Material care: Merino wool is a very fine wool, which must be carefully cared for. Although washing with a washing machine is allowed by the manufacturer of the wool, we do not recommend it. If you decide to do so, you should wash the headband only on the gentle cycle. At the same time, we do not recommend washing it together with velcro fastener, rough buckles, etc. Do not use fabric softener! The headband should be dried freely unfolded, preferably in a place where there is a draft.
This headband is suitable for cold to frosty weather. It is suitable for less demanding activities because it is really warm. For winter walks through nature or city or for a trip to the mountains it is the perfect piece.
