Light and warm women’s merino wool and Tencel turtleneck. Activist Turtleneck is a comfortable and allround base layer for outdoor adventures all year around.
The Activist series are the perfect everyday hard working garments. Designed for maximal versatility and comfort, these clothes can do just about anything. The warm and cozy merino wool and Tencel blend works perfectly for skiing, ice skating or any other winter sport but it’s still light enough to not overheat you in the summer. Wool has a way of adapting to your body temperature that few other materials can match.
The fabric is made from 60% super fine 19,3µm merino wool and 40% Tencel™ Lyocell. Tencel is a sleek and soft fiber that gives the merino wool a great texture and better moisture management. Wool provides a comfortable warmth and is naturally odor resistant. The Activist fabric is made from all natural fibers and is therefore completely biodegradable as well as recyclable.
Activist Turtleneck has a slim fit and high collar that will keep you warm in the ski slopes, on your bicycle commute or anywhere in between. If you are looking for a 4-season base layer that will last for years, this is your match.
Please don’t throw away this garment when it’s worn out. Activist Turtleneck shirt is made from renewable and biodegradable fibers. The raw materials are valuable and can be used again through recycling or composting. Bring it back to a Houdini shop or one of our retailers that has a Houdini recycling unit.

Wool is a fantastic material with natural bacterial and dirt resistance. Therefore, wool does not need to be washed after every use. Frequent washing has a negative effect on the wool's properties and unnecessarily wears down the garment. Instead, air your wool garments to reduce your water usage, save energy and make your garments last longer.
Use a washing bag to protect your garments.
Machine gentle wash at max 30 degrees, preferably with a wool program.
If you can, use wool detergents. Otherwise use mild, environmentally certified detergents and make sure to use the right dose. Select a detergent that has a neutral pH and no enzymes.
Avoid bleach and alkaline substances that raise the pH value. Also avoid enzymes such as protease or amylase since these can break down wool, which give this material its natural performance properties. This also applies to silk.
Avoid fabric softener. Besides being harmful for our environment, they have a negative impact on the garment performance, mainly moisture transportation and breathability.
Do not dry in tumble dryer.
Shape the garment after washing and lay flat to dry.
This product is fully circular, meaning that it's made either from recycled and recyclable or renewable and biodegradable fibers. Most products in today's society are made in a linear lifecycle, where earth's resources are extracted, used and then discarded. This is not working in the long run and comes at a great environmental impact. Instead, we want to close the loop and reuse the material we already have. But we need your help. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us through the recycling units we have in all our own stores and at many retailers.
The fabric in this product is fully biodegradable. Thanks to that fact that we never mix our natural fibers with synthetics and don't use harmful chemicals, you can put the fabric in a compost and nature will transform the fabric into fertile soil. Trimmings like care labels, zippers, seams etc have to be removed and can often be recycled separately. If you don't have your own compost, you can return the worn out garment to us. We have recycling units in all our own stores and at many retailers.

When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us. We have recycle units in all of our own stores and at many retailers.
