Necessity is the mother of invention is a proverb that couldn’t be true. The need for the perfect wool cap with knit-rib ear protection came from years of running outboard motors up and down the White River of Arkansas on January duck hunting trips. The Sportsman’s Wool Cap has a distinctive style, and stretches and insulates making it ideal for any hunting, fishing, or general outdoor use. Wear the ear flaps up on mild days or slide them down for just the right cover on cold days. Made of 100% wool with a polyester knit-rib ear cover, nature’s perfect insulator, and a cotton-spandex blended material for the knit-rib ear cover.
