Knitted mostly with four colored yarn in traditional Estonian fair-isle style. The wrists are knitted in the entralac technique.
The pattern comes from Irboska area in Setoland, Estonia. It is an intricate round motif, depicting waves and circles and crosses. One might see even roses there.
Women in older days were very eager to accommodate new motifs which warriors brought home from far away lands or exotic merchants were selling in towns. This motif is most probably of Roman origin.
Tightly knitted using 0-size needles and DK weight yarn. The colorful yarns are hand dyed, 100% wool from Estonia. The grey is natural sheep color. They are perfect to block wind and wear in winter.
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.
Women’s size, approximately 7-7,5.
