Incredibly soft grey merino wool beanie with a wide ribbed knit pattern and speckled finish. Lightweight, warm and agile, with the stealth and elusiveness of a cunning feline.

Made with a merino wool blend, the Merino Gato is an incredibly soft, lightweight, wide rib knit beanie with a reversible cuff—our finest soft lid ever.

Merino wool is a natural fiber grown by Merino sheep, renowned for their fine, soft wool and their ability to thrive in extreme climates. The Merino sheep grow long hair (surprise, surprise) with a natural crimp, yielding a higher loft wool that stretches easily in garments.

Because it’s super soft and fine, merino wool is especially comfortable next to your skin, wicking moisture without absorbing odors and without itching. Lightweight and amazingly warm, it’s the ideal performance material for outdoor activities like shredding gnar.

With a reversible stitched label embroidered with the bound shears, you can flip the cuff up for double-thick maximum warmth...

...or flip the cuff down for a thinner, sleeker fit.

A wide ribbed knit pattern and speckled finish blends a classic appearance with modern steez, El Merino Gato is slim enough to wear under a helmet, yet warm enough for freezing temperatures.

Our Pricing Philosophy

We know our products aren’t the cheapest out there, so we wanted to share our pricing philosophy with you.

  1. Great Products. We do all we can to offer you the best products possible and we stand behind them. In most cases we’ve developed or formulated products ourselves through research, learning, testing and improving, and we don’t sell anything we don’t use ourselves regularly.

    If you’re ever not happy with your purchase we’ll do everything we can to make sure you are a raving fan.

  2. Great Brand. Since day one we have been about the content and the community.

    When you make a purchase from The Longhairs, you’re buying more than just a product: you’re buying into what it means to have long hair: the idea, the lifestyle, the fresh content we publish every week...you’re supporting the movement.

  3. Great Purpose. Since day one The Longhairs has advocated for a greater purpose than just selling hair ties. In addition to advocating for hair equality and standing up for the little guys, we donate $1 for every order to Children With Hair Loss.

    That means every time you purchase a product from The Longhairs you are helping provide a quality hair replacement for a child who can’t grow their own hair.

We hope this helps you better understand how we price our products and feel great about purchasing from The Longhairs. We welcome any questions you may have.

As just two bros who set out to make an idea real, we’ve learned it’s really damn hard to run a business, which makes earning you as our customer the most important thing we can do.

With Gratitude,

El Moreno & El Rubio

You’re familiar with our pricing philosophy, and why we price our products the way we do.

However, we understand the cost of shipping can be prohibitive. That’s why we’re offering a deal to help mitigate the shipping cost to you.

For a trial period we are offering a sticker pack available for purchase. When you purchase a Sticker 6-Pack you automatically qualify for free shipping (please see limitations below).

We realize you’re still paying for an additional product, but at least you’re getting more for your money—and you won’t have to pay for shipping out of pocket.

If you don’t think this is a good deal, or if you don’t like stickers (who doesn’t like stickers?), or if you’d rather pay for shipping...that’s fine. Simply don’t add the sticker pack and have it your way.

By mitigating the cost of shipping we hope you’ll feel even better about purchasing from The Longhairs. We welcome any questions or suggestions you may have.

With Gratitude,
The Longhairs Shipping Department

*At the moment this offer is not valid for international customers. You guys are important to us and we’re still working on a better shipping solution for you.

**Free shipping offer does not apply to subscription orders, reason being we’re already offering a steep discount and can’t afford to also pay for shipping.
