Smooth organic interlock merino wool knit with flat seams that breaths and doesn’t itch. The balaclava is available in two different sizes. The smaller usually fits newborns (0-3 months) and the larger until the first birthday (3-12 months).
Made out of 100% certified and breathable organic merino wool. The undyed and unprocessed wool is safe also for babies. Pure wool keeps you warm even when damp, neutralizes odors and doesn’t require frequent washing. Wool with no synthetics mixed in is also a fire-resistant material that returns to nature at the end of its life cycle.
Hand-made in Artjärvi Finland. No washing required before use.
Wool neutralizes odors and often airing is enough to keep wool clothes fresh
Summer storage in the original sealable plastic bag (wash before storage)

Wool slightly shrinks in the first wash and this has been taken into consideration in the sizing
Wool becomes slightly softer in the first wash which adds to comfort
Our certified and mulesing-free organic merino wool comes from Argentina and Uruguay
Certificate sets standards for good animal care in nutrition, protection and health care etc.
The sheep are grazing free year around excluding the annual shearing procedure and local authorities train and monitor professional shearers
The merino wool used is up to seven time finer than the wool from Finnish sheep and therefore feels pleasant against skin
Wool’s excellent insulation qualities are due to wool’s wavy structure
Pure wool breaths and keeps you warm even when moist

Our organic wool is knitted in Finland
The products are made and packed by Ruskovilla’s own professionals in Artjärvi Finland
The products are not finished with repellents harmful to humans or nature
The surplus wool swathes are a part of our ecological production: white wool is carded for duvet and pillow filling and colorful wool gets used in other manufacturing companies for making oil absorbent rugs and parquet underlays
All our products are manufactured using 100% renewable energy, and we utilize renewable geothermal heat in keeping our manufacturing, storage and production facilities warm
Ruskovilla balaclava and mittens, those are our favorite products that have been used as long as they have fitted. And then they have been passed on to little cousins.

Wool balaclavas I've bought to all of the babies in our extended family since at least our hot heads always ended up having soaking wet cotton balaclavas.
