From our Kia Ora Collection these warm and cosy gloves, hand knit with Malabrigo Arroyo, a Superwash 100% hand dyed Merino Wool, are an ode to the vibrant energy of Queenstown in the South Island of New Zealand. Beautiful textured and ribbed stitches form the glove, making them a must have this season. Being fingerless, they not only give you the benefit of a glove but also allow you to perform everyday tasks like texting, turning pages, or riding a bike without having to take them off. Also makes for a lovely gift.
Here is the pattern for these fingerless gloves. And in case you can’t knit, you can always buy it from our store here (https://www.thehappyhandsstore.com/Kia-Ora-Hand-Knit-Collection/Queenstown–Fingerless-Gloves-id-3872446.html). Choose the colour that you want it in and write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our knitters will be very happy to knit it specially for you.
