  • Knitted with three colored yarn in traditional Estonian fair-isle style. The pattern is an ancient Estonian pattern depicting crosses and squares. It also reminds me a beetle. I found this patterns from a neighbour's house in my home village Männisalu in Räpina Township, ESTONIA. Tightly knitted using 0-size needles and DK weight yarn. All the yarns are hand dyed, 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-leyer gloves. The yarn being rather thin makes them very comfortable to wear and they fit like a second skin. Women's size.
