The multi-tool of hats, the Patagonia Recycled Wool Ear Flap Cap keeps sun and snow out of your eyes, warms your ears, shields your neck and insulates your head.
It does all of this with a recycled polyester and recycled wool fabric blend with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to block moisture and increase durability. It’s lined with a lightweight polyester jersey for warmth. An itch-free sweatband, made from organic cotton twill, wicks moisture. We lined the earflaps and neck flap with high-pile fleece for extra warmth and a soft, skin-friendly feel. They can be tied up or down, depending upon the conditions and your prevailing mood. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn, which means the people who made it earned a premium for their labour.
This warm, breathable, classic earflap cap naturally repels water, insulates even when wet and wicks moisture. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

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.
