Otto & Spike Base - Merino Beanie (Black)
Unisex Beanies - Base
Planning on climbing Mount Everest anytime soon? Then this is the beanie for you. Made from two deluxe layers of Australian Extrafine Merino Wool, this beanie is sure to keep your head toasty and warm. No matter which base camp you choose, Nepal or Tibet, we can guarantee that it’s going to be chilly. Both base camps are over 5000 metres above sea level, a perfect place to acclimatise before heading off on the adventure ahead. Merino wool fibres absorb moisture, up to 36% of its own weight! This means moisture is absorbed away from your skin. What a clever fibre, whilst it absorbs sweat, it repels light rain. We think this makes a perfect little hiking companion.
~ Made in Melbourne from premium Australian extrafine Merino wool.
~ Beanie dimensions are 21cmw x 24cmh.
Otto and Spike is as much about a place as a product. We have been knitting in Brunswick (an inner suburb of Melbourne) for the last 50 years. Melbourne is a great place to knit because you never know when that scarf or beanie will come in handy! Wearing warm woollies is part of life for the Melbourne dweller and they love rugging up in winter whether it be to go see the footy, explore her many laneways, feast from her food trucks or take to her slopes.
