A classic cold weather stand-by: the watch cap. Our watch cap is knit and finished at a factory in Texas from superfine merino, sourced directly from the Zegna mill in Italy. At 19.5 microns, this merino wool feels very soft to the touch, with no itchiness whatsoever. High grade merino wool is so useful that there isn't enough space in this description to sing all of its praises, but here are the highlights: merino wool insulates but also breathes, wicks moisture away from the body, and is not a fussy and fuzzy fiber. It can stand up to the abuse of a normal life: getting jammed in pockets, left in car seats, and stuffed bags.
Knit in Texas (Texas!) using the latest seamless knitting machine technology, other than the brand label, there is no distinguishable difference between the outside and the inside. This construction is both beautiful and practical as the lack of seam eliminates "finding the front" of the hat and also continues the beauty of the knit around the cap without interruption.
