Product: The Balto - Our Classic Crew Neck

November 09, 2017

Winter is coming and we've made a few changes to our popular Balto sweater. We started by using a new proprietary yarn developed and spun at our Italian mill. This yarn is slightly thicker, and contains a small percentage of long-staple wool to create an even and strong yarn that maintains the overall feel of yak. The added thickness gives the Balto a slightly more substantial feel without making it too bulky for everyday wear. Comfort and warmth that you barely notice.

New detailing includes wider ribbing at the hem, which keeps the fit flattering and the kidneys warm, and an unusual herringbone collar trim which helps it stand out from the multiple crew necks out there. As with all Khunu sweaters we don't over finish it, so expected this already soft sweater to soften with age and usage.

The Balto is our everyday sweater designed to be worn anywhere, be that more formally with a shirt, or dressed down with a t-shirt or baselayer. Made in London, England.

The Balto is now available to pre-order.
