I have knitted this traditional fisherman's cap, or watch cap, in hand dyed merino wool. This hat is hand knitted in a mega-stretchy ribbed stitch and is an eye-catching color.
The yarn used in this piece is primarily a deep purple, but has colors of white and yellow sprinkled in due to the hand dyed nature of the wool, It's very fun and a gorgeous color.
Fiber: We have used a buttery soft Malabrigo wool, one of the softest and most luxurious wools on the market. It's not itchy and is perfect for next-to-skin wear.
Design: The ribbed stitching allows an amazing amount of stretch to the hat, and allows it to fit small, medium, large and XXL. It is a fantastic hat that can be used by men or women, but is very popular with our male customers.
Do your head a favor and purchase this hand knit, 100% Merino Wool watch cap. This is perfect for someone looking for a high quality winter hat. We knit our watch caps longer and thicker than commercially made hats!
Care for this merino wool is machine wash gentle, lay flat to dry.
Measurements are approx:
Width (unstretched): 7"
Width (stretched): 27"
For more information on the types of wool and their benefits, please see our Fiber Information page.
