A durable and supremely warm cable knitted beanie in the world's highest quality 100% 4-ply superfine lambswool, made to last.
At c. 75 grams, it is thicker and warmer than most standard beanies and as it is made using superfine lambswool from Todd & Duncan's prestigious Lamaine collection, it is also incredibly soft, the softest in the world.
Although it comes in one size, it 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 the rib trim so that the beanie still covers the ears, or worn as a watch cap, by turning up more of the rib trim past the ears.
It is a versatile piece that is smart enough to be worn with tailoring but can also be dressed down with a casual outfit.
Height 24cm x Width 23cm (when not turned up)
