Next to "will your headcovers fit my 460cc driver" (and the answer is yes!) is, "are your headcovers waterproof?" I guess we need to talk wool here. All the headcovers we offer that are wool are 100% wool. We love wool and there is a good reason for this. Wool is environmentally sustainable, fire-resistant, UV and stain resistant, long-lasting, and WATER RESISTANT.
Each year sheep grow a new fleece making wool a renewable resource. Wool is also biodegradable providing soil nutrients as it decomposes naturally. And as a natural product, wool requires less processing than man-made fibers.
Naturally flame-resistant, wool is harder to ignite than any other textile such as nylon, polyester, and cotton. The temperature needs to reach a searing 570-600°C before wool will ignite. With cotton, it’s less than half that. If wool does catch fire, it smolders and self-extinguishes, and crucially does not melt. Hopefully, your game is on fire, but not your headcover!
Wool’s waxy coating provides a protective outer layer which means spills and spots are not easily absorbed and are less likely to leave a stain. Wool is also ideal for sun protection with UV radiation being absorbed.
Consider wool products as an investment. They just keep giving. If well cared for, a wool headcover will last a lifetime. A wool fiber can bend an incredible 20,000 times before it breaks. As a comparison, cotton breaks at a rate of seven times faster. Naturally elastic, wool keeps its shape so your headcovers will continue to look good.
Lastly, and what we wanted to cover here is, there is a good reason fishermen of old chose to wear heavy-knitted jumpers when they headed out to sea. WATER-RESISTANT, WOOL REPELS MOISTURE DROPLETS. It can absorb up to a third of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet. Only when saturated with 30% of its own weight will it feel wet to the touch.
So let us talk about the care of your headcover. When you are playing in a rainstorm out on the course (as Max and Drew do in Portland, OR), when you get home just lay out your headcovers so they can air-dry overnight and they should look good as new. Never put them in the dryer.
