- What do you call a hat which is made by wool that you often wear in winter? It's like the one that hip hop singers often wear :)

Thanks so much!

    Hi NHHL,

    These hats have a lot of different names, depending on the person or the region. I know it as a knit cap or a stocking cap, however conical knit hats with long tails and tassels are also stocking caps to me.

    This Wiki article lists a variety of names for this type of hat. It appears that almost every variety of English has a different name for this hat. :)

    Yes!:D

    For me it's a woolly hat, though I learned the word tuque when I lived in Canada. I'm also familiar with beanie.

    I don't know what Eminem calls it....
