A sixteenth century cap in heavily fulled hand-knitted pure wool, based on surviving examples and featuring split overlapping brims and an additional brim layer which tucks inside to thicken and stabilise the brim. The surface is nap raised and brushed to produce a sleek finish. These take rather longer to knit than the plain Tudor flat caps, so please bear with me. More or less any shade you like available, a few classic shades are in the drop down but if you'd like something different just let me know. (Note: the dark grey hat in the images above is rather wider than usual, it was a specially flamboyant modification for a client, typical crown with is about 11 inches as in the black version pictured here.)
I've added an option to have this made with just one brim for those that want this variation, the price will adjust accordingly when you select that option. The cream bonnet shown has one brim made so it sits behind the neck neatly, I can also knit the single brim to flare like the brim in the split version, your choice!
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.
