Sheepskin Toscana Beanie Hat - Corby
Merino Curly Sheepskin (Shearling):- The characteristic of curly sheepskins is one of the most natural, essentially, the fleece is left soft and curly as you would find in nature. The wool is dense and warm, giving your winter coat a snuggly cosy feel.
The pelt side can be finished with either sueded or napalan (leather) surface.
Sueded: OB hand select all their skins to ensure that the suede surface is always soft and sensual, with a slight velvet nap on the suede.
Napalan: Is both a protective and a fashion finish, the leather surface can offer more protection against staining and grubbiness.
In our Somerset workshops every skin is painstakingly matched for every coat, by toning with adjoining skins we ensure that the garment is completely consistent in colour and texture all over, matching is a very skilled process, with many years training to perfect, if the matching process is not carried out to the highest standard, a shearling garment can include many multicoloured panels, OB also match the wool side of the coat as well ensuring that when you open it, inside there is a consistency throughout.

Morning Debbie, Thank you for your email and for your interest in Owen Barry products.
Corby Hat - Hmmm - yes it is usually a one size fit, based on a head circumference of 58cms, this together with the wool density and the natural elasticity in the skin allows for the hat to fit larger sizes - however, small heads, not so much, I think it would be too big for you, we have girls here with smaller heads and this Corby is too large.
We can gladly make one smaller for you - no problem, it will be the same price, and would only take a couple of days - the best thing, if you do decide you would like one - tell us the circumference of your head and we can ensure we get in that ballpark - as stated above the wool pile and the natural elasticity does afford a little tolerance.
Bow Gloves - These are one size - based on a medium (size 7- 7.5 hand size) - measure around the palm of your hand just above the V of the thumb and if it measures much less than 7 inches - these gloves are going to be too big for you -- interesting point, you don't want tight gloves, they will not keep your hands warm, a bit of room for air to circulate is important.
Another, good thing they are not overly long in the fingers, there is nothing worse than ends of your fingers flapping about.
Fingers crossed that helps - s'cuse the pun !!
