I tried to wear my tam to work today and I was only there 30 minutes when I decided it was too damn hot for it. I've switched to bandanas, headbands, and loose hair ties. :)

wool is too hot for me in the summer. you could always get a light weight cotton one. i wore either cotton or acrylic tams in the summer and my dreads developed just fine. look for one with a more open weave so air passes through more easily.

you can use cotton instead, or get a wool tam that has a lot of open areas in it (loose crochet or lacy knit).

but we use wool over our cloth diapers in the summer, babes never seem overheated or sweaty.
