These gorgeous chunky stripe recycled sari wrist warmers are just so pretty! Hand knitted in lovely soft wool combined with recycled sari yarn for a unique colour combination that is beautiful and unique. The textured pattern in the weave adds more depth to the design, and even more warmth.
These wool and recycled sari wrist warmers are perfect for out in the cold – or for working at home in winter! Made from beautiful tie-dye effect wool and fully fleece lined, they are really warm and snuggly but have the added bonus of leaving the ends of your thumbs and fingers free to use your phone, or keyboard, or eat your mince pie without the bother of removing them like you would with gloves! The wool and fleece is stretchy so can accommodate a wide range of sizes. Each pair is handmade, individual and unique.

Handwash gently in cold water. Dry flat to avoid misshaping.
Please note that the exact colour and pattern placement may differ slightly from that pictured, this is due to all items being handmade and dyed in individual dye lots as well as using unique recycled materials, therefore there is some variation. This is not a fault and is part of the unique charm of the product.
Knitting/Crocheting in Nepal
Often employment can be difficult to maintain for many women in Nepal, who need to balance work with managing their homes and looking after not only their children, but also older and extended family members. Knitting is a great way for them to continue to earn whilst also being flexible. Hand knitted items can be picked up and put down. Knitting is also a great way for women to socialize in their communities as they sit and knit. This means that they can take on as little or as much work as they feel able to do, and can supplement their family income in an empowering way that compliments their lifestyle. Knitting can also be done without the use of electricity or any additional equipment so can be done all year round – Nepal suffers from electricity shortages in the colder months. By buying items knitted in Nepal we are empowering women to become self supporting and to improve their lives.
