Sized for older children and smaller women, this thick wool watch cap is identical to my other watch caps but is 2" shorter and will fit smaller heads better. It is still deep enough to turn up the brim over the ears.

This hat is one of my warmest, made with a heavy, tightly twisted all wool yarn from the British Isles. An entire skein went into this watch cap, and it feels like it. There is a resilience and bounce to the fiber when you squeeze it that you get only with pure wool. And wool is best for keeping your head warm when those winter winds blow.

Ribbing also makes it warmer than flat knitting because it is thicker and has air pockets to hold in the heat. And because the hat is ribbed, it is also very stretchy.

The color is a deep burgundy (Merlot? cordovan? ox blood?) a dark reddish brown.

If this isn’t perfect for you, I have lots of other hats in my gallery.
