~* Striped Knit Armwarmers *~
These super cute armwarmers are so warm and comfortable! Made from soft wool in a lovely simple stripe pattern and fully fleece lined, they are really warm. And these armwarmers have the added bonus of leaving the ends of your thumbs and fingers free to use your phone, or keys, or eat your mince pie without the bother of removing them like you would with gloves! The armwarmers are nice and long too, going right up your arm towards the elbow for extra warmth and snuggliness. The slight stretch in the wool and fleece means that they will fit a wide range of hand and arm sizes comfortably. Perfect for winter, and for chilly festival nights too.
Outer 100% Wool + 100% Fleece Lining. One size fits all.
Handmade and Fairly Traded from Nepal
Handwash in Cold Water only. Dry flat to prevent stretching out of shape.
Knitting 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.
