Upstate Stock - Ecru Upcycled Cotton Watchcap
What is Eco-cotton? Eco-cotton is a blend of reclaimed cotton fibers from discarded garment scraps combined with a small amount of nylon made from the RPET process of recycling PET bottles into fiber. In addition, zero dyes or chemicals are used in the process of creating such vibrant colors from what would otherwise be textile waste.

Size & Fit
Length: 11-12" Inches (without fold)
Knit cotton is prone to stretch so if your hat feels a bit tight when you receive it, just a little wear will allow it to adjust to your head. If you feel your hat starts to loosen over time, you can give it a hand-wash in warm water, lay it flat to dry, and it should spring right back. Cotton is a lighter material, so these hats are meant to be worn as transitional hats. If you would prefer a warmer option, take a look at our Upcycled Wool Watchcaps!
The watchcap is a style that's existed for well over 100 years, though it's most commonly associated with WWII US Navy personnel. A watchcap is a shorter hat, traditionally meant to be worn folded above the ears. However, you can also wear it unfolded, rolled, double-folded, etc.
