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. This tweed hat with a removable pheasant feather tucked in the band is a timeless way to protect against wind and weather. A patchwork of herringbone and houndstooth reflects the area's quilting traditions and retains the tailored look of a bygone age.


Made in Ireland. Wool, with poly lining and inner cotton sweatband. Each hat is unique and patterns will vary.


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.

I have several very well made hats (including two Tilleys) and this one is right up there. The patchwork is done very nicely and the hat is well formed and seems very durable. I live in the snow belt and this hat is nice and cozy. I feel this hat is good for being out and about town, but probably would not recommend it for anything athletic. I like patchwork and the bright colors in the photograph are what attracted me. There was even a review online complaining about how brassy the colors were, which encouraged me. However, I have to say I was a little disappointed that the hat I received is mostly browns and deep blues, but I am still very happy with it. Also, I measured my head and went by the measurements list on this site and the hat fits wonderfully. I my experience, almost every high quality hat manufacturer has their own sizing guidelines, and suggest a buyer always check first.

cool hat but oversized. All my other hats are Large, but this in Large size was much too large. Loved the look but had to return it. Afraid that if I reordered in medium it would be too small. The shipping to return and reorder and possibly have to return again would total to as much as the hat cost itself. So I guess no hat for me. It really is a nice product but just don't fit right

Comments about Donegal Tweed Wool Patchwork Walking Hat:

The hat is very well made. Not as colourful as the photo, unfortunately. The brim is not flat (it's bent in several spots), but may have been where it was made. I hope I can use steam to maybe straighten it out. My main issue is with the sizing. I first ordered a size Medium due to the lame sizing info, but the hat was way too small. I have purchased many hats before and know I measured correctly. I returned it and exchanged with an XL size, which is 1/4-1/2 size too big but I can work with that. The shipping costs are too high to do this again.

Comments about Donegal Tweed Wool Patchwork Walking Hat:

I really like the hat, unfortunately it was crushed when I received it. I tried to fix it and I couldn't. I returned it for exchange and I am looking forward to receiving soon. Also the one pictured in the ad had some light blue in it which really caught my eye and I requested that the replacement have some blue in it as well.

            I'm half Irish and love the fact that this hat is made of Donegal Tweed. It's hard to find hats that fit my large head, but this one is perfect.
