These luscious fingerless gloves are part of our wonderful new alpaca collection. Handcrafted by women in a fair trade workshop in Cochabamba, they are sumptuously soft. They are great for when you need to use your fingers but want to keep the rest of your hands warm.
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.
Makes a gorgeous set with our Luxurious Alpaca Headband - Geometric Black.
