These gorgeously soft fingerless gloves are handmade from 50% fine alpaca wool, 45%acrylic and 5% sheep wool. Hand spun and hand knitted by skilled artisans working with Manos Amigas, our fair trade partner in Peru. Making these beautiful products not only provides a better life for the artisans who make them, but also saves the coloured alpacas from extinction by providing a use for their wool.
To clean: gently wash in warm water with a mild soap (mild shampoo will do) and thoroughly rinse in water of the same temperature. Never wring or twist. Gently press excess water from garment. Dry flat out of direct sun. Do not tumble dry.
Manos Amigas partners with talented artisans from all over Peru to find new markets for their products, provide regular training and communicate trends in product design. Their work includes social services such as food programmes and providing school supplies for needy children.Read more
