These sumptuously soft, beautiful gloves are part of our wonderful new alpaca collection. Handmade by women in a fair trade cooperative in Peru, they are made of 100% baby alpaca - one of the world's most luxurious fibers. They are a thick, warm, loose fitting glove with a beautiful cable knit design on the front. The purple hues in these are stunning.
Considered by many a higher quality material than cashmere, alpaca is one of the world’s most valuable natural fibers. Just ask any Incan Emperor why only the royal families were allowed to wear it! It is luxuriously soft (not at all itchy!), hypoallergenic, breathable, warm, lightweight and durable. Best of all, it is a natural, eco-friendly fiber and the artisans are paid fair wages.
100% Baby Alpaca
Makes a fabulous set with our Luxurious Alpaca Headband - Berry Cable.
