Cream Woollen Beanie
Originally made in the 1960’s for the hippy-surfers in the Moroccan coastal village of Essaouira – a place notably windier, wetter and colder than any part of the country – this handmade woollen hat is ideal for protecting your head from the elements.
Our beanies are handmade from premium quality, 100% undyed soft sheep wool. Firstly, the wool is ‘carded’ – a process which involves stretching the fibres of the wool to make it softer and more durable. The carded wool is then made into a hat by one of our experienced artisans using a wooden hand spindle – an ancient traditional way of knitting that produces a garment of superior quality.
