Traditional Irish tweed flat cap - made by me!
Flat cap story:
In 1571 Queen Elizabeth I sought to stimulate trade in the Irish and English wool trade, by passing an act obliging males over six years of age (except for nobility and persons of degree) to wear caps of wool manufacture on force of a fine (3/4d per day). This law further established the flat cap as a staple of Irish/English working class clothing culture. Even though the law was repealed 26 years later the convention was established.
Mass Irish emigration to the United States of America brought with it an inevitable influence on American cap fashions of the 19th Century and early 20th Centuries. The 8 piece flat cap style now often known as a Cabbie Cap, Paddy Cap, Newsboy Cap and Bakerboy, became, like the imigrants that brought it with them, totally assimilated into the fabric of classic 20th Century Americana.
Model on pics is my husband Luke :)

For woven garments only: Using a soft garment brush, brush garments lengthwise after wearing to remove surface soil that might become stains later on. Dust and dirt can dull the appearance of wool fabrics.
To remove unpleasant odours, lay garments flat on a bed or towel for an hour. Woven garments may be hung in fresh air on a suitable hanger.
Wool garments can be refreshed after unpacking or wearing by hanging them in a steamy bathroom. Moisture from the steam will remove wrinkles.
If wool gets wet, dry the garment at room temperature away from direct sunlight or heat.
Always use steam when pressing wool. Set your iron on the wool setting and avoid ironing the fabric when it is totally dry.

Nice hat. The 5 stars are for that. However, delivery was delayed, according to the postman, due to packaging. The purple envelope made it hard to read the address written on it with a marker. The post office stuck a "attempt delivery to" label with what they thought the address was and got it to me. There was also no return address, so if it was undeliverable, it would have ended up in limbo. This is the only thing that would prevent me from ordering again from this vendor.
