Deima's cable balaclava
Our cable balaclava is made with soft and chunky cashmere yarn, as cables and cashmere are the ultimate luxury combination. The hat is knitted from the bottom up, with decreases in the back of the hat, and finally sewn together with a garter stitch. And lastly adding an elegant i-cord edge around the face opening for the final result. It is always recommended to rinse your cashmere cable balaclava in lukewarm water and let it dry flat before use. It opens up the fibers of the cashmere yarn and makes it even softer and fluffier.
