Overview & Obtaining
Tuques are woolly caps worn in colder climates to protect the upper-head and ears from the bitter cold and wind chill from the likes of ice sheets and tundras. Tuques can be purchased, crafted, or stripped from Outlanders and Pirates. Unlike cowboy hats, tuques don't provide a social chat impact bonus.
As a complicated garment, Tuques can only be made at tailoring benches, which requires complex clothing to be researched in order to be constructed. A tuque requires 25 of any fabric, and 25 seconds of work (1,500 ticks) to be created, assuming baseline global work speed, consciousness, sight, and manipulation.
Conclusion & Comparison
Tuques, like parkas, reduce the maximum comfortable temperature along with a significant improvement to minimum comfortable temperature, meaning they're mainly practical for extreme colds of those which can plummet below -30 Celsius in Winter (Ice Sheets, Tundras, extreme Boreal Forests). If you're in a less-cold biome, it's generally a better idea to go for cowboy hats instead as they won't penalise maximum temperature, and they're also more stylish.
