Queenfur’s Knit Slouchy Beanie is made of 100 per cent soft acrylic, with a faux fur pompom on the top of the hat. The cable-knit hat is one size with good stretch and will fit most people’s heads. The description says it is for head circumference of 52 to 60 centimetres.
The slouchy beanie’s colour and the faux fur pompom come in the same shade for a matching look — but prepare to have choices! This hat comes in 44 different colours from rose pink to a mix of coffee and beige to confetti sky blue.

The pompom is removable, which makes cleaning the hat a breeze. After receiving the hat, the product description suggests to use a hairdryer with cold air and brush the pompom with a small tooth comb to make the fur fluffy. Then, shake the faux fur pompom to get rid of the loose material. It’s also suggested to handwash the hat to prevent causing damage.
Why shoppers love it
With an impressive 4.7 star rating on more than 7,400 reviews, this slouchy beanie is shopper-approved.
“This is a very nice hat. Good quality and comfortable to wear. Keeps my head nice and warm. I used a blow dryer on the pompoms as instructed in the description and they're so cute and puffy! I like that the pompoms can come off the tops of the hat for cleaning and mix and match,” wrote one five-star reviewer.
The review, titled “cute and functional,” also said “the black hat looks really nice with the brown/natural coloured fur but it's nice to have the option up switch it up for the black if I'm doing an all-black look. I did use a seam ripper to remove the logo tag from the front of the hat, I personally just like the look of the hat without it. I might be back for more colours!”
Another satisfied customer said the hat is “exactly as pictured.”
“I LOVE IT! I’m so surprised at the quality and price. I’m so happy it is NOT real fur! But it looks like it is. The slouch is just perfect. The thickness of the knit and the pattern will contribute to the warmth,” wrote the customer. “I wore it around the house for about 15 minutes and it so soft and comfortable; no binding feeling around my head. The pompom has a very convenient snap which is very secure and allows you to remove it for washing purposes or to perhaps switch it up with a different pom. I’m so pleased with it that I’m now going to purchase in a different colour.”
“This hat is so cute! It is the perfect amount of ‘slouchy’ - so adorable. It also looks expensive, I get tons of compliments when I wear this hat,” raved another reviewer who gave a five-star rating. “I saw some reviews saying the pompom was squished when it arrived but mine was not at all and has maintained its shape throughout this winter. The pompom attaches with a little snap and I have never had any issues with it detaching at all. Would recommend it!”
Another customer called it a “fantastic buy.”
“This hat fits snug and perfect! The colour in the image is a pretty true likeness. Pom pom is detachable which is great for washing,” the reviewer wrote. “Has perfect slouch at back to give it a more fashionable look and not just your toddler’s hat lol! Will definitely recommend it.”
