Reserved for Zachary Curcija - Handknit Wool Voyageur’s Cap

This handknit cap is an authentic representation of a Machault Cap, which was the traditional cap worn by the French fur traders of the 1600-1700’s. The shape is that of a squashed football, pointed at both ends, so that either end can be the top of the cap. The opposite end is tucked up inside. The toque can be worn long or short, depending on how much you tuck inside, and how far down on your head you pull the cap. The top folds down to the side of the head in a jaunty style. The multiple layers result in a very warm hat. This version is knit in 100% Wool, in a rich shade of blue combined with cream.

The traditional colors for these caps were red or blue, or possibly dark green. This particular cap is based on a sketch by Frederick Remington circa 1890.What a great variation on the solid color cap! Care instructions for this cap are: hand wash in warm water, spin to remove excess water; lay flat to dry.

Sizing suggestions: This cap measures 20" in circumference. Knitted caps need a bit of negative ease to fit on the head properly. In order to determine your correct size, use a cloth tape measure, and measure your head as shown in the last photo. Subtract 10-15% from this number, and that's the circumference that the hat should be. This cap will fit someone with a head in the 22" to 24" range, which is usually a medium to large adult size. Since this cap does not have any ribbing, it will stretch and be slightly less snug than a ribbed cap.
