The Germanic and Norse peoples have been using wool to create garments for thousands of years and it still represents one of the best fabrics found. As always: nature got it right. We named this item after the viking settlement of Staithes in Yorkshire.
Wool works to regulate your body temperature, keeping you warm when you need it but allowing your body to breath to reduce perspiration. This yarn is surprisingly durable for its softness; meaning that taken care of properly it should last for 10 years or more. For best endurance, avoid washing, as wool is antimicrobial, simply hang it outside in a good breeze to freshen it up.
