These luxuriously soft fair trade gloves are made of 100% baby alpaca, one of the world's finest fibers. Handcrafted by impoverished women in Peru, these beautiful gloves will keep your hands warm while your fingers are free to perform any task (there is also a thumb hole). This version is double layered for extra warmth.
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.
