Mom Made is Better than Home Made

We are Red Hat Factory. We are here for one thing. Delivering to you

the one hand knit beanie to rule them all.

Knit by my mom in Norway – specifically, on the Norwegian south coast, where the story began.

Growing up, I always wore hand crafted, woolen wearables, and did not at all realize the heritage ingrained in such gifts — until one day I grew old enough to understand that my mother is in possession of a legendary crafting skill, passed down from one generation to the other.

Red Hat Factory emerged out of this realization.

Read the story

Every Red Hat Factory cap is hand knit

in about four work hours, and we do not intend to speed up the process.

In a world of mass production and factories, we want to celebrate the slow and steady hand craft ingrained with years of heritage.

A mother teaching a daughter to knit, and a son building a brand around it to honor the slow development of crafted goods. It is my mother sitting in her favorite chair, slowly knitting, while their little dog runs around playing with her favorite toy.

You might say the name Red Hat Factory is used sarcasticly, though my mother is producing knitted goods like one.

We have a decade long guarantee on stitches coming loose, or threads snapping from years of wear. Send it back, and we’ll patch it up and ensure a long life and time to develop a heritage of its own.

An investment in one of our caps is a long term investment. It will stay with you through rain and sun, and only gain more character as it ages.

Our caps are 80% pure sheep wool

, the wool type handpicked from South America and imported to a Norwegian mill, where it is processed.

The South American sheep are chosen over the Norwegian ones, because the wooly cousins down south yield just a bit softer wool.

After more than a year of testing, we went as natural and classic as we could, but decided to keep to a blend of nylon for extended durability.

Take care of your 80% of wool
