Beanie or beanie hat is the name for two distinct types of cap or hat The name "beanie" probably comes from the early-20th century slang term "bean," meaning "head".
The beanie cap was typically made of wool felt, and was popular amongst school age boys from the 1920s to the early 1940s.
In the early 1990s, the beanie hat saw a reemergence in popularity due to the "grunge" clothing trend as well as the popularization of snowboarding and other cold weather sports activities. The modern beanie hat is usually made of fleece, or special synthetic material that wicks moisture away. Woven beanie hat versions, resembling tobogganing caps, are also popular sportswear accessories for winter sports - such as snowboarding.
