Knitted mostly with three colored yarn in traditional Estonian fair-isle style. The wrists are knitted in the entralac technique using matching shades, some pinks and grey.
The pattern comes from Petseri area in Setoland, currently in Pskovs Oblast, Russia. It is an ancient geometrical pattern, depicting a flower on a stem. Another charming interprateation I have heard is following: the stem or tree is something the souls can climb on and reach to heaven, the bloom.
Tightly knitted using 0-size needles and DK weight yarn. The yarns are hand dyed, 100% wool from Estonia. The grey is natural sheep color, undied. They are perfect to block wind and wear in winter.
The gloves are colorworked all the way to the fingertips, which makes them warmer than average thin one-leyer gloves. The yarn being rather thin makes them very comfortable to wear and they fit like a second skin.
