Tartan tam-o-shanter bonnet

Tartan tam o shanter hat.  Standard 7/8 oz plain weave wool tartan tam. 500 tartans available, some held in stock but all available to order.

Taking the form of the brimless, bonnet cap that began to be worn throughout north western Europe during the 15th century, the 'Tam O'Shanter' is usually made of wool and has a toorie (pom-pom) in the centre. This distinguishes it from other folk bonnets such as the beret, for instance. Although brimless, the tam has an external hatband which passes around the head's circumference.
