Dutch Brimmed Cap hat size 21-23 inches 7″ tall


This cap is based on several images and original caps ranging in date from the late 17th to the late 18th century. Our reproduction is knit of two dark sheep’s grey mule spun wool (mule spinning simulates hand spinning), fulled then brushed with a wire brush to completely cover the knitting into a water resistant mass. This cap will fit a hat size of 21-23″. The cap itself is 7″ tall with a 2″ brim.
