Alpaca Gloves, Full Double Layer - Charcoal, Peru

These beautifully soft gloves are made of 100% baby alpaca, one of the world's finest fibers.   While fingerless gloves are very popular, you've been asking for full coverage gloves, so here they are. The wrist part is double layered for extra warmth, and it has a touch of purple mixed in with the gray (see close up photo).

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
