    How wide are the Buffs when not worn?

    • Edward

      Hi Nina,

      the Wool Buff® is about 24 cm (9.45 inch) wide when not worn.

  • Michael

    Would this garment provide some degree of UV protection? I need something that’s made out of natural fibres (fire retardent) and ideally something that provides a high level of protection from the sun. Thanks.
