Baseball Cap Scotland Vertical Black
A baseball cap is a type of soft cap with a long, stiff brim that may either be curved or flat. The front of the cap typically contains designs or logos of sports teams (namely baseball teams). The back of the cap may be "fitted" to the wearer's head size or it may have a plastic, Velcro, or elastic adjuster so that it can be quickly adjusted to fit different wearers.
Baseball caps are made of many types of material and shaped in various styles for different purposes. Major and minor league baseball players wear classic-style caps made of wool (or, more recently, polyester) with their team's simple logo and colours; the logo is usually embroidered into the fabric
The baseball cap is a part of the traditional baseball uniform worn by players, with the brim pointing forward to shield the eyes from the sun. The cap is often seen in everyday casual wear.
Formerly, baseball caps came in standard hat sizes. Since 1980, they have commonly come in a one-size-fits-all form, with an adjustment strap in the back. This simplifies marketing, but it reduces sun protection for bald people.
More recently, advances in textiles have led to the "stretch-fit" hat, which uses Lycra or rubber to allow a hat to have a fitted style while still being "adjustable" within sizes.
Athletes in other sports wear caps with their teams logo and colours as "sideline" caps; both types are also sold as authentic team merchandise in retail stores and are quite popular.
Other caps may simply have a company's logo, such as Reebok, Nike or Carhartt these hats are often made of brushed cotton. Golfers tend to prefer the visor form of cap which does not cover the head but keeps the sun out of their eyes, women also traditionally have worn visors casually but a trend towards certain youth subcultures see an increase in visor popularity among both sexes.
Fitted baseball caps, those without an adjuster, are normally sewn in six sections, and may be topped with a matching fabric-covered button on the crown. Metal grommets or fabric eyelets are often sewn or attached near the top of each of the six sections of fabric to provide ventilation. In some cases, the rear sections of the crown are made of net-like mesh material for extra ventilation. The bill is typically stiffened by a sewn-in piece of paper board.

What is cashmere and where does it come from?
Cashmere wool, usually simply known as cashmere, is a fiber obtained from cashmere goats and other ty pes of goat. The word cashmere is an old spelling of the Kashmir region in northern India and Pakistan. Cashmere is fine in texture, strong, light, and soft. Garments made from it provide excellent insulation, approximately three times that of sheep wool. Cashmere is also softer than regular wool.
China has become the largest producer of raw cashmere and their clip is estimated at 10,000 metric tons per year (in hair). Mongolia follows with 7,400 tons (in hair) as of 2014, while Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Kyrgyzstan and other Central Asian Republics produce lesser amounts. The annual world clip is estimated to be between 15,000 and 20,000 tons (13,605 and 18,140 tonnes) (in hair). "Pure cashmere", resulting from removing animal grease, dirt and coarse hairs from the fleece, is estimated at about 6,500 tons (5,895 tonnes). Ultra-fine Cashmere or Pashmina is still produced by communities in Indian Kashmir but its rarity and high-price, along with political instability in the region, make it very hard to source and to regulate quality. It is estimated that on average yearly production per goat is 150 grams (0.33 lb).
We source our cashmere products from manufacturers using Mongolian cashmere in order to get the highest quality possible.
Why do people love cashmere so much? What are its benefits?
Cashmere is luxurious and fashionable and is also a durable and practical investment. Cashmere travels well and doesn’t wrinkle. It offers great insulation; is warm in the winter and cool in the spring. Cashmere is long lasting; it actually becomes softer with age and rarely pills after being worn and washed. It should last a lifetime.
Once you’ve purchased a cashmere garment, how best to care for it?
Keep the garment clean; a dirty garment will attract moths. Woven garments should be dry-cleaned.
How should I store my cashmere garments?
Cashmere should be neatly folded on a shelf, not a hanger. It should be clean and in some sort of sealable garment bag with protection against moths. If they wrinkle, you are better off steaming than pressing to remove the wrinkles.
What's the best way to clean my cashmere garment?
Hand wash knits with cold water, using a fine washable soap. Never wring or twist. Gently press excess water out with towels. Dry on a flat service on a fresh, dry towel until thoroughly air-dried. Woven garments should be dry-cleaned.
Does skipping cleanings prolong the life of cashmere garments?
No because a dirty garment is most attractive to moths and once a moth creates a hole, it’s trouble.
How can you keep cashmere looking new? How can I avoid it getting fuzzy or developing pills?
By keeping it clean and taking good care of it. High quality cashmere such as ours should rarely pill or fuzz.
Is there a safe way to remove pills on my cashmere sweater?
Pill combs to comb the pills and fuzz are available but since we stock garments made from quality fiber we do not see a need for such things.
What are some of the differences between high quality cashmere and low quality cashmere?
The most important factor in the quality of cashmere is the length and fineness of the fibers. Garments made with long and thin fibers pill less and maintain their shape better than cheaper lower quality cashmere and will get better with each wash. Fineness, length and color (natural white cashmere as opposed to natural colored cashmere) are the most important factors in the quality. We aim to source the best quality cashmere woven right here in Scotland.
