Wear this light and airy neckwarmer in everyday life during the cold season. Or head out into nature for a walk, a run, a bicycle ride or a cross country ski tour - the close fitting, tube shaped neckwarmer made from soft and cosy wool will keep you warm.

The First Snowfall Neckwarmer is worked seamlessly in the round. A puzzle of different snowflakes and the change of the main color in the middle of the work will keep you entertained. And you will get two accessories in one, as you can wear this neckwarmer either with the light or the darker side up.
