Hefty stuff for the winter! Made from alpaca/merino wool blend, this watch cap is warmer than just a lambswool cap of the same weight. These are undyed, what you see are the natural shades of the animal!

  • 70 % merino wool, 30 % alpaca wool
  • Multi-function model
  • Made in Finland!

A heavenly blend of alpaca and sheep

Alpaca is a relatively new arrival to the vast wastelands of Finland, but we're slowly getting acquinted with it. We already have alpaca farms here, you know! When you take alpaca and merino wool and combine them to a well thought-out beanie, you have something damn nice in your hands!

The beanie measures 23 x 24 cm flat. The thick rib knit will stretch to fit your head. You can pull it down as is or fold the edge, watch cap style.

Material and care

Alpaca is said to be up to three times as warm as lambswool, won't pile up easily but doesn't contain lanolin either. On the other hand merino wool is extremely fine lambswool and traps warmth like there's no tomorrow - all in all a tried and true material. Both wools are pretty warm even when wet and won't stink easily thanks to their anti-bacterial properties.

The beanie can be machine washed in 40 degrees Celsius with wool cycle. Use of wool care products recommended (ones with lanolin too). Hang dry.

Our merino wool is mulesing-free. With alpaca wool such measures have not been necessary ever, so it's quite ethical by virtue.

Two colours

The available colours are dark brown and grey. As said before, these are the natural shades of the animals and haven't been treated in any way. They can vary just a bit from batch to batch.

Being untreated, they also have the natural odour of the animal, which will wear off with use. We think this is a lovely scent, kinda reminds us of a farm.

Bit itchy. But all in all a good looking and good quality hat. I have had and lost both särmä merino watch cap and commando and this one has this more rough touch of the alpaca. I like it. And very warm.. Bit tight but it might stretch a bit. I don’t mind though.
