Thomas Taylor Louisiana Knit Cap

(7 reviews) Write a Review
Thomas Taylor Knit Cap

This knit cap was used during the Civil War by Thomas Taylor of the 8th Louisiana Infantry and is housed in the Museum of the Confederacy.  The original was reportedly red and white, but we have made our first reproductions to match the existing item in a pleasing olive/tan color and dark red.  Made from 100% hand knit, hand spun wool.  


One size fits most, but please let us know your head circumference in inches in the customer comments to ensure proper fit.

    This cap is very faithful to the original in its construction. I've bought several of these and highly recommend them to anyone wanting to improve their Confederate impression.

    Comfortable and authentic

    This is a great product that not only perfectly mimics the 19th century original, but it is entirely comfortable and helped me get through a dreadfully cold weekend of reenacting. Would absolutely recommend.

    Great Quality Winter Hat

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Mar 2018

    I received this winter hat right before the cold weather kicked in, and I have been wearing it ever since. It is well-made and very warm. I have a giant head, and they were even able to send me one that fit. I highly recommend this hat for those cold nights in the field or at home.

    I have a 7 3/4 head size. I put that in the comments and the hat fits perfect, looking forward to cold weather to wear it.

    Very satisfied with this item. It fits really well and looks even better in person! I'm looking forward to wearing it in the field soon. South Union Mills is the best for knitted items! - Tom Travis

    This is a well executed winter hat, made using the correct material, process, and method. It's also nice and warm and will be used for modern everyday wear as well as historical interpretation.
