The Bearded Cap by Vík Prjónsdóttir

On the plane ride over I was reading the newest issue of Dwell, saw this, and was so very sad that I was on a plane and wouldn’t be able to post about it till later. I mean, how amazing is this Beard Cap? I would love to have one of those, especially being here in Boston. It’s made of wool and comes in 3 different colors and styles. I love that it covers almost your entire head, it looks sooooo warm.

It’s made by a design group called Vík Prjónsdóttir who work in Iceland and think of all sorts of ingenious ways of keeping people warm, like blankets made for two and “robes” shaped like seal pelts. Lots of weird, but fun, projects.

Update: Herman over at Doodybrain got in touch with Scandinavian Grace in Brooklyn and found out that they do carry these caps. They go for $135 a piece, and come in two different styles, long and short beard, and 4 different colors. Call or e-mail the store if you want to get one!
