Hand Knitted Lady's Gloves from Petseri - Christmas Special

Price: 76,00
Description: Knitted with three colored yarn in traditional Estonian fair-isle style. Tightly knitted using 0-size needles and DK weight yarn. The yarn is hand dyed, 100% wool from Estonia. They are perfect to block wind and wear in winter.

This pattern comes from Petseri area in Setomaa and it is combined with two different old gloves and mittens. I found the pattern for the lovely vine from old gloves in the Estonian National Museum under ERM 18523. That pair was collected in 1909 from Serga village. The main motif was found from the same source under A 782:16 and was collected from Kosselki village.  I really like the Seto motifs with an actual Seto color combination of red and white.

The lacy cuffs are knitted using more green just to emphasize the season and its floral ties.

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.

Women's size, also available for custom order in any sizes.
