  1. How wide are the Buffs when not worn?

    1. Hi Nina,

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

  2. 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.

  3. Are merino buffs available in slim fit? I absolutely love mine but i have a little knot at one end to make it smaller 🙂 I’d love to get another slightly tighter one for my next trip.
    Thanks

    1. Not at the moment, Colleen.

      Have you tried stretching them? You can decrease the diameter of tubes by pulling them. It’s a bit of a fitness activity because it’s not easy but it works.
      Just grab the tube at both ends and keep pulling it and relaxing it again. Just like a rubber band expanding exercise. Best is to do it while your watching TV or so because you have to do it a lot.

      Regards,
      Edward

  4. I would like to try one for bush firefighting, are there any synthetics in the material.

    1. Hi Marco,

      There are no synthetics in the material. It’s 100% Merino Wool.
      Have you seen the Fire Resistant Buff® made out of Nomex™?
      It might suit you better.

    Is this the lightweight, midweight, or heavyweight wool merino Buff?

    1. It’s the lightweight Wool Buff®. Mid and Heavy were added later and are currently not available in Australia.
