I've been working on a new style of Alpine cap. Its exactly the same as my all merino wool Alpine cap with the exception of not being reversible. Why? Because it is thinner allowing it to fit better under a helmet and still have the same thick ear band to keep your ears warm. Also it is easier to make and uses less material allowing me to sell it for less. $40 is my price. These are still made from all salvaged merino wool sweaters with a durable foam bill insert. I still plan to make the reversible Alpine cap and Cascade cap. I'll get around to making this change on the website soon.

If you live in Portland or happen to be passing through Thursday Nov. 15th you should stop to check out BikeCraft. Its the third annual craft fair for bike related art and crafts being held at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub in NW from 6:00-9:00 PM. The event is put on by Jonathan Maus of www.bikeportland.org I will have a bunch of caps there for sale all marked at $5 off their retail price. I'm planning to also have some one-of-a-kind caps with added details like racing stripes and applique for those looking for a gift for their favorite cyclist. This event has been a real success in the past with tons of local artists selling all sorts of bike inspired art.
The above photo has nothing to do with Bike Craft but I wanted to show off my bounty. This is me feeling happy after harvesting some apples and birch bolete mushrooms! Yumm!
