Made in Britain this lambswool Fisherman’s Short Beanie is crafted in Jo's workshop in Sussex, England. This beanie is designed to be folded up in an authentic fisherman’s short style, this hat can also be worn rolled down to cover ears. Knitted and finished to the highest quality, this hat is made from very soft premium non-mulesed lambswool spun in Scotland. The hat features a classic fisherman’s rib design, the rib construction makes this hat very warm and light to wear.
This very special lambswool is spun for Jo by a mill located on the banks of a Scottish loch. Using the pure water from this loch to wash the woollen yarn creates a luxuriously soft handle to the knitwear she makes. Only environmentally friendly dyes that conform to REACH standards are used, allowing the water from the dyeing process to be cleaned and safely returned to the loch; a RSPB nature reserve.
Cool hand wash only. Dry flat.
