These Fingerless Gloves are made of a soft, high quality wool & hemp blend with long fibers for strength, warmth, and durability. These are the gloves-of-choice for outdoors wintersport pianists. The color of the hemp allows for soft heathery tones that compliments the brighter tones of the wool. Each glove has a soft cotton liner to add further warmth and comfort.
The gloves originate from groups of knitters in Nepal. Each group is fairly paid and has steady employment. This fair trade importer has worked with many of the knitters since the 1980's, when they were first learning to knit. Now many are master knitters teaching others; one specific goal is to incorporate widowed women from the civil war and provide them with the same employment opportunities.
Your fair trade purchase provides you with excellent gloves and also provides a fair wage to an individual in Nepal.
