British wool fingerless gloves in two colours
Simple and stylish fingerless gloves in two beautiful colours. I have hand knitted these cosy wrist warmers using some of the softest of British wools: the main part of the hand is Blue-faced Leicester wool, with English Merino for the wrist and trim.
I have started with a ribbed cuff to slip under your coat to keep the draughts out. The backs and palms are plain, making them suitable for men or women. The gloves end in a band of rib, leaving your fingertips clear to use your phone or doorkey easily. The little "Roses Workshop" brand label is laser etched faux leather.
They measure 20cm (8 inches) long including the cuff, 15cm (6 inches) for the hand section, and the knit is stretchy enough to fit most average adult hands. Gentle hand wash recommended.
I love working with the many different wools produced here from British breeds of sheep.
The Blue-faced Leicester looks down it's long roman nose at you. It is the skin which is dark blue/grey colour - the wool is white and curly, and one of the softest in the UK.
