I made this cycling cap on a whim–both the plaid fabric and the aqua ribbon have been in my studio for a while, just begging to be used. And somehow they're so good together! A perfect cap for a sunny day and a bright mood.

One size (55-58cm / 21.75-22.75 inches)
Need this in your size? See below.

The fabric is a 65% polyester 35% cotton blend. (Don't poo-poo the polyester! Most sportswear is made from polyester because it is a technical fabric: it's wicking, wrinkle-resistant, and very durable.) The fabric has a nice almost "crunchy" feel to it, similar to waxed cotton. The cap has a cotton twill tape sweatband in black, with elastic in the back for a forgiving fit. The bill (4cm / 1.5" deep) is filled with polyester fiber, and yet holds its shape well, doesn’t sag, and flips up with just as satisfying a flip as plastic does.

To care for it, machine wash cool or warm, tumble dry low or dry flat. Iron hot.

I also make custom bike caps, with over 60 colors of ribbon to chose from, with different bill types, and in different sizes. I make all sizes from newborn to 25" and beyond. Starting with plaid cap foundation, just send me a note with your changes:

  • Size change: measure head where sweatband should sit. Cap will still have ease, so this doesn't have to be precise, just close.
  • Change of ribbon color: the colors shown in listing image above can be substituted immediately. Other colors may take up to several weeks to get in.
  • Change of bill type: soft or hard, 5cm deep or 4cm deep. If you haven't tried a cap with a soft bill, I recommend it. Little Package soft bills are gaining more fans every day.

Changes can add a 1-2 week lead time to your order, otherwise this cap is ready to ship.

I've been making bike caps for 7 years and can make anything your big heart desires. Contact me!
