No one likes cold ears. Frozen lobes. Frosty tabs. A woolly headband keeps your ears warm but stops your head getting too hot...

Made using 100% sheep’s wool in a patterned knit, the Birsay is lined with microfleece for a soft feel against your skin. A single knit thickness offers lighter weight warmth.

Nature’s great insulator, wool makes a great material for keeping your noggin warm. Plus, it’s highly breathable and odour resistant, so you can wear it more and wash it less.

Each wool headband from Black Yak is hand-knitted in Nepal. As well as being certified fair trade, a proportion of Black Yak’s sales go back into the communities that make them.
