Utilizing 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 a subtle mélange. When the temperatures drop this The Merino Balaclava will protect you, in style, from the sharp winds that can whip you in the face during winter season. 

The ’Clava is a demonstration of what you can achieve with only natural materials and modern day knitwear craftsmanship. 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.

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.
