Thanks to its multi-use design, the Capilene Air Gaiter can function as a balaclava, a neck gaiter or a lightweight beanie. Made from an airy blend of 51% merino wool and 49% Capilene recycled polyester, Capilene Air feels light and soft on the skin, insulates even when wet and dries quickly. We create the soft 18.5-micron-gauge yarns used in Capilene Air with an innovative airblasting technology that dramatically increases the yarn's loft while reducing weight compared to traditional wool yarn. Our seamless 3-D construction eliminates chafe points and nearly eliminates wasted material. Soft for all-day comfort and easily stuffable so you can take it everywhere.
