A square crowned heavily felted hat with a straight sided turn-up composed of a double thick brim section. Based on a number of images in late 14thC Florentine illustrations, these work well though the fifteenth and just into the sixteenth centuries. We don't know for certain that these were knitted, but this gives a plausible interpretation and a very practical hat.
Popular shades listed below, but feel free to request alternatives. Made to order. The way our order book is currently working, we open the shop approximately once a month for new commissions and shut it again once we have as many orders as we think we can realistically make over the next 6 weeks or so. Please be aware that your order may fall anywhere into that timescale. We'll always aim to be as prompt as we can.
