A cap is an absolute necessity for any woman in the 18th century. While caps range from simple to extravagant, the basic round-eared style is commonly found. The linen makes these easy to wash and durable, as well as gives you a perfectly historical look with an appropriate fabric. The pleated front linen cap has a wide caul and a modest pleat edging the front and around the ears. The small drawstring in the back ensures one size fits all.
