We borrowed the design of a traditional Nordic hat, but made it with a contemporary 70% recycled wool/25% recycled nylon/5% other fiber fabric blend so you’ll stay warm and comfortable in a broad range of conditions. A fleece lining pampers your skin and wicks away moisture. True to its name, generous earflaps cover and protect your ears, and just for fun, we added braided tassels to them and one small pom to the top.
  • Soft recycled wool/recycled nylon blend keeps your head and ears warm on the coldest days
  • Fully lined with cozy fleece
  • Side flaps cover your ears for warmth and comfort
  • Two braided tassels on the earflaps and a small pom on top

Recycled Nylon

Although we’ve been using recycled polyester in our garments for 20 years, for some reason locked deep in polymer chemistry, nylon is more difficult to recycle than polyester. After years of research, development, and testing, we’re finally finding some recycled nylon fibers that are suitable for apparel.

Some of the recycled nylon we use comes from post-industrial waste fiber, yarn collected from a spinning factory, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fiber.

We’re diligently searching for a success story with recycled nylon. The challenge lies ahead of us, and we’re committed to discovering the best methods to recycle nylon fiber, but it appears this evolution will take many years.

Recycled Wool

One of the ways we can lessen the impact of wool production is to recycle used wool.

The practice of recycling wool dates back hundreds of years. After wool sweaters had been worn threadbare, they were collected and shredded into individual fibers and then converted into blankets.

Patagonia’s recycled wool comes from this same process. Aided by modern-day quality controls, the wool goes through a meticulous sorting of materials into color categories prior to shredding. By selecting and blending colors of dyed wool fabrics and garments, we can completely eliminate the dyeing process, saving water and chemicals and eliminating the resulting wastewater.
