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. Acquire your Fort Belvedere polka dot wool pocket square to create a classic outfit with a twist. This blue merino wool handkerchief with brown polka dots pairs particularly well with navy, charcoal and brown suits but also works with green or lighter colors. Of course it is also suited to casual fabrics such as Tweed and sport coats. This handkerchief is delicately screen printed by hand and is available in 3 other colorways. All of these polka dot squares, feature contrasting hand-rolled edges.
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 contrast edges, this pocket 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 polka dots 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.
