Aran headband neckwarmer; knit hairband; hair accessory; Aran scarf. Made in Ireland. Handknit headband. Aran hairband. Girlfriend gift.


Aran headband neckwarmer hairband: This Aran headband works doubly hard as it also makes a cosy neckwarmer! Knit (by me!) from 100% wool, the classic cream colour will go with everything. Use it in the summer to hold your hair back; use it in the winter to keep your neck warm. The beautiful yarn has a soft and fuzzy halo. Handknit seamlessly in the round, it is stretchy without being baggy. Unworn it measures around 16 inches/41 cm in circumference; 3 1/2 inches/9 cm in height.

I originally sold these headbands exclusively on the Aran Islands; now they are exclusive to my etsy shop.

I have been able to keep postage costs low, as the headband is not so heavy.

A quick word about alternatives available:
- I have two cream headbands of the exact same pattern available in acrylic wool; these do not have the soft halo, but have the benefit of being machine-washable without any special care. The wool headbands are machine-washable on a wool cycle, or handwash for a gentler result.

I also have a separate listing for a headband/neckwarmer of the same pattern, but in green tweed lambswool:

I am happy to make you a custom headband if you would like any other colour, at no additional cost if I have the colour you want already in stock. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for looking : )
