These Scottish Tartans Museum exclusive Highland bonnets are made from 100% wool, each containing approximately 10,000 stitches, knit and felt entirely by hand. They are based on peat bog finds from Huntsgarth, Orkney and Arnish Moor, Isle of Lewis, as well as the period artwork of, among others, Richard Ansdell.
These bonnets are very nearly waterproof, are warm in the winter, and breathable for the summer months. The bonnet crown has a diameter of approximately 11.5" and a one-size-fits-all construction, with the size adjustable by an internal hand braided drawstring.
