These caps are well-documented from the late 1400’s all the way through the late 1700s. Our version of the Monmouth Cap is based on a beautifully preserved 16th century specimen in the Monmouth Museum Collection that experts say epitomizes the Monmouth style. By the mid to late 1700's, these caps were especially popular with sailors, and were recorded in period inventories of sailor slop clothing. Monmouth caps are also seen in numerous period paintings and illustrations. Made of 100% worsted wool yarn. Machine knitted and hand-finished. These are very comfortable hats, perfect for reenactment as well as for everyday wear. One size fits most. Available in solid colors: Bright Red, Dark Gray, Dark Green, Navy Blue, Royal Blue, Burgundy, Off White, and Mushroom.
Stock varies on this item, please allow 1-4 weeks if the cap needs to be made.
