Why Merino Wool?
MACHINE WASH AND DRY
Total Easy Care (TEC) Merino apparel is designed for today's busy lifestyle. Total Easy Care Merino garments are all machine-washable, and are suitable for tumble drying.
Even after frequent laundering they retain an 'as new' appearance. They won't shrink, lose their shape, fade or color-bleed. They remain soft and comfortable for the life of the garment.
I bought this Balaclava almost a year ago. I wear it riding my bike to from work (17.5 miles). I only wear it when it’s below 40 degrees F. As it is too warm otherwise. It is just right for cycling and fits under my helmet nicely. I’ve cycled with this on down to around 20 degrees and have been plenty warm, in fact it is usually soaked with sweat when I get to work but I am never cold even when soaked.
This is the stuff! We love that you are using the Brushed Wool Balaclava to help when you have a chilly commute! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review!
I got this before going on a camping/hiking trip in the mountains of Colorado. The average altitude we were at was around 10,500ft with a max about 13,000t. A large cold front hit and the temps were in the teens for a high. At one point the temperature went to a bitter -11 Fahrenheit with 20mph winds. This performed better than I thought it would. With the hard gusts you felt a little wind make it through but other than that it was fantastic.
Glad to hear our Kodiak Fleece Brushed Balaclava - Expedition layer, gave you protection against the bitter cold mountains of Colorado.

With out wind block material in it, I don't care how thick the wool is the wind blows through it.
Overall a well made piece of gear, however, it fits to large on my head. Other wool balaclavas I own don’t have this issue. I do like that is has enough material to tuck in my sweater, which is great because it doesn’t come out when I look up or move my head around. Craftsmanship and quality of the material is good, which is very important to me. If you have a huge head and neck you will love this balaclava.
