Weather-resistant and extremely durable, Donegal wool tweed has long been one of the world's highest quality fabrics and a symbol of the Irish county where it is made. A patchwork of herringbone- and houndstooth-patterned Donegal tweed reflects the area's quilting traditions and retains the tailored look of a bygone age. Each cap is unique and patterns will vary.

100% wool. Made in Ireland.

In the shadow of the Bluestack Mountains in northwestern Ireland, the town of Donegal has been renowned for its handwoven wool tweed for generations. A skilled weaver, working at a bench loom, could make up to 30 yards of fabric in a day, using home-raised wool that was often dyed using natural and local materials including moss, yellow gorse, and blackberries.


Today the town's largest manufacturer of wool tweed is the Magee, Molloy & McNutt factory, which presides over Donegal's town center in a large redbrick building. The fabric is prized by the largest international fashion houses as well as tourists looking for an authentic piece of highest quality Irish artisanry. About 25 local craftsmen still work on hand looms in their homes, filling the demand for the bespoke look of a well-tailored tweed suit or cap.

        Comments about Irish Donegal Tweed Cap:

        I use this hat every time I am out and about. It is very comfortable to wear. I love the patchwoork design. I love the fact that this hat is not made in China. It is made by the original hatmakers of this specific style hat in Ireland; making this a very authentic/genuine product. I would recomend this hat to anyone. I love the way it looks on me.

            The patchwork is wonderfully done by hand and has enough variety to stay interesting. People notice this cap and complement it.

                  Comments about Irish Donegal Tweed Cap:

                  I like the hat. The hat looks great: good material and workmanship. The hat is stylish, foldable, warm and better in the wind than anything else except a stocking hat. I have/had several similar hats that were size 6 3/4 or 7 inches (or equivalent mm sizing) that fitted firmly. The sizing is way off. In the small size, I can easily, simultaneously stick both thumbs under the band at my ears and it is still slightly loose.

                      Typical of well made Irish woolen goods.
                      Also typical of quality pertaining to anything
                      National Geographic promotes.
                      first class all the way.
