Round flat cap with narrow 14-15mm continuous brim with no splits, knitted in wool with fine stitches (around 11 stitches per inch), fulled and felted to raise a fine velvety nap, mostly worn off and remining in hidden sections. Undeneath brim has three lines of dark brown silk stitches remining, used to hold down a silk ribbon, facing or lining coming from inside the cap (see OA7137). Line 1: 8mm from inside edge. Line 2: 6-7mm from outside edge. Line 3: 1-2mm from outside edge. Small shred of fine, tabby weave silk still attached, now olive green/brown. The brim is knitted in one with the cap with changes in knit direction to shape the underneath and top sections.  Patch on crown with tabby weave woollen fabric, probably created when cap was excavated and possibly using excavated dress fabric. No lining in main cap. Small repairs of split scetions probably done when excavated.
