Monmouth Caps

Monmouth Caps

Product code: 0000003114-000003116

Our caps are hand knitted in Monmouthshire using 100% British wool yarn grown and spun in the UK and are complete with felt button on the crown and attachment loop. This is our take on the historic 'Monmouth Cap' the 'must have' accessory of the 16th century.

The only known original example can be seen in the Nelson Museum, Monmouth and is worth a look if you are in the area.

The Caps are available in natural undyed colours and a selection of hand dyed colours using natural dyes - weld, madder, coreopsis, indigo - all dyestuffs are grown and harvested in Monmouthshire (with the exception of indigo, although we do occasionally have locally grown woad dyed). The Lincoln green is obtained by overdyeing indigo with weld.

These caps are extremely durable, warm and water resistant and have been purchased for use by Vets, Re-enactors, Gardeners, Anglers, Walkers and Historical Drama Productions to name just a few. The caps are fulled (lightly felted) to fit a size 21" - 24" (55 - 61). Other sizes are available to order so please email us with any special requirements.

These items are often made to order (esp. during periods of high demand) so please allow up to 7 days before we can dispatch.
