Scots Bonnet (Jacobite)


Scots Bonnet (Jacobite)



When Prince Charles Edward Stuart arrived at Glenfinnan in 1745, he plucked a white rose and placed it on his hat hence the white cockade became the sign of the Jacobite supporters of his rebellion.

These bonnets are identical to the earlier Scots bonnet but carry the “White Cockade” symbol.  They are made from 100% pure Leicester Blue faced sheep wool and are heavily felted to make them waterproof and give extra weight.  They have a double ribbed headband with a drawstring so are suitable for all head sizes.  These bonnets come in the traditional colours of woad (light blue), indigo and dark blue (see previous bonnet pictures above for colour illustrations).  All these colours are suitable for the period.
