Knit from 100% merino wool, the Prospect Beanie is a warm and cozy topper made for easier days or just taking it easy. At Camp Tracksmith, athletes donned it for warm-ups, post-run fireside chats and into the evening.
Knit From 100% Merino Wool
Lay Flat To Dry
Do Not Bleach
Knit To Last
Named for our favorite loop in Brooklyn for a shakeout and post-run coffee, the Prospect Beanie is knit from a soft and durable 100% merino wool to ensure moisture management and resist odors. Finished with our Eliot hare logo, it's the kind of no-fuss essential you'll return to all season long.
What's In A Name
There are several names for a brimless knit hat. Our own resident Saskatchewanian, James Leakos, would prefer if we called it a “toque.” And such etymological debates make sense given the cap's history. The knit head covering has its roots back to medieval England, where the “Monmouth Cap” was worn by feudal laborers. It then came to North America on the heads of sailors and was adapted by workers through the Industrial Revolution. In WWII, the Navy issued navy knit “watch caps” to sailors to keep them warm on overnight duty. Fifty years later the cap went from naval to punk, when coopted by 90’s-era skaters who coined the term, “beanie.”
