Vermont Originals was founded in 1971 by a business professor from Cornell and one of his students as a case study on cottage industry for the Cornell Business School. All of our hats are 100% wool and knit in the traditional handcrafted manner by local knitters. Vermont Originals is the only hat company in Vermont that continues to use local knitters. Today Vermont Originals, as part of the Turtle Fur family, continues this fine tradition of Made in Vermont, USA.
All our hats are knitted in the traditional handcrafted manner. Passed down from generation to generation, our knitters in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, craft each hat by hand.
We use high grade 100% Wool Yarn for every one of our hats. All of our yarn is skein dyed to make sure the colors are rich and consistent. Double waxing the yarn ensures that it knits smoothly to avoid snags and flaws.
Fleece for Extra Warmth
We line all our heavy wool hats with high quality polar fleece. The fleece lining not only provides extra warmth but keeps your head from itching.
Our customers tell us every day that we make the best hat they have ever owned. Of course, we believe they are right.
