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!

  • 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 acquainted 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 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

  • 70% merino wool, 30% alpaca wool.
  • 360g/m2.
  • 20.5-21 micron.
  • Wool wash at 40° C (104° F)

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 types of wool are pretty warm even when wet and won't stink easily thanks to their antibacterial properties.

The beanie can be machine washed at 40 degrees Celsius (104° F) with a wool cycle. The use of wool care products is 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 colors

The available colors 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 odor of the animal, which will wear off with use. We think this is a lovely scent, kinda reminds us of a farm.

Size and measurements

The beanie measures 23 x 24 cm (9" x 9.5") flat.

Made in Finland

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.

I could have lived with the slightly itchy wool feeling but I made the mistake to wash this thing according to instructions. It shrunk way too much to fit any longer.

Mukavan tuntuinen pipo, mutta neulos lähtee helposti purkautumaan ja pipo lässähti täysin pesussa.

It's a bit small for my fat 63 cm head, it's significantly smaller than Särmä Merino Watch Cap, it barely covers the top of my ears when it's rolled all the way down. It's warm under a hood but the knit is so lose that it bleeds heat like a sieve in the open and the wind goes right through it.

Jos pää jäässä aiemmin, ei ole enää. Hämmentävän lämmin.

I bought this for the Canadian winter. For the money, it can't be beat. It is very warm and not at all itchy, though it runs a touch small for those with larger heads. I am size large and the beanie (toque as we say) fits just fine after a brief period -- it gradually conforms to the wearer. In a snow storm you will want a hood, but on nicer days this does the trick and it can be folded down to cover the ears if you like. There is nothing quite like wool.

Liian pieni 62 päähän, ohuus on makuasia.
Kudos on myös todella harvaa eli kaikki tuuli tulee läpi, eikä haissut edes alpakalle
