This organic merino wool balaclava for adults is made by Ruskovilla and is lightweight yet very warm and is perfect for the coldest winter days. It works nicely for layering underneath another hat, hood, or bike or ski helmet, keeping the neck, ears, cheeks, and head warm. Merino wool is breathable, soft and pleasant next to the skin, absorbs moisture without feeling damp, retains warmth very well, and does not require frequent laundering.
Ruskovilla has been manufacturing environmentally friendly textiles in Finland since 1981. They are deeply committed to quality during every phase of production; from the raw materials to the finished product, the company takes people and environment into consideration.
The wool is ethically produced organic merino wool from Argentina and Uruguay and is produced according to the criteria of IVN (Internationaler Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft e.V.). The yarn is spun by a German spinnery, and it is certified by IMO (Institute for Marketecology). The spinnery uses as few synthetic chemicals as possible for dying woollen yarn. The dying process takes place in closed system with the use of reactive dyes causing the fibres to react completly with the dye and preventing the dyes from running. Therefore, reactive dyes are safer option for garments that are in direct contact with the skin. No chrome dyes or heavy metal salts are used in the organic production process. Any harmless auxiliary products that are indispensible in the dyeing process are flushed out in the post-dyeing rinsing process.
Made in Finland.
Care: Hand wash and lay flat to dry. Wool does not soil easily and does not retain odors, so it does not need to be washed very frequently. Please refer to our Wool Care guide for more details, and don't forget your wool care products.
