MLB Authenticated Game Used World Series Baseballs were used to make this collection of beanies knit from the 130 yards of usable wool yarn strands that are found inside a ball. Select your Team. The hat is knit in the order of the wool layers as they appear inside a baseball: outer gray, white, and inner gray. The yarn is then softened and the inside of the hat is lined with alpaca wool yarn for extra comfort.
Crafted in Southern California, every hat is skillfully woven on a hand-operated knitting machine by a single craftsman. Each beanie comes in a MLB gift box with a story card.

How A Ball Winds Up Becoming a Ball
Balls are made by hand in Central America at a Rawlings factory. At a baseball's core is a small rubber ball called the “pill”. Around this pill, a layer of gray yarn is wound. Next up comes a cream colored yarn and then another layer of gray. Its finished off with a thin, white thread. In all, some 130 yards of yarn are needed to build the core to regulation size. From there, two leather outers are stitched with the familiar red thread, the ball is stamped with logos and a game-ready Major League baseball is born.
