Traditional Tam O’Shanter


The Traditional Tam ‘O’ Shanter Bonnet.



The Traditional Tam ‘O’ Shanter Bonnet.  Named after Burns’ famous character, this traditional bonnet has been worn in Scotland since the mid 18th century to the present day.
Made from 100% British wool (can be made in natural or dyed wool) it has been heavily felted to make it waterproof and comes with a ‘Toorie’ (pom pom) on the centre of the crown. It also has a drawstring through the headband to make it snug and adjustable.
I made one of these Tam O’Shanter for the National Trust of Scotland’s ‘Tam O’Shanter’ Video in the New Robert Burns Centre in Alloway.
