Just right for warmth when I travel North -

I am pleased with the soft feel of the cashmere wool. I think it will serve me quite well to keep my ears warm.
Very soft & plush -
standard fit, very soft (quite nice on bald heads like mine), thick but pliable
I Bought Another One! -
By: walnutcreekgirl from Walnut Creek, CA
I bought this cap for my husband last year and he just loves it! When it came time to find the perfect gift for my son-in-law whose an avid mountain biker, this fit the bill. I didn't have to worry about the size, it's warm and soft, and protects his ears from the wind!
Best watch cap -
I purchased this watch cap as a gift for my husband. He says "the cashmere feels great" and he "appreciates the superb fit around the top of the head without that annoying 'nipple' at the top."
A Great Cap! -
By: JandK from Rocky River, OH, USA
I now look forward to going out in the cold. This cashmere cap not only keeps my head and ears warm, it is very comfortable. No itchy-scratchy hats will ever touch my head again.
my husband's anniversary present -
By: besbud from Oshkosh, WI
My husband was tired of wearing his old punk band watch caps when he would go out dressed in french cuff shirts and silk ties! Although I thought this looked pretty cool, he was insistent about this particular cap and it made a lovely anniversary present-since our date is Christmas, it was perfect!
NO WAY..NOT HAPPY..!! -
Too small...not deep enough...not long enough to cover ears...and I have a small head
Keeps my head warm -

Soft, warm and cuddly what more can you ask for from a relatively expensive watch cap
My Favorite Hat -
By: Swat from Bergen County, NJ
I'm hearing impaired, and I need a hat that covers my ears when it's raining (to protect the hearing aids). I also want a hat that looks good, and that feels comfortable through a range of temperatures. My wife gave me the hat as a Christmas gift, but I couldn't wait to start wearing it. In two weeks it has become my favorite hat. Treat yourself: buy it!
Really warm and comfortable cap -
By: JNH337 from Virginia
Gave as a gift. He loved it. It was warm and was really comfortable.
|Cashmere: the fabric of kings|
The ancient fabric of choice for a royal family
Once again, we have Asia to thank for a prized textile. Cashmere is named for the Kashmir goats that inhabit the Himalayas and the mountainous regions of Central Asia that surround the Gobi desert. The harsh, extreme climate of the high desert plateaus are just right for producing the downy undercoat needed to make cashmere yarn. Cashmere was known to the Western world in ancient Roman times and it was the fabric of choice for Tibet’s royal family for centuries. Today, about 60% of the world’s cashmere, or approximately 3,000 tons, comes from Tibet and China.
A gift from the Gobi
The coat of a Kashmir goat consists of a coarse outer coat, sometimes referred to as guard hair, and the fine downy undercoat, which is used to make cashmere yarn. The goats grow this ultra-soft, insulating inner layer for protection from the wild drops in temperature at night in the mountains and plateaus. This superior fiber is collected annually, during the spring molting season, when the animals naturally shed their winter wool. It is traditionally removed with a comb and separated by hand. Each goat produces a mere four to six ounces of downy fiber a year.
The timeless appeal of cashmere
As a knit, cashmere is lightweight and exceptionally warm. The yarn has a soft, silky finish and can be easily dyed. Like silk, cashmere’s exotic origins and sublime softness are timelessly appealing. Orvis is proud to bring you these handsome cashmere sweaters. They are a great value, combining the ultimate in luxury with winter warmth and practicality – a wonderful gift for your friends, family, or yourself.
