually coming back into mainstream popularity today, with many embracing the knitted hood in their cold-weather rotation. 

A practical solution to harsh British weather, influencers and celebrities have been frequently styling the hood under thick jumpers and tailored coats, while designers across high-street and designer labels have rushed to create their perfect iterations, in winter-ready fabrics such as wool and cashmere. So, if you’re looking for a cosy winter accessory to see you through the harshest days, scroll on to discover the best knitted hoods to shop now.
