Wool pocket squares add some finesse and textural contrast to your outfit when paired with a silk tie. Once you have a few classic linen and silk pochettes, wool pocket squares are a great next step. Get your Fort Belvedere merino wool pocket square in hand printed red the perfect fall outfit. It pairs especially well with all kinds of brown, blue, grey or charcoal jackets or suits in wool, cashmere or blends. Likewise, it works with most tweeds and flannels. This Fort Belvedere handkerchief is delicately screen printed by hand with a red background and brown, blue, brown & white patterned diamonds, and it features a hand-rolled contrast edge.
All Fort Belvedere wool pocket squares are created exclusively from the fibers from Merino sheep, a breed that delivers finer and softer wool than any other sheep. Unlike silk, our 100% Merino wool is highly wrinkle resistant, resulting in a beautiful, crisp drape that allows for more interesting folds.
Fort Belvedere pays particular attention to detail in creating accessories, and as a result these wool pocket squares have the perfect size, which is much smaller than a linen or silk pocket square due to the thicker fabric. Unlike 12" silk pocket squares, Fort Belvedere wool handkerchiefs will not disappear in your chest pocket because of the textured wool that provides more grip.
Fort Belvedere Pocket Squares are always meticulously hand-rolled, a feature that is further accentuated by the richly colored edges. Because of the different colors present, this redpocket square is a 2-in-1 combination in which you can wear the colored edges showing or hidden. This kind of 'framing' requires particular skill of the seamstress to maintain symmetry. The mix of pattern in the center and colored edges allows you to change the appearance of this pocket square depending on the fold.
Generally, wool is not prone to wrinkle, but if it does, iron it with the printed side down and covered with a linen or cotton cloth. Use medium to low heat with steam or a few sprinkles of water, and avoid flattening the rolled edges.
