Maybe I am seeing things wrong or missing something in the description, but the shearling on this cap is synthetic-- I can see the woven textile background everywhere you part the fur. The tag sewn into the cap reads, "Outer: 100% wool, Lining: 100% Wool Face / 100% Polyester Backing". So where is the shearling as in the description- inside the cap where you cannot see to? In any case, my regular size from other Stormy caps fits good and maybe a bit more snug from all the polyester face fur. I like it and I'll keep it because it will keep my ears warm. However, I really expected that white fur shown in the photos to be genuine wool shearling.
