Pattern Hats - $45
Hand knit in Icelandic Lopi.  Lopi is a breed of sheep that dates back to the Viking Age.  Today these sheep bear the world’s longest and lightest wool - natural insulation - which is both windproof and water repellent. This wool is perfect for the Adirondack winters - tough and durable, but still soft and light-weight.

In addition to the natural sheep colors there are over 100 colors available. The color combinations listed for each pattern are our best sellers - feel free to come up with your own personal color combination.
