Fisherman’s rib is a knitting stitch originating in fishing communities, where it was developed to provide a very thick and warm knit for the jumpers the fishermen wore both at sea and on land. This hat has a twice-turned-back border knitted in fisherman’s rib, so if you suffer with cold ears this is the hat for you. Knitted to fit the head rather than to grip it, it will hold pockets of warm air and keep you snug on the bitterest of days. No more ear-ache! The crown of the hat is finished with contrasting paracord, tipped with metal lace aglets. Our top tip from the catwalk: wear them with contrasting bright colours or use them to accent neutral and natural tones with a bright pop. Knitted in England using pure Merino wool sourced in the South East of Spain and spun in a family run mill in Yorkshire, we have done our utmost to source a premium grade yarn with a low environmental impact. The sheep who grew this soft and lustrous fibre are not subjected to the practice of mulesing.
