Finding Your Size

Every headband is hand made, from the spinning of the husky fiber, the knitting and the sewing of the polar fleece liner.

Our headbands have about an inch to an inch and a half of stretch on the top of the band with more flex towards the bottom. The tight top assures a proper fit even as you wear it over time. All our measurements are taken INSIDE the headband circumference lying on a flat surface.

To find your size take a headband you own, lay it flat, measure with a ruler on the INSIDE of your headband then times that number by two. This will be your circumference and how we measure our sizes.

If you do not have a headband of your own find a flexible measuring tape and wrap it around your head in the place you would comfortably wear a headband, across your forehead, over your ears, etc.

A short piece of string will also work. Measure the circumference of your head with the string, mark where it ends, lay it flat on the table and measure with a straight ruler. This will be your total circumference.

 

The Husky Hair Process

In the warmth of spring our sled dogs no longer require their insulating uncoat of fur. As it is naturally shed away each dog is brushed and groomed to help release this soft fiber. It is then collected, washed, spun and knit into unique husky items for you to enjoy!

Each husky hair creation is as unique as the husky who donated the fur as the color of their undercoat can vary from year to year. We do not dye our husky fiber but rather let our husky's true colors shine through.

All husky hair items you see here in our store are make from pure 100% husky. We do not mix our fiber with wool, alpaca or any other fiber. Each item remains true to the husky who donated the fiber and comes with a care card identifying which husky donated the fiber!

No part of the husky hair process is outsourced or sent out of state, all work is done here, making this product not only a unique Alaskan made item but a great way to show your support as all proceeds from our gift shop sales go right back to support the Sled Dog Sanctuary.
