    Woolpower LITE is our thinnest fabric. It is a cool and comfortable material that is best worn nearest the body. LITE is tight knitted and therefore cooler, even though it actually contains more wool than our undergarments made of Ullfrotté Original. LITE is good for using in slightly warmer conditions, as the fabric helps to cool down your body. But it also keeps you warm when it’s cold out. Balaclava LITE fits snugly against your face and is thin, but protects well against the cold nonetheless.

    So far, no man-made fibres have been able to replicate all the unique qualities of wool. The garment doesn’t smell bad if you sweat, for example. It also keeps you dry as the wool can absorb up to 30 per cent of its own weight in moisture without even feeling damp. But if you really get wet, the balaclava will keep you warm anyway. It’s because of a chemical process within the wool called absorption heat. Woolpower LITE can be washed at 60 degrees.

    LITE is sewn by our seamstresses in Östersund, but the fabric is knitted in Norrköping before that.
