Fingerless gloves in soft Wensleydale wool
I have hand-knit these lovely fingerless gloves using fabulously soft Wensleydale British wool. The colour is a deep teal or turquoise blue.
They have a long cuff to slip under your coat to keep the draughts out. The back has a classic Y-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.
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. Gentle hand wash recommended.
I love working with the many different wools produced here from British breeds of sheep. The Wensleydale is from Yorkshire; it has long shiny, crinkly wool that looks like dreadlocks. It is very soft and lustrous, my favourite for gloves.
More gloves can be found in my shop at Gloves and Mittens.
