Best Made Co. X Bolt Threads

Hurry and Grab One of These Uniquely-Engineered Beanies While They Last

December 7, 2017 Style By

Earlier this year, Bolt Threads — a company that engineers textiles from naturally-derived proteins — acquired NYC-based outdoor brand Best Made Co, and the fruits of that ownership are starting to pay off with a new, (very) limited-run beanie created by the two brands. The Cap of Courage is made from a unique blend of Rambouillet wool, and “Microsilk,” a protein fiber engineered by Bolt Threads with the same molecular structure as spider silk.

Bolt Threads maintains that synthetic spider silk will be the future of menswear thanks to a high tensile strength, elasticity and a soft feel. It certainly seems fitting for a beanie, and the end result is a unique, winter-ready garment made from naturally-derived materials. The cap is currently available in a selection of colorful striped patterns at Best Made Co.’s site, though given that only 100 caps total will be made, they’re selling out fast. Move quickly if you’re interested.
