- A sailor's knitted hat with a turn up, as worn by navy sailors and seamen during cold stretches on the ship's deck. Available here in cream. The hat is made using a pearl knit technique with a cross seam at the crown, the result being a warm and soft textured hat that snuggly covers the ears. Tried and tested, made from 100% wool.
Saint James Clothing was born in 1889 in the town of its namesake, located a few miles from the sea, and close to Mont Saint-Michel in Southern Normandy. The Saint James story began when the Legallais family started to spin and dye the local wool and sell the skeins and wool balls to the shops of Brittany and Normandy, later spinning the wool into shirts for the fishermen. Leon Legallais, the then mayor of Saint-James transformed this workshop into a large industry and in 1929 the company went public.
