Tom Clark and Jed McDonald are the Beanie Cap Guys. They live and work on a cattle ranch in the Wood River Valley in Idaho. Though neither of the guys was born in Idaho their families were among the first homesteaders in the southern part of the state in the late 1800s. Tracing some of their roots, Jed and Tom now call Idaho home.
Tom designs the one of a kind caps and Nekkers using yarns that he and Jed source from all over the planet. After the initial design is started the guys both finish crocheting them. They only use animal fibered yarns because they’re warmer, they wick moisture away from the head and they’re more durable than synthetic yarns.
For Jed and Tom it’s all about the yarns and the craftsmanship that goes into crocheting them.
