Archival Beanies

Random Merino Beanie Hat

Border Beanie Hat

Solid Beanie Hat

Wigwam Mills Oslo Beanie

Friend Rick is looking for an off-the-peg, grey wool beanie he can wear until he secures a replacement for a recently lost, hand knit version.

I suggested Vermont Originals as a commercial wool beanie resource. I found Vermont Originals by way of Rivendell Bicycle Works. Several years back, Riv switched vendors from Wigwam to VO for their signature striped beanie.

I'm a fan of striped hats (grey-black is best), though I do like Riv's solid, thin wool beanies. However, I'm waiting for Riv to cycle through their current, lt. blue and and lilac color offerings.

100% worsted wool, similar to Filson at 1/3 the price. Any color you want as long as that happens to be black or brown. Might qualify as an apocalypse item.
