Knitted with three colored yarn in traditional Estonian fair-isle style. The pattern comes from Võnnu area in Tartu-Maarja County. It is an ancient geometrical pattern, depicting powerful and protective 8-pointed star. It looks a lot like a wind rose. The little dots add extra warmth to this pair, as every seventh row is knitted with three yarns.
This pattern is in Estonian National Museum filed under ERM A 340:1. It was collected in 1920.
Tightly knitted using 0-size needles and DK weight yarn. The off-white and brown yarns are natural sheep color, 100% wool from Estonia. The pink is hand dyed, natural Estonian wool. 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.
