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.

An Ivy Cap is a part of the Flat cap family, the Ivy cap sometimes also called Sixpence cap, Scally cap or Duckbillcap. 

The Ivy Cap offers a minimalistic style that is both functional and fashionable. Ivy caps have a more rounded shape, which makes it tighter than a regular Flat cap. 

Ivy caps can also be sewn in 6-pieces (Sixpence) and have a similar look to Newsboy caps, however, these caps have a leaner body than the paperboy and they omit the button at the top.
