Last & Loom Woollen Beanie
« Reply #15 on: January 28, 2018, 12:42:50 pm »
Giles, do you know if these are made of preshrunk wool (so they can survive a 30° C wash) and are they still due in February? Thanks!

I’m pretty certain that the wool is pre-shrunk, at least on the last batch IHUK had. I bought the green (great colour, great quality) and it had stretched a bit so I hot soaked it. It had no effect whatsoever.

EDIT: In fact I handwashed it with wool detergent in hot water so there was the famous agitation as well.

Thank you neph, your feedback is highly appreciated! I hope the new batch will come pre-shrunk as well. These are looking fantastic and I'm already pending between colours.

@Sam


Any chance you could get a snap of these un rolled please? I Like to wear beanies slouched if that makes sense.


I'd like to see that too.

From Hemi.....

The beanie is a loose knit so there may be some slight shrinkage after washing but it will stretch and loosen back after wear.

Sometimes you just have to roll with it  :) :) :)

I asked for Olive and I got "Sax"....

Luckily it's a beaut of a colour...

D'oh! I was looking forward to the olive one :-[. Looks like I'll be ending up with navy only.

On a scale of 1-10... 0. It’s loose knit, merino. Silky smooth and soft.

Does it stay on on a shaved/ bald head, neph?..
