Knitted with two colored yarn in traditional Estonian fair-isle style. The pattern is an ancient Estonian pattern depicting trees or snow piles or little hills. It comes from Otepää area in Valga County, ESTONIA. It reminds a lot a certain Japanese pattern with similar curved stripes.
Tightly knitted using 0-size needles and DK weight yarn. The dark red yarn is hand dyed, the off-white is natural sheep color, both 100% wool from Estonia. They are perfect to block wind and wear in winter. Beautiful lacy ribbing is very elegant, like a bracelet around your wrist.
The gloves are colorworked all the way to the fingertips, which makes them warmer than average thin one-layer gloves. The yarn being rather thin makes them very comfortable to wear and they fit like a second skin.
