Kilmarnock Bonnets

Particularly suitable for Napoleonic period Highland regiments.
6 Kilmarnock bonnets
These hats feature a fully adjustable head size as there is a strong black herringbone ribbon run inside the narrow band to allow you to secure the bonnet at whatever size suits you. I am happy to make the bonnet a little larger or smaller if you need different proportions The standard height for these bonnets is approx 6 inches tall (as in the bonnet in the bottom image below), if you would prefer a shorter bonnet (next image) or a different height entirely, just let me know.

The blue pictured in the photo is a repeatable shade allowing you to match your regiment across orders, but if your require a different shade I am very happy to make modifications.

Please allow me a couple of weeks to knit your cap. Like many military style caps, this can be custom shaped to suit your tastes or head by dampening it and arranging to shape before allowing the cap to dry thoroughly. Bonnets typically cost £36.00 These are a style approved for living history interpretations. We are happy to work to your group’s guidelines on colour and size or otherwise make pattern modifications to meet your exact requirements.

A toorie can be added to your bonnet in your choice of shade for just £1

As with all our hats and hose, orders may be placed through our webshop at You will find the Kilmarnock Bonnets in the ‘historic hats’ section.
