Back by Popular Demand: The Tilley Ivy Cap

After a prolonged absence, Tilley is reinstating their iconic Ivy Cap. Made with stylish Harris Tweed, the cap has an elasticized sweatband to ensure a comfortable fit. It has discreet tuckaway ear warmers and a Hydrofil® polyester lining to wick away moisture.

Harris Tweed cloth is produced in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland from 100% virgin wool using traditional methods. For centuries, the cloth was only known locally. In 1846, Lady Dunmore, widow of the landowner of Harris, the Earl of Dunmore, chose to have their clan tartan replicated by Harris weavers in tweed. Since then, Harris Tweed has become famous throughout the world, protected by its own Act of Parliament.

The wool, primarily from sheep on the Scottish mainland, is dyed before spinning. The cloth is woven on treadle looms at each weaver’s home, then returned to the factory for finishing. The resulting Harris Tweed is a beautiful, durable cloth with the natural warmth and water resistance of a pure wool.
