When it gets cold, this soft woollen beanie takes the chill out of your adventures. Handmade in Africa by a talented group of Thusk™ knitters, support this worthy project with every Thusk™ purchase.

When it comes to winter warmers, your wardrobe is incomplete without a beanie. The natural wool is breathable and provides superior warmth. It can get surprisingly cold on safari. We recommend taking a warm layer with you so you can concentrate on your safari experience in comfort. This beanie is a natural extension of that and is easily packed in a corner of your suitcase - you'll be pleased you took it along. Knitted in a classic cable-knit design, this beanie makes for a casual, comfortable accessory around the fire at the lodge, on the back of game drive vehicles, or for your daily commute through the city when you get back home. Designed to remind you of the individual attention that went into your grandmother's knitted gifts, this beanie is handmade with love and care by the Thusk™ community project in South Africa.

Expedition-tested™ in Africa and the French Alps - and style-tested during a Parisian winter - this safari beanie is proven to be warm in both cold African and icy European conditions and looks great in every setting.

The wool used for the Thusk™ Cable-Knit Beanie adds to the Thusk™ story to make it even more special. Individually cared for by dedicated South African farmers, the wool is derived from sheep reared against the backdrop of African plains - to be used again in African landscapes on safari. Sustainably sourced from this special selection of farmers, the wool is delicately handled from farm to store and into the hands of our knitters where this natural fibre is made into a product you can enjoy whenever you feel a nip in the air.

Wool is a remarkable, naturally renewable and sustainable product. Not only does it retain its shape and softness despite age and stretching, it also has a number of benefits for your health and comfort. With thermal insulation properties, it's both warm in winter and breathable in summer. It is also hypoallergenic - resistant to bacteria, mildew, mould, as well as dust mites.

About Thusk™
Nothing beats handmade knitwear made by loving mothers and grandmothers. With this in mind - together with the opportunity to provide an income to women in Africa - founder of The Safari Store, Steve Adams, approached his mom with an idea. The idea was Thusk™ - a range of handmade safari, outdoor, and everyday knitwear. As an avid knitter, mother, and grandmother, Hazel Adams was the ideal person to head up Thusk™ - providing patterns, wool, and a boosted income for a group of local Zulu knitters in South Africa. Made to Hazel's exacting standards, Thusk™ knitwear is designed to keep you warm no matter where your adventures take you - and warm your heart at the same time by helping a group of deserving craftswomen in Africa.

Thusk™ supplements the government pensions of these Zulu grandmothers, who knit at their own pace around their daily responsibilities. This flexibility allows them to meet their responsibilities as family caregivers whilst receiving an income. Each Thusk™ product has a tag with the name of the knitter - a small but meaningful connection to the women behind every Thusk™ creation.

Say no to plastic packaging
Your Thusk™ clothing is packaged in a recyclable box. At The Safari Store, we are working hard to eliminate plastic from all of our packaging. This forms part of our commitment to a green future and the preservation of the environment, so future generations can enjoy pristine natural spaces.
