Wefted caps are also known as standard caps, capless wigs and thin-wefted.
This category contains both old and newer technologies in wig cap construction from a low-end of costume and catalog wigs to the higher technology of finer quality of wefted wigs with perma-tease at the scalp area giving a fuller look, adding lift, and creating volume at the crown. This also helps conceal the cap in a more modern way.
As an improvement in design, capless wigs moved away from the solid net cap by attaching the wefts to strips of lace. The result is a lighter wig that breathes more easily and is cooler to wear. Higher end capless wigs will often have a lace section at the crown allowing the wearer to part the wig to either side and brush the hair in any direction. Broader spacing between each individual weft indicates construction techniques known as “thin wefted”. The wider the gap between wefts the greater the wig's ability to breathe and disperse heat. In most cases, “thin-wefting” means that there will be no “lace top section.” Some “thin-wefted” caps are so thin that the wearer can incorporate their own hair through the cap. The benefit of this is lighter weight, blend of colors, and it actually gives a feeling of security. (See pull through caps
All wigs come with adjustment straps located at the nape of the neck. Most are Velcro, although some are hook and loop. These adjusters allow the wearer to ensure the wig fits snugly and securely.
