I have a wonderful photo of my Nana (Mam’s Mother) wearing a beanie hat. The photo was probably taken in the early 1940’s and I have always fancied one!
So when I saw one listed on the web I couldn’t resist getting it!
It’s probably a 1950’s one, it has a stamp inside on the wool
from “Merrimac” the seller had found some interesting info about this hat maker
I wanted to re create Nana’s picture at some point, but opted for a few shots wearing my new Rocket Originals sweater for now! I’m also wearing a matching cardi from them and their lovely shoes of course!
My red skirt is a “Pendleton” one 100% pure virgin wool.
