Not Just a Hat.
Not Just a Hat. A revolution. In the 1950s, "Ma" Moriarty knitted ski caps in her farmhouse in Stowe, Vermont. Her son sported one in the 1956 Olympics. It became a thing.
Whether you were an avid skier, instructor, or tourist, you wanted to board at Ma's house and get one of her hats. Soon she was employing home knitters in droves to fill orders. The United States Government tried shutting her down, fearing the hardworking women nestled in the mountains of Vermont—making caps and earning a living—somehow ran askew of fair labor practices (they didn't). Today, the Moriartys are still making the grooviest ski cap that ever was and ever will be.
Moriarty Ski Cap (No. 6434). Loomed from Maine-made worsted wool with an uber- comfortable poly microfleece headband. Incredibly warm and cool (stylistically speaking). A piece of American history. Just make sure the seam is worn fore and aft (so you don't look like a tourist). Made in Stowe, Vermont.
