    • Pick a real cap & hat sample in your local market and send it to the factory;

      • 100% cotton twill, or
      • 100% acrylic
    • There are rarely 100% wool cap since that will make your cap stiff. However, for those who have diabetics or skin allergies, they can only accept 100% organic cap & hat made of either cotton or hemp.
    • Typical sports cap (to provide more tight support) usually are made of 100% nylon or 100% spandex.
