These chunky hand-loomed hats are made with traditional Donegal flecked yarn with a great combination of colours and contrasting turn-ups.

Made exclusively for us by Rathlin Knitwear, based in the Gaeltacht area of southwest Donegal. The company uses a wide range of new and traditional types of raw material including a signature line in Donegal tweed wool. The wool is hand-loomed into sweaters, scarves, and hats with many of the garments being hand-finished by home workers in their houses. 

Materials and Care:

The hats are one size, and can be hand washed or dry cleaned.

If you like this...

Then we think you'll love our House Socks, which also feature that iconic Donegal flecked wool. Together, these two make the perfect cosy gift.

Sustainability:

Rathlin Knitwear uses tweed wool produced locally in Donegal Yarns, one of the last remaining companies producing this indigenous and authentic product in Ireland. Each hat is created using a 50 year old, traditional hand looming knitting machine that doesn't require any electric power. Their products are known for lasting over twenty years, which in itself is at the heart of sustainability, well constructed and loved for a long time.
