    I don't use the cashmere as a workhorse, though, for total transparency. It pretty much behaves like a really really really soft wool (even though it's technically goat hair )

    yeah, cashmere would be my "around town" and only have to deal with some misting and maybe light rain on occasion. merino is my camping/hiking choice until something can prove itself better for the money.

    Thanks for the helpful info. Guess I’ll look for some merino beanies too!
