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. Fully lined, with inner cotton sweatband. 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 Walking Hat:

I was buying another hat, the Australian Bush Hat. This hat was on sale, plus 20% off that. It's a quality brand made in Ireland, and a style I had wanted. I got it very cheap, although I had to get a size too large than I normally wear, I'm not sorry, though, because it sits low on my head and is warm and comfortable (and it's exactly like a hat I saw Sean Connery wear in a movie!) Excellent look and exceptional quality.
