Berties of Bay Beanie – Black

Traditional Robin Hood’s Bay fisherman’s beanie hat in a classic black colour, knitted in 100% British oiled wool.

Derived from the traditional Robin Hood’s Bay knitting pattern, sailors and fishermen wore beanies to keep them warm. The pattern was unique to the village that they came from, so when lost at sea or after drinking too many shandies, they could be identified and returned home to their loved ones.

• British made using 100% British oiled wool

• Machine-knitted

• Hard wearing

• Unisex – one size fits all

This beanie is designed not to be washed due to the oiled content in the wool, which helps repel rainwater in light showers. If an emergency occurs spot clean the affected area by hand, then lay on flat surface to dry.

Also available in Navy

Absolutely wonderful customer services and excellent support. I wanted a specific gansey jumper and could not find it anywhere. They were fantastic, found the jumper for me and sent it to me express delivery yesterday afternoon. Royal Mail excelled and it arrived to our surprise this morning. It is exactly what was wanted and I can't thank you enough for all your help.
