Knitted with three colored yarn in traditional Estonian fair-isle style. The pattern comes from Panjavitsa area in Setoland, ESTONIA. It is an simple ancient motif, depicting the tree … where the bird laid the egg and the world started.
Tightly knitted using 0-size needles and DK weight yarn. The yellow and orange yarns are hand dyed, 100% wool from Estonia. The Dark blown is natural sheep color. 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 color-worked 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.
Setos are an ethnic and linguistic minority living in an area covering South-East Estonia and West of Pskov Region in Russia.
