A luxuriously soft yet durable rib-stitch knitted beanie in the world's finest 100% 4-ply cashmere, made to last.
It is thicker and warmer than most standard beanies, coming in at c. 70 grams. Knitted with the same thickness of cashmere as our cashmere scarfs and chunky cashmere rollnecks (7 gauge using 2-ply cashmere), some may consider it a tad indulgent for a hat, but we think it is worth making. It will become apparent when you first put it on and realise how hard it is to part with something as warm, soft and sumptuous.
The rib-stitch knit adds extra warmth.
It is a versatile piece that is smart enough to be worn with tailoring but can also be dressed down with a casual outfit. Given it is breathable, be sure to bring it with you on long strolls by the sea or in the country.
Comes in one size, but is pliable and will stretch to suit most head shapes and sizes.
The beanie is cut a bit shorter and designed for a smart, neat fit. It can be worn as a traditional beanie by turning up a smaller portion of fabric so that it still covers your ears, or worn as a watch cap, by turning up more of the fabric past the ears.
