The Nor'easter Cap of Courage

Made entirely in New York, this cap is knit from a remarkably soft and durable wool blend designed to protect you from the elements all winter long. We worked with small farms to highlight the natural shades of their sheep, sorting the wool by color to create our own hues — without the use of dyes.

Story

Made in New York from start-to-finish, this cap is knit from a remarkably soft and durable blend of Romney and Corriedale wool designed to protect you from the elements all winter long. To create our own special hues without the use of dyes, we worked directly with small farms to highlight the natural shades of their sheep, sorting the wool by color.The Nor’easter is an adaptation of our classic Cap of Courage with a thicker yarn, featuring rib construction with shaping. Wool is naturally fire- and odor-resistant, easy to care for, temperature regulating, and 100% biodegradable, making this the perfect piece for adventures big and small.

To create the unique yarn for our Nor’easters, we partnered with Battenkill Fibers and New York Textile Lab. Battenkill Fibers provides custom carding and spinning services for fiber farms, manufacturing natural, artisan quality yarn using traditional semi-worsted milling machinery. New York Textile Lab connects designers, farmers, and manufacturers in pursuit of growing an economically diverse textile supply chain within the state.
