Made with 100% Geelong lambswool, this hat is luxurious & soft to touch, breathable & warm. Knitted in an English rib on a vintage manual knitting machine this hat is then washed to produce its beautiful soft touch & then finished by hand creating a virtually seamless appearance. The fluffy & full pompom is made from 100% pale grey & white wool.
Stitched & finished by hand this bobble hat is made beautifully. After construction this piece is washed to bring out the full softness of the fibre. The hat will feel more snug for the first few wears, this is to allow for the natural stretch that will occur with time.
Leading up to Christmas my lead times are slightly longer than my usual 3-5 days. This piece is made to order so please allow up to 2 weeks processing time before shipping. If you would like to receive your item earlier- you can add on a rush order charge to put your piece to the top of my list. Or alternatively email & ask for accurate lead times.
100% Geelong lambswool spun in Yorkshire.
Geelong Lambswool is a fibre taken from the first shearing of a meticulously bred Merino lamb & is the highest quality of sheep’s wool to be found. Soft & lightweight with excellent insulating properties this wool works perfectly for accessories. Only a tiny percentage of all Merino lambswool can be classified as Geelong, making it one of the most exclusive luxury products available.
Hat measures approx. 50cm circumference x 28cm (from unfolded rim to top of hat). It may feel tight for the first few wears, this is to allow for the natural relaxing & stretching of the knit as it is worn. After a few wears it’ll fit more loosely.
It is recommended that you hand wash your woollen scarves, hats or jumpers; do not machine wash.
One of the many benefits of wool is that unless it’s actually dirty, you can just air it for a day or two and any smell will disappear. If you look after your wool well, it will keep you warm and cosy for years to come!
