Lady Grey

A slight more delicate companion to Earl Grey. This beautiful hat features pretty cables and striking columns of eyelets. The soft and luxurious yarn combined with a touch of elegant slouch creates a gracefully stylish and deliciously warm hat. Available in three sizes.

The tea: Lady Grey is a variation on the traditional Earl Grey, usually featuring Seville oranges and Lavender flavours alongside the traditional Bergamot oil. Named after Mary Elizabeth Grey, the wife of Charles Grey (who Earl Grey is named after). Far from being a traditional brew Lady Grey is a modern invention created by Twinings in the early 1990s.
