The Shamrock Knit Merino Wool Hat from Saol is part of the new St. Patrick Collection from Saol, one of the leading producers of Irish knitwear. The hat features a classic Irish cable knit pattern on top and a double-folded base featuring contrast shamrocks knit into the ribbed stitches to display your Irish heritage proudly.
Made from 100% pre-treated Merino wool, this hat is extra comfortable and super soft. The Merino wool will keep you warm all winter long, while the cable knitting and the cuffed base adds an extra layer of protection for your ears. The cable pattern dates back over a century, when it was first developed for Irish fishermen’s sweaters to create thicker sweaters that could withstand the rigors of the open Atlantic ocean. Today, it is among the most recognizable patterns in Irish design.
The shamrock detailing is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, since the shamrock itself is the official flower of St. Patrick, who used it to teach native Irish about the Christian trinity and convert the island to Catholicism.
Available in Natural, Charcoal, Navy, and Kelly Green, pair this hat with Saol’s Cable Knit Shamrock Scarf for a complete look this holiday! Note: The Kelly Green cap is accented with white shamrocks on the cuff.
