Berties of Bay – Submariner Beanie

A brand new design from Berties of Bay, makers of the iconic Whitby Gansey.

This black, 100% British Oiled Wool beanie is knitted in moss stitch. Without a fold line they can be worn as a regular bobble hat or double rolled if you want to carry wear the traditional way.

Reviving an iconic Naval staple worn by Submariners during harsh winters at sea.

Whilst hard at work deep below the ocean, submarine crews worked in challenging conditions for months at a time. Mainly working alternate shifts they shared bunks and operated in claustrophobic conditions. By wearing their wool hats snug to their heads the bobbles helped them to navigate the low ceilings of the submarine, whilst keeping warm.

• British made using 100% British oiled wool

• Machine-knitted using traditional seamless construction

• Hard wearing – bloody warm

• 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 a flat surface to dry.

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.
