The Cotton Knit Beanie in Inky Blue is a year-round watch cap made from chunky knitted cotton. Nigel often wears a beanie all year round, so as part of Nigel Cabourns spring-summer collection, this beanie comes in a lighter cotton version- making it suitable for every month of the year. It’s made in Scotland, carrying similar design traits as our winter wool beanies, but that cotton makes it especially versatile.
The shape itself is based on the knitted watch cap worn by explorer George Lowe during the Trans-Antarctic Expedition which took place from 1955 to 1958 and was the first overland crossing of the continent through the South Pole. Whilst George’s was obviously designed for extremely cold weather conditions, this cotton version is a bit more wearable throughout the warmer months too.
The men’s cotton beanie in Inky Blue features an embroidered broad arrow logo on the front. This motif features regularly in Nigel’s designs and is a nod to the broad arrows which were used to signify equipment and clothing owned by the military until it was phased out in the 1980s.
