Coos Bay is home to some of the most desired oysters in Oregon and is a thriving center for aquaculture. The Coos Bay Beanie is our way to honor the beauty of the coast and the delicious riches it provides. Cables twist and twine over a background of sand stitch, blossoming into staggered bubbles filled with purls (or pearls!), creating a slouchy casual hat. Perfect for your next trip, regardless of whether it takes you to the mountains or the sea, this hat will keep you cozy as you explore our bountiful region.
