If you love spending time at the beach, pool, or lake, you need a Beachband! This functional knitted piece can be worn scrunched up as a headband or spread out to cover your wet or unkept hair. Knitted out of a rayon and linen blend or cotton and linen blend, you don’t have to worry about it being hot or the fact that you will get it wet in the pool. The Beachband is a great way to show off your knits in the summer while keeping you looking stylish! The button band allows for the perfect fit too!
