A knitwear Faberge
There is some much detail to this piece that we have named it the Faberge egg of the balaclava’s. Two 2/30 Nm threads applied in three different stitches, a 3D knit structure and a double sided fabric make this a unique piece from top to bottom. Throughout the entire knit construction two threads in different shades of Merino wool are used to creates a nice contrast, giving it subtle mélange.
A demonstration of what you can achieve with only natural materials and modern knitting craftsmanship. When the temperatures drop this balaclava will protect you, in style, from the sharp winds that can whip you in the face during winter season.

Our informal instructions
This head piece could not be easier to care for, that is, if you choose to care for it all. If you do, we recommend a gentle wash by hand, with a soft detergent intended for wool fibers.
In case the rib starts to lose its elasticity, you can easily recover it by using a steamer or an iron with a steam function. Do not press the iron on the rib but hoover it over.
