A Highland Cow hat that is better for you and the planet too!
Our Highland cow hat is now knitted with luxurious Italian merino wool. We love to wear this type of wool as it feels incredibly soft on your skin and is the warmest wool in our range.
The design features a Highland Cow face, with fun candy cane horns in contrasting colours. There is a wooden fence around the circumference of the hat, with the cow repeated four times. The hat is available in two colours, a charcoal grey hat, with mustard, blue and white features. Or the Mallard hat with rust, gold and cream features.
The bobble hat fits most head sizes. As reference, we have added an image of the large male head wearing the mallard hat and a small female head wearing the grey hat. The ribbed turn up hugs your head and folds up to adjust the length. As we knit each hat on our V-bed knitting machine, this means you have two layers of wool throughout the hat, for added warmth and durability.
Merino wool is a fibre with one of the tightest coils from any breed of sheep. The structure of the wool fibre makes it breathable, water repellent and hypoallergenic. As wool is a sustainable fibre, it regenerates every year on the sheep. Finally, in years to come, wool will degrade naturally, leaving no trace on the earth.
We source our Merino wool from Yeoman Yarns in Leicester. Their Merino wool is supplied from non-mulesed sheep which is processed and spun in Italy.
You can wash merino wool in the washing machine. We recommend to wash at 30 degrees and turn the product inside out to protect the soft, hand sewn pompom. Do not tumble dry the hat.
