New 'Harris Tweed' Cycling Caps (autumn/winter 2017.)

Bespoke Cycling Caps Harris Tweed New Products Sale Waxed Cotton

Here are some of the new listing for this Autumn's cycling caps, both bespoke (made to order) and of the shelf. You can find the full range including some sale items at reduced prices here.

These caps are made from beautiful Harris Tweeds and waxed cottons,

'Harris Tweed is a cloth that has been handwoven by islanders at their homes in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, finished in the Outer Hebrides, and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides. Harris Tweed is protected by the Harris Tweed Act of Parliament 1993, which strictly outlines the conditions in which the cloth can genuinely be made.' (Wikipedia)

'Waxed cotton is, as the name suggests, cotton impregnated with a paraffin based wax, woven into a cloth. Widely used from the mid-19th century to the mid-1950s, the product,which originated in the sailing industry in England and Scotland, became widely used by many for waterproofing.' (Wikipedia)

And four panel which is a more traditional style.

You have a choice of two linings as standard, although if you would prefer an alternative please do get in touch. Standard linings are a choice of William Morris floral prints, or airtex for a modern twist.

And you can have your cap with earflaps to keep you warm this winter. 

 

And here are my standard sizes for these caps, if you require larger or smaller that would not be a problem.

    Hi there,

    Just incase the messenger didnt work as I’m not on Facebook, just the messenger app.

    My message as follows:

    Really interested in the tricolour cycling caps, where do you advise to take the measurements for sizing?
    Also, what are the timescales from ordering to delivery?
    I’m taking part in the Torino Nice Rally, 700km bike event starting in Torino following the border through the mountains finishing in Nice and I obviously need a nice cycling cap to accompany me ?. Undecided whether to go for the Italian or French tricolour ?. Decisions… Main issue is I leave on 3rd September to take part. Possible to have one made before then?
    Kind regards
    Chris
