Hand knitted to a pattern published in 1918, this classic helmet is suitable for both WW1 and WW2 impressions. Shown in an undyed light brown, I can make this is a wide range shades, undyed browns, greys and dyed khaki (rather more brown than modern olive green khaki) is a good choice for Army wear, whilst dark blue is a good option for Navy use. Also ideal for explorers and those engaged in outdoor work in all weathers.
I can also make these with slits to allow access to the ears, this was sometimes preferred for military use as it meant hearing was not muffled by the headcovering.
Knit to order, so we can easily make any adjustments to size or shade to give you precisely the look you require. 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 4-6 weeks. Please be aware that your order may fall anywhere into that timescale. We'll always aim to be as prompt as we can.
