It's not warm enough for my liking.


The Winter Hat is a wearable Dress item. It requires 4 Beefalo Wool and 4 Silk to craft and an Alchemy Engine to prototype. The Sewing Kit repairs 50% of its durability.

It restores 1.33 Sanity per minute while worn.

It is a tier 2 warm clothing, increasing the time a character can be without a fire during the Winter before Freezing. It has an insulation factor of 120.

The Winter Hat can be given to a Pig or Bunnyman to wear, which provides no effect. It will still lose durability while worn.

In the Hamlet DLC, Winter Hats can be bought for 10 Oincs at The Sow's Ear Hat Shop in the Pig City.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • The Winter Hat was added in the Long Live the Queen update.
  • The Winter Hat was used to start a snowing effect, with no practical use besides the visuals. This effect was removed as of A Winter's Tale update, when Winter became a feature. Its crafting description during this time was "There must be some magic in it...".
  • The Winter Hat used to cost 100 points under the old Research Points system. Adding it into a Science Machine or Alchemy Engine would give the player 10 points.
  • Klei Entertainment made a product themed after the winter hat. It also comes in dark grey and two versions of pink: one has a Klei logo, while the other has a Don't Starve logo. They all include codes to unlock the corresponding colored Winter Hat Skins in Don't Starve Together.
  • In Rhymes with Play Ep. 53, Kelly said that for the design of the hat, she was based on her father's hat from the 70s, which she found in the basement [1]
