About this Product

Daylight is cutting short and that foretells winter is approaching.
Over here in the Pacific North West winter can mean chill to the bone temperatures with a sneering wind that takes one's breath away, literally.
But that's not all. This beautiful white wonderland comes with yet another remarkable peculiarity.

If you are anything like me, you won't notice until after breathing through your nostrils purposefully that something is not like usual. Little ice pegs have formed around the tiniest little hairs inside your nose and now you are wondering if that's really frozen hair, or is it?!! And of course, you didn't bring a mirror, it's the Pacific North West after all.

So you see, this is just the perfect solution. You could cover your whole face when it's really cold, but it is hard to see that way or open up the hat more to show off your gorgeous face.

Hand-knit in ridiculously soft 100% merino wool to keep your head warm and toasty even in cold winter weather. None of the itchy-itchy either! Easily slips over your head and stays there. No need to struggle with ties to keep it in place.

. Balaclava will fit up to a US size 24".
. Easily slips over your head.
. Gift for him, her, or yourself.
. Adult size.
. 100% merino wool.

Balaclava care:
For best care wash hat by hand in hand warm water max 30°C / 86F in a wool wash product like SOAK. No rinsing required! Roll hat in a towel and squeeze gently to remove excess water. Dry flat.

**This hat is hand knit just for you, please allow 2 weeks to complete**

Although I try to depict colors accurately, they can still slightly differ due to computer monitor settings.

Meet the Maker

Hello, welcome to B'cause of You, my name is Diana. 

Growing up in Europe, I had no idea that my love for the fiber arts would come from things I'd see daily. In awe, I would watch the women from the fishing villages along the Dutch coast knit in front of their nostalgic houses, creating the most beautiful lace shawls or sturdy fishermen's sweaters. That's when I learned that knitting while you walk is a possibility too! They would use their own patterns and share them with other women in the village or teach them to their daughters. Because of the distinct patterns, their work could easily be recognized and linked to the town it was from.

It is no wonder that creating both art and sustainable wear go hand in hand for me. I LOVE playing with yarn and seeing how a vision turns into a creation. I am amazed at the versatility of yarn. Here is this thread, some knitting sticks or a crochet hook, inspiration, and voila, a functional piece of clothing.

From picking the finest yarn to creating an heirloom from your vision, or a functional piece for everyday wear, it is my goal to make something you will love and that expresses who you are.

Feel free to click the contact link if you have any questions.

I'm here to help.
