This sweet hand-knitted baby band is knitted for comfort with n a loose stitch. The forgiving circumference rests at 16 inches with a cozy 5 inch band. It is knitted in the seed stitch with a three ply worsted spun yarn and an Aran weight more or less. This is 100% Merino wool from the Malabrigo line in Uraguay. The roving is hand-spun and then hand knitted. The beautiful dye is non toxic and the roving is mulesing free. We do not use super wash rovings to avoid the chemical complexities.
