heimat mechanics hat rescue orange
Based on the standard issue USN watch cap worn during WWII, our Mechanics Hat is made distinct by its short profile and deep brim, which can either be worn above the ears, or rolled down as needed.
You could say there is a strong family resemblance between our hats and our jumpers. We use the same premium virgin wool with natural self-cleaning and water-resistant properties and the same distinctive 5-gauge knit. As ever, these are lovingly made in our factory in Germany. 100% Virgin Wool. Knitted in Germany. 5-Gauge Knit. 9cm Brim. Natural Self Cleaning and Water-Resistant Properties
Our Mechanics hat will sit a bit tight on the head when you first wear it but has a lot of stretch and will shape perfectly to your head and get softer and softer the more you wear them. They will break in like your favourite pair of jeans. You can wear them above the ears or pull down over the ears.
Our wool has natural oils and is self cleaning. Just hang it outside in fresh air for a night. If you still want to machine wash it wash at 30 degrees wool cycle in a half full machine and use wool detergent.
