Long Merino Wool Benies handmade crocheted with no-mulesing and organic extra-fine merino wool (Global Organic Textile Standard) yarns.
Merino comes from organic farms in New Zealand or extensive Italian farms and is dyed and conditioned in Italy with natural chlorine free. Organic farms do not use pesticides and wool has no trace of chemicals that could come in contact with your skin.
The benies are made as part of the ELBEC Manifattura Diffusa project in Val Pettorina and are reinforced with an extra fine Merino Jersey inner band that increases strength and warmth.
Not suitable for wearing under a helmet
These handmade beanies are not reinforced with a merino inside band and are more suitable for the intermediate seasons. If you are chilly this is not the hat for you, better choose a benies from the Classic Strong line.
This product is designed to be worn after sports to protect from the cold but not an extreme cold. At the same time these benies are very pleasant and soft thanks to their moderate warmth and the very high quality of the wool! And they are too cool!
If you want to use the benies under a helmet this product is not suitable for you! This has a more elongated shape and therefore tends to curl under the helmet. Try to look at our crochet beanies like the Classic Short and the Vanzarot which thanks to their slimmer hat shape are also perfect under a helmet and under an hood!
Otherwise have a look to our specific merino hunderhelmet!
