Headband/ear coverer instead of ear muffs

Given I look like an idiot in ear-muffs, can anyone suggest where to buy one of those hairbands I've seen people wearing (eg Kim Sears), big, thick and soft. But elasticated to keep it in place in the wind. And you wear it over your ears?

Many thanks!

I crocheted myself one a few years back. Couldnt help you with where to buy one but if you can knit or crochet you can whip one up in an evening.

Thanks but I think that's beyond my capabilities!

You mean a bit like a woolly hat without the bit that covers the top of your head? If so, I saw some in h & m this week. I was tempted to buy one as they were very soft but I checked the label. Wool angry. If I wore that I'd scratch so much, it would look like I had nits.

I'm looking for one without any wool content.

Exactly Poppy. And yes, it has to be super soft for my wee ears!

I bought two knitted ones from ASOS last year, I'm sure you'll fnd what you're looking for on there. Otherwise M&S, Next and Accessorise will probably have some as well

The h & m ones were really soft. Gutted I have a big allergic reaction to all things sheep. They were about £6 or £7 I think.

Thanks guys.

I haven't been on ASOS For ages.

I get paid in 30 hours <rubs thighs>

They are comfy but I find they really mess my hair up.
