The Coronet Beanie has a relaxed fit and ski inspired stripes that makes it a great beanie to wear anywhere, from the slopes to city streets. It's made from a single layer no itch Merino wool blend knit Jacquard knit that insulates while staying breathable. Style and function in one smart package.
Single layer Jacquard knit
Icebreaker wrap label
50% Merino wool, 50% no-pill acrylic, 9 gauge
Wash like colours together (e.g. separate lights and darks)
Wash prints inside out
Close all zips
Use warm or cool machine wash on a normal cycle (avoid a hot wash, this contributes to shrinkage)
Use regular powder, liquid, or wool detergent (provided it does not contain softeners and that a normal wash cycle is used rather than delicate to ensure the full rinse out of the detergent)
Do not use bleach or fabric softener under any circumstances (your Icebreaker couldn't be any softer)
Wash occasionally with denim (e.g. jeans with the zip closed) or other coarse fabrics to remove any loose fibres
Do not iron prints or labels
Line dry garments or lie flat in the shade - do not tumble dry
Note: Hand washing can enable a residual build up of perspiration which could contribute to an odour problem.
Preventing and treating pilling: The best way to avoid pilling is to wash a new Icebreaker within 3 wears. To alleviate the pilling, Icebreaker suggest that you wash the garment with a coarser fabric such as denim jeans (ensure all zips are closed). The fabric will improve over time as the shorter fibres are removed.
