USA Wool Felt

Our US-made wool felt hats are from a manufacturer that has been around for over 100 years. They have perfected the art of making wool felt fedoras, bowlers and other highly crafted headwear. The wool they use comes from Texas and goes through a rigorous process where the raw wool is first formed into loose cone shaped bodies. From there the cones are treated with pressure and hot water repeatedly; this combination of the pressure and heat begins to felt the wool fibers. The felt becomes tighter and denser as the process continues. Once the bodies are ready for use they are blocked by hand, the brims trimmed and shaped, and the final trims, lining and labeling applied. 

USA Mohair Acrylic

 

The USA made Mohair/Acrylic blend is a blend of two wonderful fibers. Mohair is a silk-like fiber made from the hair of the Angora goat. Known for its luster and sheen, mohair has great insulating properties, adding warmth to the finished yarn. Acrylic is incredibly versatile, bringing strength and malleability to the yarn. When spun together, these fibers create a yarn that lends itself well to a variety of styles.

Recycled cotton

Our recycled cotton yarn comes from a mill that specializes in repurposing waste from the apparel manufacturing process. The yarn is spun from re-milled fabric scraps and clippings. The base color of the original material is retained therefore less dyes and chemicals are used in the process. In addition the yarn has a heathered effect due to the mix of different scraps.

Merino wool

Merino is an amazing yarn with the ability to be both refined in look and tough in performance. Merino wool is not only finer and softer than other wool, it also has technical properties akin to what most people look for in synthetic performance fibers, such as wicking and insulation.

Lambswool

Lambswool is different from other wool in that wool fibers are shorter, making them softer. Lambswool characteristically is plush and more silky in-hand, compared to other wool, making it a great fiber for beanies. 

Recycled PET Yarn

 

PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is a plastic resin and also a form of polyester. Our recycled yarn comes from a certified mill that repurposes post-consumer waste in to usable materials. By reusing the material instead of virgin resins there is a reduction in energy consumption and reduced environmental impact. 

Moisture Wicking Yarn

Introducing a new yarn engineered to increase your comfort during physical activity. The polyester/cotton blend yarn has been developed to wick moisture so that you stay drier. This will help to keep your head cool, on hot and sweaty days, or to keep you comfortable on rainy and wet ones. 

Silky Acrylic

Silky acrylic differs from regular acrylic, in that during the yarn spinning process it goes through additional steps to impart the yarn with amazing softness, a silky texture, and a bit of sheen. 

Polyester Fleece 

Warm and insulating polyester fleece is used in a variety of our technical accessories to keep you bundled during the cold winter days. Fleece offers many of the same insulating properties of wool with out the weight or skin sensitivity associated with wool products. Our fleece styles are built to be ultra warm and to also work layered with other styles.

Waterproof Polyester 

 

The Fleece Hood SE utilizes polyester with a waterproof coating on the upper and back panels of the hood. This material is placed to repel rain and snow from the head, while still having all the comfort of the fleece on the inside.

Polyester Grid Fleece

Our polyester grid fleece is used in the BEB Light +, as well as at the face panels of the Fleece Hood SE and UHB +. This specially made material features plush inside fleece pile of all over squares. The grid pattern around the fleece is a lightweight jersey knit which allows for better air circulation and breathability while the fleece component keeps the face warm and protected.

Stretch Polyester

We have a diversity of stretch polyester fabrics throughout the Technical Accessories Collection. This fabric has been strategically placed in styles to optimize the fit and function. The top panels of the UHB and UHB+ utilize our classic moisture wicking stretch polyester, it is flexible and lightweight, allowing it to fit well under a helmet or beanie. For the Flex Balaclava, BEB Light and MTT we have sourced an all-new stretch polyester fabric, it is moisture wicking like seasons past but it also has an extra soft fleece like underside for increased comfort. The Tube is made of stretch polyester that is lighter in weight compared to the other styles, and features an ultra-smooth fabric finish on both sides. The Tube is also moisture wicking and antibacterial. The stretch polyester used in the Warm Up has a lofty, fleece like inside that is super soft to keep you extra cozy and warm.

Windproof Stretch Polyester Nylon

This super tech fabric is used on the side panels of the UHB +. The fabric placement is to ensure protection of the ears, neck and face. The fabric's smooth woven outer is backed in a soft micro pile fleece for warmth and comfort, while the fabric's breathable, windproof and water resistant properties work to keep moisture under control and the elements out. The features of this fabric are optimal for adventure at higher elevations or those extra stormy days.

Moisture Wicking Fabrics

 

The technical collection has many styles utilizing moisture wicking technology. The wicking properties of each fabric helps absorb or draw off liquid by capillary action; once absorption occurs the moisture is spread out across the fabric so that the material dries faster. This will help keep your moisture levels regulated on both hot and sweaty days or super wet ones.

Moisture Wicking Mesh

For additional performance there is an added moisture wicking mesh lining at the inside front panel of the Flex. The open structure of the mesh allows for better breathability and air circulation, and the moisture wicking feature ensures water and sweat control.

Antibacterial Fabrics


An antibacterial property is built into the stretch polyester fabric used for the Tube and exists naturally in Merino wool. These fabrics are resistant to mold and bacteria growth, which reduces odors and maintains freshness. The styles utilizing these materials have increased longevity because mold and bacterial growth is controlled preventing degradation of the product.

Merino Wool

Merino wool helps to normalize body temperatures by supplying warmth without being too hot and by wicking moisture. Merino wool is water absorbent like other natural fibers, however even when wet it holds onto heat, therefore you won't get cold after getting soaked from rain or sweat. Merino contains Lanolin, which has antibacterial properties. With its naturally insulating, moisture wicking and antibacterial assets Merino wool is an exceptional choice for performance fabric.

Fine Acrylic

 

Fine acrylic yarn is both durable and soft. Acrylic is a great alternative to wool; it is non-itchy but like wool is very warm and can be used in variety of different types of styles.
