Fingerless gloves light grey British Masham
I have hand-knit these lovely fingerless gloves using British Masham wool in a mottled pale grey.
They have a ribbed cuff to slip under your coat to keep the draughts out. The back has a narrow cable design, while the palm is plain. The gloves end in a band of rib, leaving your fingertips clear to use your phone or doorkey easily. The sweet little "Roses Workshop" brand label is laser etched faux leather.
They measure 19cm (7.5 inches) long including the cuff, 14cm (5.5 inches) for the hand section, and the knit is stretchy enough to fit most average adult hands. This lovely light grey goes with anything.
I love working with the many different wools produced here from British breeds of sheep. Named for the town in North Yorkshire, Masham sheep are created by crossing a Teeswater ram with a Swaledale or Dalesbred ewe. The result is a medium sized sheep with very long and lustrous fleece. They have been bred for over a century in the north of England.
More gloves can be found in my shop at Gloves and Mittens.
