Tailored to guard against the frigid Canadian winters, fashion label Kyi Kyi’s beanie line is sure to be a popular hit for the yuletide season’s online shopping blitz.

Made with pizazz, and high quality materials, the stylish pom pom topped, fleece-lined beanies keep heads and ears cozily warm amid plummeting temperatures.

GayCalgary was gifted with the Kyi Kyi Classic Fox Fur Beanie in a deep chocolate brown. There are ten other colours to choose this item in, including ivory, navy, taupe and olive.

Not into fur? Don’t worry: the company offers a faux fur pom pom topped beanie line that "looks almost too good to be fake", and comes at a lower price point.

Overall the product is pleasing: it looks good; the giant fox fur pom pom is soft and decadent; and it’s warm. The materials feel durable, and it’s always a bonus to know your winter gear was made in Canada. One size fits all and the variety of beanies, hats, berets and fur trappers offered by Kyi Kyi includes something for anyone – including the outlandish arctic garber who can pull off a giant multi-colour dyed fox fur pom pom.

The only thing I did not like about my beanie was its height. I’m not a tall person, and usually wear my hair pulled back. I think this style of beanie better suits a person with a long face and either long hair or no hair.

In addition to hats, Kyi Kyi designs earmuffs, headbands and scarves in lovely fox fur. Faux hats start at about $59; men’s genuine pom pom hats at $75 and women’s at $85.

Kyi Kyi mini is an adorable line for kids. Woven in pastel knits, with or without chin strings and featuring two little fur poms on either side of the top, these run at $65 – a perfect Christmas gift for any child.

The Kyi Kyi website is easy to navigate and at the time of writing, was brandishing a pop up 15 per cent off for signing up.
