Manx Loaghtan hairband earwarmer
The gorgeous toffee brown colour of this hand-knitted hairband is the natural colour of the undyed wool. It comes from the British "Manx Loaghtan" breed of sheep. I have knitted this stylish headband in a cable design. It is naturally stretchy for a comfortable fit.
Teen to Adult average head size, approx 54-64cm, (21-25 inches), and 5cm (2") wide, so great as an ear-warmer. Hand washing is best to keep wool in top condition, but if your machine has a cool/gentle/wool setting then that works too!

I do my best to support British farmers by buying British wool wherever possible, and I am proud to be a supporter of the Campaign for Wool.
I love the variety of sheep breeds that are raised in the UK, and especially some of the unusual and rare breeds.
