Abraham Moon & Sons craft their beautiful ranges of fabrics from the historic Moon mill in Guiseley, West Yorkshire. Established in 1837 and with over 180 years of proud British manufacturing & design heritage already to their name, Moon are now one of Great Britain’s last remaining vertical woollen mills.
The term ‘vertical’ is a throwback to the Victorian era when mills would rise several stories, with each floor containing separate parts of the manufacturing process. Today it remains a unique confirmation of their authenticity; they control all processes from dyeing and blending the raw wool fibres, to spinning of the melange yarns, warping, weaving and then finishing the fabrics.
To measure your hat size, wrap a tape measure around your head just above your ears. The tape should fit comfortably – not too tight. Round up to the nearest size.
If you have no tape measure, you can measure with a string, which you then measure with a ruler.

The name comes from the boys who worked selling newspapers on the streets in the late 19th century. In the UK, the model was called Baker Boy cap, but the truth is that the cap was used by more than just "Newsboys" and "Bakerboys". All men, especially from the working class, could wear this type of cap during the heyday of the early 20th century.
The Newsboy cap has a rounder, more generous and bolder shape than, for example, a Flat cap. The iconic shape of the cap is sewn from eight pieces of fabric and has a button in the middle.
Our caps have a handmade quality and timeless style. We always start from traditional shapes, patterns and materials and then adapt them to a contemporary expression.
