The Prince of Wales Fair Isle Wool Beanie Hat is a new design

The pattern of this Beanie Hat is derived from a jumper that was knitted in Fair Isle for the Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VIII

This Beanie Hat is woven in Shetland to a Fair Isle design based on the original jumper that was given to the Prince of Wales as a gift by James A Smith, a Shetland hosiery dealer

The Prince was portrayed wearing the jumper, holding his favourite dog, in 1921. The portrait was painted by John St Helier Lander (1868-1944)

This image is said to have started the fashion for Fair Isle knitwear in 1920s – the Prince is shown wearing the jumper and holding a terrier, dressed for golf
