Our SUPER Long Fleece Hats

When we weren't able to find any weird/cool ski hats in the stores around here, I got online and discovered these REALLY great hats made by a man in Virginia named Ryan Williamson.  His company is called TheMouseWorks and you should really check out his unique polar wear.  Not only is it made from recycled fleece, Ryan also generates nearly ZERO trash because he recycles everything, and he sleeps outside most of the time!  An interesting fella to say the least.  Anyway, my dear friend Elizabeth got Ken and I each a hat for Christmas and now they are the only hats we wear skiing.  They are so long, 4 feet long to be exact, that you can wrap the tail around your face and neck as a scarf or you can let it fly and slap people with it as you ski past them.  We get LOTS of compliments on them.  Here are a few pics of us wearing our hats at WCSA yesterday:

Me sitting proudly by my Fatypus E-motion skis.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!


  1. Hi Jen and Ken! What a neat idea of being able to wrap the tail end of the hat around your neck--or not. Smart! I can just picture them straight out in back as you are flying down the slope. Our snow is melting (yea!)

  2. Hi Joy! Our hats are so much fun! They are so warm than unless it's really cold out, we don't wear them.
