AHOY! Convoys Avast! New Warm Wools for the Long Watch.


:Attention Papa Nui.Stop.Send more stuff.Stop.Convoys in the North Pacific and Liberty Ships bound for the Aleutians require warm wools for the long watch.Stop.Please help.Stop:

    Deep within the jungle curtain that conceals Papa Nui's secret island hideaway, an urgent message reaches the base signals office. A cry of help from the highest authority, The War Production Committee!
    The Papa muses. The cold remote North Pacific, immense, wild, watery and unshored. Not an environment close to the Papa's heart, perhaps its time to call in the big guns? 
    The Papa attempts to pull off a collab bigger than the Potsdam Agreement. England, Japan can you help? The answer? Negative! The initiative dead in the water. What to do?
An idea emerges, grows, the Papa breaks out the archives and researches. A decision is reached a battle cry declared.

KNIT FOR VICTORY!


   The Papa backs the attack one stitch at a time by assembling his team of expert knitters. They turn dense warm pure Australian Merino into a 10 ply service wool wonder, The Convoy Cap!
    Conceived from original Red Cross wartime patterns the Merino yarns are knitted in deckwatch black to create a Convoy Cap that will hold you through the darkest night, through tempest and typhoon and through winds as direful as any that lash the salted waves. 
     The Papa has done it again protecting the lifeline of freedom, providing you with non-regulation essentials for your kit.
     Help the Papa celebrate our heroic crews on the surface and beneath the silent seas.
Papa Nui's new Convoy Cap comes in deckwatch black and is free-sized. Each cap has been lovingly recreated with authentic details that include a circular needle construction technique ensuring no rubbing seams for maximum comfort, plus an original WWII redcross woven label as well as the addition of a period patriotic tinny pocket topper.
