Irish Cotton Flannel Sleeping Cap
Oldfashioned can be best
When we were first married, my husband complained that his head got cold at night. I remembered the nightcaps for sale in the Vermont Country Store catalog, and ordered him one. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the pom-pom, our cats thought it was a new toy. Fast action with a pair of scissors made the cap just right, and gave the cats an authorized new toy.

Hubby's cold head
I bought this night cap for my husbands birthday. We live in WV and you wouldn't think it gets very cold here but, it does.We heat our house with wood, and if it is between about 40-60 degrees outside it isn't windows open weather, but it isn't really warm in the house. My husband is hair folically challenged and he had resorted to sleeping in a winter cap or his ball cap. I thought the night cap would be a definite improvement for him. Long story short, he loves it, he sleeps in it all the time and said it is very comfy. Thank you, Sue in WV

Grandson's sleep hat
My grandson loves his new sleep cap. The only problem was the pompom came off the first time he wore it. It was held on by just one strand of yarn. I have since repaired it and he is using it again. Need to find a better way to secure the pompom and everthing else about the cap is great.

Staying warm is NOT over-rated
We live in the upper midwest in an old house...no hot-air register in the bedroom, just a vent from the kitchen below, which got covered over in the last owner's remodel and a baseboard heater that I am too cheap, er, frugal to use much. (In my family, the response was "put on a sweater," not "turn the heat up." I can't help it :D) And the down comforters are amazingly warm. However, while I have hair, my partner does not ... Now, those of you with actual late 20th c. central heating might not relate, but for our situation, the sleeping cap has been perfect, increasing the comfort of dear partner immensely!

Years of very warm heads
My partner puts on his flannel sleeping cap as soon as he arrives to our eco-friendly and temperature appropriate home. I have been purchasing these well made and very stylish caps for him for years and hope they will always be available!

"Me in my cap"
This cap is everything I hoped it would be. Its not too heavy, or hot; it just breaks the chill in my room. Its stretch is not too strong as to be uncomfortable overnight and its cut helps it fit my head without riding up and off. The tassel adds a little style to an already attractive product.

A rare find for a warm sleep
What a delightful discovery. For many years I struggled with partial attempts to keep my ears and head warm on those cold winter nights; tugging at the bed covers and trying to cover only my head and ears and not my breathing passages. It occurred to me that our ancestors may have had the right idea so long ago with a sleeping cap. So, one day I searched the internet looking for a "night cap". After rejecting many sites offering various alcoholic beverage recipes, I found precisely what I was looking for at the Vermont Country Store; a one size fits all Irish Cotton Flannel Sleeping Cap. I quickly submitted my order and received the cap several days later. This cap is exactly what I hoped for and is a blessing for warm and comfortable sleeping.
