This Lincoln Electric black welding beanie protects the top of the head from welding spatter and heat. It is made of cotton for breathability and is machine washable. It is flame-resistant for protection and lightweight at 9 ounces per square yard. In addition to protection and absorption, it provides a comfortable cushion for a welding helmet. This beanie is a size large for hat sizes 7 to 7-3/8. (Hat size is equal to the circumference of the head at the temples measured in inches divided by 3.14.)
