The Design

“Fuzzy, nonchalant style.”

The storm without might rair and rustle,
Tam did na mind the storm a whistle.

-Tam O’Shanter by Robert Burns

We can’t help but be charmed by a tam—timeless, iconic, and just a bit cheeky! The beret’s Scottish cousin, this slouchy topper has an effortless style that’s at home in the Highlands or on the high street. We’ve designed it with a folded edge—for a nice, stand-up coziness—and a soft, roomy crown for just the right touch of nonchalant flop!

Our Mohair Tam is knit in two favorite mohair blends from Rowan—the lace-weight Kidsilk Haze and the worsted-weight Kid Classic. Kidsilk Haze brings the luster of silk and the halo of brushed mohair to the soft warmth of Kid Classic’s non-brushed mohair, lambswool, and nylon. These two yarns combined make for a lightweight, yet wonderfully warm fabric with a fabulous amount of fuzz!
