A thick, warm merino wool knit tube scarf, long enough to cover neck and head and can be folded in half for extra warmth and insulation. The camouflage is strangly similar to the Finnish army M05 camo: we took the pattern, enlarged and simplified it a bit to better work in wool knitwear, the end result is pretty darn neat!

Särmä viscose hoodie, black

Särmä viscose hoodie, black

49.99 - 59.99 EUR

We already made a superior hoodie out of Merino wool, but that stuff is expensive. For the plebs is available this cheaper option which retains the superb cut and features and while not as fancy as the woollen one, still works like that to a degree - at less than half the price! If you just need a damn well designed hoodie for casual use, this is the ticket.

The Finnish army "commando cap" is far more than just any woolly watch cap, it's something of a Finnish military tradition and very functional too, the double layered constrution giving it added warmth and insulation.

Unlike most wool caps these are made with a double layered construction, the end result is far more insulating than the standard one layer style, a neat feature in extreme cold. Still as these don't have any membranes or such the wool breathes naturally, meaning that even though warm these are not too hot or sweaty like many modern caps with Windstopper etc. All in all a very classic and functional design!

This is modeled after the famous Finnish Army Sissipipo, or "sissy cap". The heritage comes from sissies, who are the most special commando-ranger troops in the Finnish military, true forest men sent into the woods with just a puukko, bare teeth and an assault rifle with one magazine, capable of living off the land and waging 30 years of guerilla warfare against the ever present threat of Russian invasion.

Size info

Because of the bit less flexible weave we decided to make these in two sizes. Medium fits head size up to 57-58 cm, Large is best for bigger noggins. We drew the line at 62, but this will probably stretch enough for an even bigger head if necessary.

Quality merino wool

Wool is super. Merino wool is even better; does not itch, insulates and regluates temperature better, gathers even less nasty smells (and most smells vanish with simply airing out the cap). Of course the catch is a higher pricetag. If you can live with that, we strongly suggest grabbing one of these.

Wool weight about 410 g/m2.

All our merino wool clothing are 100% mulesing free!
