Beanie Hat with Pom | Kirby by Owen Barry
Our classic curly sheepskin beanie, with a pom on top.
Luxurious, simple and very warm.
Our standard hat size is 58cms, 58cms is measured around the circumference of your head, just above your ears and across the forehead, the “natural” position for a hat to sit. We find this to be a universally easy unisex fit, (many of our hat styles are designed to appeal to a unisex audience). All sheepskin has an amount of natural stretch and elasticity, also, of course, if there is a fair amount of wool, this will bed down a little over time.
If you have a particularly small or large head and would like a bespoke fitting hat, please contact us via email or phone.
Hurricane Merino Curly
Hurricane Curly Merino Skin has been a long-time favourite in the Owen Barry Shearling collection.
It is a hard wearing skin with a stunning texture in its curly wool.
The outside of the pelt has a leather or slight Napalan finish applied, Napalan is both a protective and a fashion finish, the leather surface can offer more protection against staining and grubbiness than a standard suede.
The Hurricane napalan has an aged look which it distresses more over time accentuating the vintage look, this makes Hurricane Napalan our first choice for Aviator type jackets, it also gives hats & accessories a real outdoors feel.
Snow Cap - Sometimes we select the Hurricane to have snow-capped wool, this tipping effect gives a stunning texture and emphasises the curly finish by giving a depth of shading to the wool.

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.

Merino Sueded Sheepskin
Five generations of the Barry family have been tanning and selecting sheepskin and leathers, so when it comes to choosing the finest, we feel we have a pretty good inherent knowledge.
Merino Ironed Sheepskin is recognised as being the finest shearling in the marketplace, these exquisite skins have a plush velvet-like ironed wool and a super silky suede, they are medium to lightweight, the perfect skin for the finest sheepskin garment.
Merino sheepskin has a way of "falling" when manufactured is stunning, second to none and the "handle" of these pelts has to be felt to be believed - it is buttery soft and supersensuous like silk.
Merino skins are available in Suede or Napalan finish, this skin is perfect for any occasion and can be worn all season long, in fact, it will become so special, it is doubtful you will want to disrobe come spring !!

Toscana is nature at her most elegant, guaranteed 100% a bi-product of the food industry.
Toscana lambskins are a tribute to both Mother Nature and the skill of the worlds leading tannery technicians.
With stunning ironed and polished wool, and super silky suede, these skins offer the ultimate in luxurious warmth and style.
Very often Toscana's have a tipped wool which makes them look like the finest furs - but REST ASSURED - THEY ARE NOT FUR, in fact, they are the opposite, Toscana is the only true environmental answer, - 100% bi-product, & biodegradable, obviously better than real fur, but also far better for our oceans etc. than the chemicals used in producing faux fur.
Because of this, we like to use Toscana throughout our collection as both a statement full pelt and as a trimming skin, on our clothing and throughout our accessories range.
